Master of Laws by Coursework and Minor Thesis
The Law School must approve your combination of subjects and thesis topic. Your thesis topic will usually build on the subjects you have completed, and the minor thesis should be suitable for publication in a learned legal journal or otherwise of a standard approved by the Law School.
Once you have submitted your thesis topic to the Law School for approval, an appropriate supervisor will be sought who may help you to refine your chosen topic. Once final approval is obtained, a supervisor is appointed and supervision is carried out in accordance with the Law School's Code of Supervisory Practice.
