Master of Legal Business

Program Overview

Successfully leading a 21st century legal practice or law department requires a range of skills few professionals can learn ‘on the job’. This is particularly so in a time of volatility and change in the provision of legal services.

Traditional management courses provide a solid grounding in various disciplines but are not tailored to the particular needs of the legal services industry.

The College of Law has launched a series of subjects for both in-house and private practice legal professionals which will build to a new qualification – The Master of Legal Business:

  • Developed and delivered by leaders in their field
  • Short subjects of only 6 weeks duration
  • Taught mainly online with some face-to-face attendance
  • Earn CPD points
