Subject

Law

Law is not just about learning what the rules are, but about thinking about what they should be. This degree offers a truly modern legal education reflecting the needs and concerns of society in the 21st century. Whether you are planning a career in the legal profession or a career in almost any other field of expertise, this degree will challenge and inspire you.As a Law student you will develop key skills in research, analysis, and legal argument, whilst engaging with the study of law as a socially-relevant and rigorous academic discipline.

The qualifying law degree is recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) for the purposes of satisfying the academic stage of training and isa ccredited by the Bar Standards Board for the purpose of a Qualifying Law Degree.

This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.

Modules

The core Year One and Year Two modules are made up largely of some of the modules that must be studied and passed in order to gain a Qualifying Law Degree, known as the ‘Foundations of Legal Knowledge’. The remaining modules are undertaken to enhance basic study, research skills, and advanced research skills in a social context. In Year Three students may choose from a range of optional subjects based on the research and/or teaching interests of teaching staff. The School offers a wide range of optional modules, full details of which are on our website. The range is sufficiently wide to enable students to specialise in one aspect of law, if they choose, or to mix options from across the curriculum. The modules leaders are generally leading researchers in their field, enabling students to benefit from the latest developments in the law.

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.
