Subject

Law

Law at Brunel is ranked 8th in London (The Complete University Guide 2018)

Law is not a subject you can take or leave. Students come to our friendly Brunel Law School with a passion. They leave with their passion focused into a degree that is recognised and valued around the world.
Law has an impact on every aspect of society. Consumers’ rights, international and cyber commerce, taxation, housing, family protection and human rights are all firmly rooted in international and domestic law. The study of law offers exciting specialisations that range from more established subjects such as taxation or human rights to emerging fields like internet commerce. Brunel Law School is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, the primary professional body within arbitration, as a course provider for our Arbitration and Commercial Law LLB. This means that when you graduate from the course you’ll be eligible to become a member of the institute. Unlike other graduates, you will not be required to complete further courses to qualify, saving you up to £3,000 in additional course fees.
We have excellent links with criminal law practitioners, experienced solicitors and barristers and you’ll benefit from our relationships with dynamic law firms and the Inns of Court. If you undertake a placement, we can support you in finding the place that is right for you. Brunel pioneered industrial placements for law in the UK and our high-quality placements continue to provide valuable contacts for securing traineeships.
Special features
The degree gives you full exemption from Part 1 of the Professional Examinations for the Law Society and Bar Council.

Brunel Law School is one of only a few law schools to have a full moot court where you can practice your skills for court. It comes complete with judge’s bench, seating for counsel and court clerks, a gallery for up to 50 other participants, a deliberation room for judges and full audio-visual facilities. Our courses are offered as either three or four-year programmes depending on whether you choose the professional placement option. All three degrees study the same modules in Years 1 and 2, covering the essential legal knowledge. In Year 3, you’ll decide how you’d like to specialise. All courses include an independent research project in Year 3.

Opt for a sandwich course and you’ll spend a year on industrial placement gaining invaluable experience in the working world. Our students have undertaken placements with solicitors’ firms, barristers’ chambers and local authority offices. To help you prepare for work, we offer short courses in client interviewing, fraud examination and advocacy.
You’ll have the chance to carry out pro bono work, developing your skills in legal research and client interaction.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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 - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — 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 of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching 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.
