A Master of Arts (MA) in Law is a postgraduate degree program that focuses on providing students with an advanced understanding of legal principles and practices. Unlike traditional LLB (Bachelor of Laws) programs, which are undergraduate degrees, the MA in Law is designed for individuals who already hold an undergraduate degree in a non-law discipline but wish to gain legal knowledge and expertise.
