Dear Kat Ammann,

Before we can proceed to answer your request, we need some clarification from you. The vast majority of M1* courses are postgraduate, and therefore not classified using First, 2:1, 2:2 etc.

Can you confirm whether you are looking for information about Law undergraduate courses only? Or would you also like postgraduate results broken down by Distinction, Merit, Pass, etc.

Once we receive this clarification, we will be able to continue working on your request.

Yours sincerely,

Kerry Johnson
Governance Administrator (Council Secretariat)
