About the MSc programme
The programme is intended for graduates with a good first degree in law or for graduates in anthropology and related disciplines who seek to study selected aspects of law and legal theory.
The programme offers a foundation in those elements of anthropological and socio-legal theory essential to an understanding of law in society, and provides training in appropriate research methods. The programme achieves this through: a core course combining lectures, classes and an innovative research seminar; the supervised crafting of an individual programme of two further courses in law or anthropology (or exceptionally another social science) selected according to the academic background and research interest of the student; and supervision of a dissertation.
Fee level: UK/EU £10,272; overseas £15,888

Another course from law, anthropology or a related discipline may be taken instead of the above subject to the approval of your supervisor and the course teacher(s). Among law courses which students have taken in recent years are: Policing and Police Powers; International Law and the Protection of Refugees; Human Rights in the Developing World; Globalisation, Regulation and Governance; International Law: Theory and Practice; Employment Law; Constitutional Theory; and The Theory, History and Practice of Human Rights.
Please note that only a limited selection of the optional courses will be available each year.
If you have a first degree in law you must take at least one of the two option courses in anthropology along with the core course Law in Society; if you have a first degree in social science you must take at least one of the two courses in law. You will be closely advised by your supervisor so as to form a well designed programme in line with your previous studies and research interests.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Minimum entry requirement:
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
