    Hi, I chose to do law at Notthumbria and got an unconditional, but I don't know whether the one I've chosen is MLAW or MLAW (Exempting). I'm really confused because there was only one option to chose when applying for law, so I'm worried about which one I'm actually doing and whether it's something I get to choose later

    Ring them up and confirm or look at their website. If there are two degree I'd imagine one of them is more like a GDL they have made into an MA so youcan go to be a lawyer, whilst the other is more academic. Make sure you choose the correct one because I suspect the exempting one might fill up quickly.

    They only do MLaw (Exempting). By all means ring them up for peace of mind, but I am right.

    Thank you! I will ring up to check but I was confused as there are two options on the website, one is 3 years and one is 4. Do you know why?

    The MLaw is a 4 year degree which incorporates the material which would otherwise be in an LPC. The 3 year option allows candidates, who no longer which to be solicitors, to bail out after 3 years with an LLB.

    The purpose behind this course is to secure funding for the fourth year for people who otherwise could not afford law school.
