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.
In year one you will take Understanding Law, Public Law, Law of Contract and Foundations of Tort (LLB). BA students also take optional modules from outside the school. In year two you will take Criminal Law (BA students will take Foundations of Tort). LLB students take one or two optional law modules while BA students can take up to one third of their subjects from law option/subsidiary modules. In year three you will take Law of Trusts (BA students will also take Law of the European Union). LLB students will take up to six optional modules while BA students can take up to one half of their subjects from law option/subsidiary modules. If you opt for a four-year degree (a choice made early in your second year), you will be given the opportunity to spend the third year at a partner university in another country. You will return to Nottingham for your fourth year to complete your degree by studying those subjects normally taken in year three.
