Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

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.

Course details

Modules

In year one, you will take core modules in Foundations of Tort, Law of Contract, Public Law, and Understanding Law. Second-year studies incorporate further core modules in Criminal Law, Land Law, and Law of the European Union, as well as optional law modules and/or modules from outside the school. In year three, you will take the final core module in the Law of Trusts, 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 fourth and final year of study.
