Study at a multi award-winning university
The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university located in the heart of Glasgow – Scotland’s largest, most cosmopolitan city. With more than 23,000 students from over 100 countries, the University of Strathclyde is a vibrant and welcoming place for students from all backgrounds.
For more than 200 years Strathclyde has been delivering academic excellence through world-class research and teaching, providing students with flexible, innovative learning in preparation for their chosen career path.
We’re delighted to have won Times Higher Education University of the Year 2019 – the only university to be awarded the UK-wide award for a second time. We have also been recognised as Scottish University of the Year 2020 by the Sunday Times Good University Guide, and were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize, the highest national honour awarded to our sector.
For over 50 years the Law School have sought the best ways to provide legal research and education that is relevant in a modern and dynamic world. We have established a reputation for high quality teaching and research in the UK and internationally, not only in traditional core subjects essential for entry to the legal profession, but also in a wider range of postgraduate subjects such as construction law, human rights law and internet law and policy.
Masters of Law Programmes
Strathclyde Law School is committed to excellence in both teaching and research as our rankings testify. Our priority is to help you develop the professional skills and knowledge you need, and employers truly value.
We offer unrivalled opportunities for experiential learning through our award-winning Law Clinic and classes that blend real life experience and academic study. Our reputation for innovation is second to none. We were one of the first Law Schools to offer a part time LLB, deliver online teaching, and pioneer a transactional-learning based Diploma in Professional Legal Practice.
Responding to students’ needs and key social and legal developments, the provision of innovative taught programmes are another of Strathclyde’s hallmarks. Law degrees are not only available in traditional formats, but by two year accelerated, or part-time evening attendance. Masters degrees such as construction law, competition law, human rights law and internet law and policy are available for evening study or by online distance learning to suit the needs of professionals and students abroad.
Many of our research centres and courses have an international perspective and our Graduate School provides a welcoming and supportive environment for international students to integrate into the University and explore the city and rest of Scotland. Our innovative postgraduate courses are designed to help our students succeed in an increasingly technological age and to do so with social conscience.
A first or upper second-class Honours undergraduate degree or equivalent. Please note an LLB is not a prerequisite for entry to our Masters programme.
Entry may be possible with a lower second-class Honours degree, if you also have suitable professional qualifications and/or considerable appropriate experience.
Our student experience is at the heart of everything we do. The University is making strategic investment that aims to underpin our goal of providing high-quality, research-led education and an excellent student experience.

Meet Our Students Sayali Walavalkar, India LLM Human Rights Law
One particular highlight was getting a chance to volunteer with the University Law Clinic under the leadership of my course leader Dr. Elaine Webster. We worked the project with InControl Scotland where we got a chance to interview the relevant stakeholders such as the Advocates and Solicitors dealing with the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013.
Tinotenda Jakazi, Zimbabwe LLM International Commercial Law
The academic reputation of the University of Strathclyde, as a leading research institution was of particular attraction to me, especially the rankings of its law department among other prominent global educational institutions. I was also attracted to Strathclyde by the beauty and culture of Glasgow.
Gordon McKinlay, United Kingdom MSc Mediation and Conflict Resolution
Taking the time to think deeply, read widely and engage with others has proved to be extremely valuable. The combination of approaches to learning have been challenging with a real highlight being the practical workshops associated with the practice of mediation. The opportunity to volunteer with the mediation clinic has also provided valuable experience out with my normal setting which I could never have gained in any other way.
