Course summary

This two-year course is designed for those who already have an undergraduate degree in a non-law subject who wish to convert to a career in law. It provides you with the opportunity to learn about the law, both in the traditional sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and in the broader sense of law as a social institution. You will gain expertise in analysis, research, logical argument and more as you develop an understanding of key topics within law and the legal sector. The degree gives you an in-depth grounding that will enable you to progress to the vocational stage of legal education, should you wish to qualify as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. It’s also recognised in several other jurisdictions. You’ll cover the seven foundations of legal knowledge and develop your legal research skills. A wide range of optional modules will also enable you to follow your interests in specialist legal areas. You’ll gain diverse skills that will be invaluable to you as a global citizen, as well as in your professional career – whether you choose to enter the legal profession or not.
