This year's course starts on the 25th September.

Who is the course for?
The course is attended by all types of senior professionals in food production, manufacturing, processing, consulting and hygiene firms, as well as representatives from industry associations and regulatory bodies. Lawyers in private practice law firms also attend (fulfil up to 100 per cent of your annual CPD requirements).

Do I need to have a law degree?
No. The standard entry requirements for the course are a UK university undergraduate degree, a relevant professional qualification or an equivalent international qualification which indicates an ability to study at the postgraduate level. Whilst some background knowledge of law is useful, a degree in law is not essential.

Why study by distance learning?
Increasingly we all face more pressures at work and finding the time to attend courses can be difficult with well-meant plans often put aside indefinitely. Distance learning gives the opportunity to study for a recognised UK university qualification while remaining in full-time employment. Students set the pace at which they learn, deciding when, where and how long to study for.

Why study with DMU?
The Department of Law is one of the two constituent Departments of Leicester De Montfort Law School. The Department enjoys a quality rating nationally for its high standards of achievement in legal education across its teaching, research, publishing and related activities. It operates full and part time Honours Law Degree courses and contributes to a wide range of inter-disciplinary degree programmes.

The Department is host to a lively academic community, which is justly proud of its reputation. The team of subject specialists involved with the Masters Programme includes authors of some of the leading texts in Food Law. Since September 2009 the Law School has been housed in a new £35 million state of the art building, offering leading edge facilities for staff and students.
