Course summary

Course overview: This course includes a foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation or if you don't have sufficient grades to join Year 1. Law is for everyone. You don’t need to have studied law before, whatever your background, your contribution will be a valuable one. A law degree is a highly regarded qualification. You are trained to think, to question and to challenge. Many students study law to become a legal professional such as legal executive, solicitor or barrister, but a Teesside law degree opens up a wide range of professional roles for you, including the criminal justice field, within probation services, law enforcement and in the third charitable and voluntary sectors. You could also be successful in management, recruitment or human resources. Whether you’re starting a career, developing an existing one or changing direction, a law degree presents many opportunities to you. The law can, and does, change on a daily basis - that's what makes it such a fascinating and vibrant subject to study. As a graduate you’ll be a creative problem solver, and an effective researcher, you interpret, analyse and critique complex information. You’ll have highly developed written and oral communication skills and be able to formulate reasoned arguments and challenge decisions. You gain a valuable suite of skills and attributes, confidence, adaptability and resilience to succeed in your chosen career.
