The MLaw in Legal Theory & Solicitors Practice is designed for those who wish to qualify as a solicitor in England & Wales. A unique 4-year model enables students to study the foundations of legal knowledge during years 1 and 2 in line with other LLB degrees in the sector. However, in year 3 students will study a SQE1 prep course alongside optional modules that will enable them to specialize in their chosen field (i.e. Corporate Law, High Street Practice, etc) and to sit the Stage 1 of the SRA’s centralized examination at that time. Year 4 will then provide students who have successfully completed SQE1 with the opportunity to continue their studies by undertaking the SQE2 prep course alongside Masters level modules. This provides students with the opportunity to enhance their legal knowledge and to sit SQE2. Students are also offered the opportunity to work in the School’s Law Clinic which may contribute to the 2 years of Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) required by the SRA for a student to to qualify as a solicitor in England & Wales.
Most modules use a mixture of formal lectures, tutorials and seminars. All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners. Assessments involve a combination of coursework assessments and formal examinations held at the end of each semester.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
