Subject

Law

The best preparation for the legal profession is to think like a lawyer from day one. Our practice-based learning approach focuses on understanding the law in the context of everyday life and legal practice, and applying your learning using a number of approaches, including problem-based learning.

This law degree has been designed by experienced academics and practitioners, with input from our internationally-renowned Crucible Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice. It is designed specifically to focus on your career development. Throughout your degree, you will work with practitioners from the legal sector. You will gain the practical experience of putting law into action through our pro bono activities with the Citizens Advice Bureau and have the opportunity to obtain work placements.

You will be encouraged to engage from the start of the course with legal issues and reflect on what you learn as an integral part of your academic experience. A high proportion of your time will be spent working face to face with tutors, developing your understanding of legal issues and particularly the core skills and competencies that legal practitioners are expected to have.

You will develop an understanding of the different areas of law making and legal practice by visiting the historic courts of central London. This year students have observed cases in the Supreme Court, visited other courts and tribunals as part of the Law in Practice module and are visiting the Houses of Parliament.

Modules currently available include ‘Legal Systems, Ethics, and Skills’, which covers the structure and function of the English legal system, ‘Public Law and Human Rights’ which explores civil liberties and human rights in the context of Human Rights, and our Law in Practice modules in Year 1, focusing on legal communication’ and in Year 2 on business and commercial awareness.

Our dedicated Law Careers Advisor has established links with graduate recruiters and can give you the ideas and tips to help you gain a good graduate job. She will support you to map out your aptitudes and create a career plan. We also provide personalised sessions in CV and application writing, presentations, mock-interviews, and commercial-awareness training, as well as also having opportunities to develop your networking skills.

Our students are highly satisfied with their experience on this degree, with the latest national data showing 94% student satisfaction on this course (National Student Survey 2018 results).

Modules

In your first year, you will gain an understanding of the key functions of the English legal system, explore the moral dimension of the practice of law, grasp criminal law and human rights, and learn how to present reasoned and logical arguments. You will also study Law in Practice 1: Legal Communication - an interactive module designed to build your skills and confidence in legal communication, to understand how to apply law in practice and the wider society.

In your second year, Law in Practice 2: Commercial Awareness will introduce you the commercial world and the role of lawyers within it, including the concept of law as a business (how law firms make money) and the role of financial markets. You will build upon your legal skills by studying different types of contract law and will develop an understanding of the law of tort and your ability to apply the law to solve legal problems. You will also learn about the law of business enterprises, explore the legal theories, rules and commercial drivers that influence the practice of law concerning limited companies, partnerships and other business models; other modules taken are EU Law and land law.

In your final year, you will be able to choose from options, including employment law, corporate finance and acquisitions, family law, international human rights, and medical and tax law plus you may have an opportunity to gain practical experience of legal practice in a placement or with the Citizen's Advice Bureau.
