MSc Law, Anthropology and Society

Welcome to LSE Law at the London School of Economics and Political Science. We are one of the largest and most vibrant departments at LSE, and, together with the Department of Anthropology, we are very proud of our specialist and interdisciplinary MSc in Law, Anthropology and Society. This programme draws on the established strengths of the Department of Law and the Department of Anthropology. Both departments rank alongside the most highly rated departments in the subjects worldwide and have important relationships with professional and regulatory bodies.

The London School of Economics and Political Science is one of the world’s leading social science institutions and, since the foundation of LSE just over a century ago, the study of law and anthropology have been an integral part of the School’s mission. We are confident that this will make your studies an enriching experience. You will be challenged and stimulated by the MSc programme, which will provide you with a highly marketable qualification as well as a firm intellectual grounding for your career. We hope that you will find this course, the Department and the wider LSE community an exciting intellectual environment for your postgraduate studies.

This is a fulltime, 12 month interdisciplinary programme aimed at students interested in developing cross-cultural perspectives on law and who wish to go on either to undertake further research in the area, or to develop their interest in an area of professional legal practice.
