Subject

Law

Covering the foundations of English law, this qualifying law degree offers an opportunity to specialise in areas according to interests and future career plans. In year two, students may apply to transfer to a four-year degree course, which incorporate a year abroad studying the law of that country. Students can choose between America, Australia, Canada, Europe, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Singapore. However, this is highly competitive and transfer should not be assumed. For those intending a legal career, the grounding in different legal systems will prove very attractive to employers, including leading international law firms.

Modules

In year one, you will take core modules in the Law of Contract, Public Law, and Understanding Law, as well as optional modules from outside the school. Second-year studies incorporate further modules in Criminal Law, Foundations of Tort and Land Law, as well as optional law modules and/or modules from outside the school. In year three, you will take the final core modules in the Law of Trusts and the Law of the European Union, as well as optional law modules and/or modules from outside the school. If selected to transfer to one of our four-year degrees, you will spend your third year at a partner law school in another country. After this, you will return to Nottingham to complete your final year of study.

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.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
