Are you ready to make your mark? Our academically challenging, qualifying law degree will prepare you for a career in the legal profession. With strong public and private sector connections, and a clear focus on developing skills in the workplace, we’ll ground you in the fundamentals of law – so you can set your sights high. From national competitions to High Court appeals and community projects – our students win acclaim. Get ahead with a skills-focused, qualifying law degree designed to help you stand out with employers, whatever your career goals. Learn your practice while making a real difference to real clients, with work experience placements open to all in year 2 and 3 students supported by our well-connected Law Clinic. Benefit from working with a faculty of highly qualified law and criminal justice staff who provide a great mix of research-informed and practice-led teaching. Tailor your degree to match your career aspirations by studying LLB Law in conjunction with Business or Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies. Choose the subjects that most interest you from a range of elective modules, so you can shape your degree and prepare for a career inside or outside the legal sector. Take part in a range of competitions and social activities – as well as networking with high-profile guest speakers and prospective employers – as a member of our highly successful, student-run Student Law Society. Deepen your understanding and insight through a sophisticated array of online resources. Pursue your ambition to become a solicitor or barrister, or a range of other professions linked to law.
In your first year, you’ll learn about the core theories, principles and processes of the law, introducing you to how it’s studied and practised. You’ll be able to join the Student Law Society and take part in mooting, debating, negotiation and advocacy competitions. We’ve structured the curriculum so that alongside studying legal systems, contract, constitutional and administrative law (fulfilling the requirements of professional bodies), you’ll also start to develop the kind of critical thinking and self-reflective skills that will equip you for your chosen career. In your second year, you’ll focus on real-life scenarios and develop practical skills in areas such as negotiation and advocacy. You’ll study law of tort, land and EU law in depth and begin to tailor your degree to your specific interests by choosing from modules in company, environmental, media, commercial and consumer law. Unlike most other law degrees, where you have to wait until your final year, you’ll also start gaining hands-on experience through work-based studies and a compulsory skills module. In your final year, you'll complete the core subjects with criminal law and equity and trusts. You can choose to study electives such as family, employment and immigration law. You’ll be able to demonstrate your research skills with a dissertation on a legal issue that inspires you, or undertake a project based on your work experience within the Law Clinic. The modules shown for this course or programme are those being studied by current students, or expected new modules. Modules are subject to change depending on year of entry.
