    Middlesex University in London - Law


    Undergraduate: LLB Honours Law
    If you want to practise law as a solicitor or barrister, or to enter some other law-related form of employment, then the LLB is your best choice. It is the only undergraduate programme that offers a qualifying law degree for exemption from the academic stage of professional legal education, recognised by the Joint Academic Stage Board of the Law Society and Bar Council of England and Wales. You will gain an excellent grounding in legal skills and the foundation subjects and opportunities to gain specialist knowledge in optional modules such as Employment and Discrimination Law.

    Undergraduate: BA Honours Law
    This degree provides an opportunity to study law as an academic discipline, rather than as a route to the legal profession. In addition to a firm grounding in the principles of the English legal system, selected legal topics are examined from the perspective of their social, political, economic, ethical or historical context. The programme also develops skills valuable for careers in business, management or administration.

    The course does not offer exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister.

    Undergraduate: BA Honours Law and Business

    This pathway offers a firm grounding in the principles of the English legal system, the legal regulation of employment and the impact of European Union law on the business environment. Alongside the legal subjects, you will study business strategy, ethics and entrepreneurship modules, developing knowledge and skills sought after by employers.

    This course does not offer exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister.

    Postgraduate: PGCert Employment Law
    This programme provides a vital understanding of the legal and regulatory framework surrounding employment - making it a critical study choice for professionals who need a sophisticated understanding of the legal aspects of human resource management.

    Postgraduate: Common Professional Examination (CPE)/Graduate Diploma in Law
    This intensive programme provides an excellent opportunity for non-law graduates to complete the academic stage of legal professional training. It is approved by the Law Society and the Bar Council through the Joint Academic Stage Board. Successful completion carries the award of Graduate Diploma in Law and leads to the professional stage of legal training via the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Vocational Course

    Postgraduate: MA Human Resource Management and Employment Law
    Middlesex University combines one of the best environments in the UK for human resource management education with top staff expertise in employment law.

You can exit after two modules if you wish to focus only on employment law.

    Postgraduate: LLM
    In today's competitive global legal environment, the right postgraduate qualification confers a distinct advantage. This LLM programme has been designed to reflect the diverse needs of students looking for postgraduate qualifications in law by allowing choice from the complete selection of modules available within the Law Department.

    The International Business Law programme has been attracting students from all over the world since it was established. The highly-regarded programme offers choice and flexibility, enabling you to develop areas of particular interest, for example intellectual property law or in-depth study of the World Trade Organisation.

    Postgraduate: LLM Employment Law
    Employment law is a highly marketable specialism within the field, both for lawyers and for professionals from corporate functions such as human resource management. This LLM provides an indepth coverage of recruitment, termination and discrimination law with options in EU law, corporate governance and responsibility and international human rights.
    The Law Department has two professors of Employment Law with national reputations who lead this programme.

    Postgraduate: Minorities, Rights and the Law
    This programme is set within the significant and growing field of human rights law and focuses on the specific area of minorities, rights and the law. It is taught by leading exponents in the field and enables you to concentrate on your chosen interest while gaining an advantage in a competitive field through links with non-governmental organisations. The Head of the Law Department, Professor Joshua Castellino, helped to establish one of the world's most respected programmes in Human Rights Law at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
