BU Master's Law degrees featured in The i newspaper
27 March 2013
Master's Law courses offered by Bournemouth University were featured in an article in The i about career options opened up by doing postgraduate training in law.
The article, by Russ Thorne, argues that postgraduate training in law can provide students with many different opportunities.
While some students may pursue the Master's to move into a legal career having done a different undergraduate degree, BU's Sally Weston says that existing lawyers can also benefit.
Sally, who is head of the Law department, said that a Master of laws (LLM) course provides in-depth training.
"The LLM curriculum is designed to develop critical evaluation and analysis," she says in the article, which appeared in a postgraduate study supplement.
She continues: "LLM students interpret the meaning of words and abstract concept skills which are useful for law and other careers that require analysis of complex qualitative data."
