Department of Law

Welcome to the Department of Law

With a proud tradition in critical legal education and an internationally recognised body of research, the Department of Law, part of the School of Law, is a stimulating and dynamic environment for students and academics alike.

We offer a broad range of degree specialisms including Human Rights and International Economic Law, as well as our postgraduate Qualifying Law Degree and flagship intensive LLM programmes.

The combination of Birkbeck's unique evening study model, leaving students free to gain practical legal experience in the day, and rigorous academic study means that 80% of graduates are in graduate-level work.
