This course is specially designed for European and International students who do not speak English as a first language and who wish to gain further technical linguistic expertise in the legal context whilst undertaking a Qualifying Law Degree. English is the international language of trade, business and the law and this course will enable you to use your legal knowledge in a global context. The course aims to develop your communication in professional and legal English to deal with the challenges of international business and law. On graduation, you will be able to meet the high standards that modern business and legal clients expect. The legal tuition is through the medium of English including specialised and dedicated courses aimed at raising the understanding and usage of English to the necessary professional level. The English tuition will help you to be able to interpret legal rules and employ techniques of legal reasoning in effective English.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive – often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into. If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification and many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion – about one in 17 last year– of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Psychology, business and social studies are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
English is one of the most popular degree subjects and in 2012, more than 12,000 students graduated with English degrees. As good communication is so important to modern business, you can find English graduates in all parts of the economy, although obviously, you can't expect to get a job as a doctor or nuclear physicist. There isn't a lot of difference in terms of outcomes between taking English language or English literature, so choose the one that suits you and don't worry about whether one is more likely to get you the job you want than the other. About one in five English graduates went into further study last year, and apart from further degrees in English, graduates were also likely to go onto teaching, law or publishing. All in all it's a flexible option – some even changed career direction entirely and took postgraduate courses in subjects like nursing or maths.
