The course

The PgC in Agricultural Law provides a firm basis for specialism for rural professionals such as chartered surveyors, solicitors, accountants and rural business consultants, whether as an introduction or as Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for those with experience. The modules earn CPD points for solicitors and other professionals.

Module options include those providing the necessary legal foundations for practice and covering the all-important areas of land law, agricultural, commercial and residential tenancies, the UK planning system and taxation computation and planning. The options choices enable you to tailor the programme to your own requirements.

How will it benefit me?

Completion of a PgC in Agricultural Law will give students a valuable specialism allowing them to more closely understand and address clients’ needs in the rural environment. The specialist options in Planning, Taxation and Land Law are underpinned by the development of post-graduate level study skills and a more general introduction to law in the Machinery of Government module. The course will aid students' effectiveness in the workplace, or in further studies, in developing their skills in accessing and preparing legal materials and in solving legal problems.

Entry requirements for 2019

An honours degree in a subject related to the course, or a good FdSc/HND pass in a relevant subject area together with related industrial or professional experience of at least two years. In addition, the suitability of candidates for particular programmes may be assessed by interview, considering reports from referees and by evaluating previous experience. 

Careers

Most students who join the course will have qualifications and/or experience in related fields and will be seeking to gain formal qualifications in the specific area of agricultural law, whether to develop study skills and gain a deeper and updated knowledge of these technical areas or, for those new to the subjects, to develop a very marketable enhancement to professional capabilities.

Many Harper Adams students study part-time while employed in relevant work. This means that for some of their modules they are able to use projects at work as part of their assessment.
