Here's the BIG Picture

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi 

Mahatma Gandhi, who was a lawyer himself, aptly described how learning is a lifelong process. To lead a life as inspiring as Gandhi’s and truly leave an impact, we need to continuously learn and better ourselves. As a lawyer or lawyer-to-be, you need to set yourself apart by delving into deeper understandings of the law. Our Master of Arts in Law is tailored to provide you with the intellectual skills and professional expertise required in specialist areas of law, such as Criminal, Commercial, Corporate, and IT Law, amongst others.  

This Postgraduate programme is also a necessary stepping stone to a PhD. It will enable you to make academic contacts and develop the necessary research and writing skills required to undertake further academic study. The Master of Arts in Law also allows lawyers to further develop their careers in a direction of their choosing. This programme births multilingual, international lawyers who can be attractive candidates for “in-house” roles, especially with companies looking to expand into new markets.
