Postgraduate Pathway leading to Law

The Law degree at St Mary’s University is taught by leading academics in the field, and former solicitors and barristers, in an open and friendly environment, with emphasis given to supporting students as individuals. This innovative Master’s degree covers cutting-edge contemporary legal trade issues in the post-Brexit world. It will provide you with a detailed understanding of the complexities of international trade and business law. If you have not studied English law before, don’t worry, the course has been designed to ensure you will receive the support and guidance to study these successfully.

The Master’s programme offers you a very supportive teaching team with additional input from expert practitioners. We take pride in our reputation as a friendly university with a community-feel. The University is ideally located close to central London - the world’s leading financial centre - allowing you access to public events and seminars in the City of London. As part of your course, you will have the opportunity to visit key legal and City institutions. The LLM in International and European Business Law offers the opportunity to spend the second semester in France, studying at ICP, Paris.

Our degree programmes are connected to the Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery and the Centre for Law and Culture. You're encouraged to attend public lectures and other suitable events as these opportunities will enable you to develop learning beyond your studies, both in the context of further studies and career development.

The School of Management and Social Sciences at St Mary's scored 91% for Overall Satisfaction in the 2016 National Student Survey and was rated 90% for teaching satisfaction, with 94% of students agreeing that staff are good at explaining things.
