It also covers elements of the academic training needed to become a barrister. Our Law degree can also open doors to a wide range of legal careers, thanks to our focus on giving you an all-round legal education. We keep our class sizes much smaller than other universities, allowing us to give you high levels of personal student support. We’re also one of only a few UK universities to include professional work placements with every undergraduate degree, so you’ll graduate with professional experience without having to take a sandwich year. In addition to the professional placements, we offer opportunities for pro bono activity so you can build an invaluable portfolio of legal experience during your studies. In your final year, you can explore specialist areas of the law such as Company Law, Family Law or Employment Law. You can also study a selection of non-law option subjects offering the opportunity for you to expand your law study into areas such as Business; Journalism; Children, Young People and Families; Criminology and Sociology; and Politics.

In your final year an optional Professional Learning through Work module gives you the chance to work on a live brief from a legal employer.
