Overview

On this programme, you will graduate with a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate in Law with no named specialism, allowing you to mix different subjects without restriction, according to your interests.

Please note that the programme code for the Postgraduate Certificate programme is LWLC, and the Postgraduate Diploma is LWLD.

There is therefore no requirement for any minimum number of credits to be studied in any particular specialist area or as a dissertation topic. All Staff and Research units of the School of Law and Social Justice collaborate in the delivery of this programme.



Why School of Law?

Solid academic pedigree

We combine over a hundred years’ teaching experience with modern approaches to learning. Alumni include judges of the House of Lords, Court of Appeal, High Court and County Court, members of Parliament and legal practitioners, as well as accountants, social workers and bankers, who continue to make an important contribution to the learning experience and career prospects of our students. The first female High Court judge in the country was a Liverpool Law graduate.

Developing professionalism

Our students have the opportunity to develop their professional skills through the activities of the School’s Pro-bono Law Clinic. The Clinic is operated by the Law School in association with members of the local legal community and enables students to enjoy the professional experience of dispensing legal advice to real clients, under the guidance and supervision of Law School staff and practising members of the profession.

Mentoring

We also offer a Law School Mentoring Scheme, whereby students are assigned to a local barrister or solicitor who will act as their mentor. The mentor will provide careers advice and assistance to their mentees on a personal and individual basis. This is in addition to the wider careers advisory programme run by the Law School and the University.

Leading experts

Academic staff are leading experts in their fields and research feeds into teaching at a postgraduate level, keeping students informed of the latest developments.

Supportive environment

Pastoral care is very important in the School, and it aims to provide a supportive environment in which students can flourish.
