For over 85 years Birmingham Law School has made a major contribution to teaching and scholarship. Our academic staff are amongst the country's most eminent legal scholars and provide a supportive research culture that encourages and facilitates research activities. As well as providing expert supervision from an experienced member of staff, the School cultivates a friendly and supportive environment for its community of research students. We currently have over 70 students engaged in research degrees in the School. We regard postgraduate research students as playing an important part in maintaining and strengthening the research traditions of the School, and we are committed to increasing the number of such students and the range of the research which they are undertaking. It is not without significance that several members of the School’s academic staff were themselves postgraduate students here.

Juris Doctor
Category:
Social Sciences - Law & Criminology
Residency Requirements: No residency requirements.
The Juris Doctor (JD) seeks to provide the academic knowledge and skills needed to embark upon a career as a practising lawyer but also was created in the knowledge that not all graduates want, or are able, to work as barristers or solicitors. The JD is available entirely online, in external mode enabling you to balance your study with other commitments, and study from anywhere. Each topic comprises six tasks scheduled across the semester to guide your learning. Assessment is undertaken entirely online using video conferencing and other virtual collaboration tools. The JD offers an innovative model of postgraduate education. It is taught in collaboration with the legal profession and provides opportunities for learning in an authentic context, with real client work experience a requirement of the course. The design of the JD with its blended learning style and adult learning principles provides flexibility that will enable you to balance your other commitments.
