The MA Law by Research is an ideal choice for you, if you want to undertake in-depth and individually supervised research on a topic of your own choice. It is ideal if you are aiming to proceed to doctoral study, or if you wish to enhance your career prospects by developing expertise in a specific area of law, and improve your research and writing skills. The ability to undertake a major piece of research is a transferable skill which is relevant to many different kinds of employment.

The programme accommodates practical and traditional approaches, as well as theoretical and inter-disciplinary. Though the emphasis is on one-to-one supervision, the MA Law by Research can extend into many areas. The Department of Law has well-known strengths in many areas of law including criminal law, human rights and public international law. Students interested in commercial areas of law, including arbitration, banking and finance, tax, intellectual property, IT and communications law can also apply to draw on the expertise of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS). View the law staff list to see the full range of expertise within the School.

This programme will:

* Offer you the choice to really specialise in an area of your choosing.
* Give you a solid foundation if your aim is PhD study.
* Give you research skills and methodologies.

Core modules

* Research project (20,000-word dissertation)
* Research methods module

The research methods module will expose you to a broad range of theoretical and practical approaches to legal research. This module will be taught through one two-hour seminar each week. In the first-term the programme covers theoretical topics including ethics and law, law and economics, systems theory, liberal theory, and critical theory. In the second term, the programme has a methods focus and covers areas such as research interviews, literature review and historical research methods. These second-term seminars will, so far as is possible, be tailored to the dissertations of enrolled students.
