Our integrated Master’s in Law and Practice (MLaw) is a unique programme that incorporates a full LLB(Hons) Law degree, while also allowing you to obtain a Law Master’s degree. This rigorous but highly rewarding degree prepares you for an exciting career in law and advocacy, with special emphasis on supporting you to develop competencies for Solicitor’s Qualifying Exams (SQE1 and SQE2). This course aims to develop your skills in interviewing, advocacy, drafting legal documents, legal ethics/conducts/procedures, supporting you to develop a career as a solicitor in England and Wales. You’ll also gain a host of transferrable skills, such as how to construct an argument, how to communicate with clients, the importance of attention to detail and critical thinking, being creative, and the ability to work on your own and as a team. You can volunteer in the Legal Advice Clinic, too, and the Moot Scheme, where you’ll witness law in action and develop competences to be a solicitor. Our Mentoring Scheme and the Law Careers Fair allows you to network with our Partner Law firms, introducing you to opportunities for work experience and employment with them. Why Study MLaw (incorporating LLB(Hons)) Law and Practice at University of Huddersfield? You’ll be taught my practitioners and legal academics who bring their industry and research expertise into classroom teaching. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities, allowing you to put your legal knowledge and skills to the test. You’ll also have access to our purpose-built mock courtroom, too, where you’ll learn legal etiquette, prepare a mock case, and compete with other law schools in mock trials. You can volunteer, too, in our Legal Advice Clinic, providing legal support to real clients under supervision. This allows you to build your formal qualifying legal work experience, essential for becoming a solicitor. Although this course will support you to develop competences which are required to be a solicitor, the wide range of transferrable skills you’ll develop will introduce you to careers opportunities in other legal, law-related, and non-legal sectors. For example, paralegal, legal assistant, or legal consultant, corporate lawyer, legal academic, public service, and many more.
