Postgraduate Law

This is for the rights champions

Develop specialist knowledge in your chosen legal field.

Our postgraduate law courses offer a core curriculum and a range of optional modules, allowing you to tailor your studies to suit your career aspirations. You don't need a background or undergraduate degree in law to study an LLM, meaning you can start afresh in the legal sector with no previous experience.

Our flexible LLM programmes can be studied full-time or part-time, and on-campus or by distance learning, allowing you to schedule your studies around any current commitments.

"This is where I am empowered"

Fiona came from a French civil law background and wanted to excel in her career with postgraduate study.

"I saw the University of Bradford and I felt, wow this is great. I saw a lot of students were included in everything they did. I felt like that was exciting and I would want something like that."
