The MA Law Online is a postgraduate Master of Arts specifically designed for non-law graduates who want to gain a legal qualification at Master’s level. As an internationally recognised qualification, a Law Master’s is a great addition to your portfolio. With a strong level of support from the start, this course is a great introduction to law if you hold an undergraduate degree in another discipline.

 Successful completion of the MA Law also qualifies you to progress on to study the LPC to become a solicitor or the BPC to become a barrister. With this online version of our MA Law you can study online, giving you a truly flexible online Master’s course.

Our MA Law Online is designed for non-law graduates who want to gain a legal qualification at Master’s level. We offer full-time and part-time options, so you can choose a study mode to suit your lifestyle and career plans. We’ve designed the course to provide you with practical legal skills like analysis and critical evaluation, alongside a range of broader transferable skills such as research and presentation skills, all delivered online by qualified lawyers. On completion of the course you will be awarded with a Master’s degree, but you will also be suitably qualified to progress your studies to become a solicitor or barrister in the UK by studying our LPC or BPC. If you choose to progress onto either of these courses, you will benefit from our excellent employment and pupillage rates:
95% of our 2017/18 full-time, UK, LPC graduates have secured work or further study within fifteen months of successfully completing this course (based on Graduate Outcomes data).
59% of our full-time UK/EEA BPC students graduating in 2018 secured a pupillage (based on student data collated September 2020). Previously the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).
A Master’s qualification is highly attractive to employers in a variety of disciplines, so this can be of great benefit even if you don’t want to pursue a career in law. This course is the perfect choice if you want to study online and wish to keep your career options open.

In addition to the course and learning materials, you’ll also have access to our expert careers support services, who can help you with your training contract and pupillage applications. Our pro bono team have over 3,000 pro bono opportunities, which are available to you from as soon as you accept your place, so you can get loads of experience of working on real life cases and get “on-the-job” advice from practising lawyers.

If you choose to progress onto study our LPC or BPC, you will also benefit from our excellent employment and pupillage rates:

95% of our 2017/18 full-time, UK, LPC graduates have secured work or further study within fifteen months of successfully completing this course (based on Graduate Outcomes data).
59% of our full-time UK/EEA BPC students graduating in 2018 secured a pupillage (based on student data collated September 2020). Previously the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC).
