Europe is developing as a market in terms of land through continental and cross-border transactions, the migration of people from one country to another and the rapid rise in the purchase of second homes. Developing a thorough knowledge and understanding of land law, which underpins so many of these transactions, is therefore vital for professionals working in related fields.

The School of Law is leading the way in the field of European land law, with the first postgraduate course in England devoted specifically to land law in its European and comparative aspects. This programme offers the opportunity to study a unique combination of subjects that are taught by highly-respected academic researchers who are acknowledged specialists in the field. As a result, you will gain a unique qualification and you will be well-placed to pursue your chosen career with specialist and in-depth knowledge of this important area.
