Bournemouth University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and the Bar Standards Board, this all-encompassing law course will prepare you for work in the law profession, as well as offer you lots of practical experiences by attending court, taking part in Moot Courts and Moot Show Trials and attending guest lectures. We know it’s difficult to decide which area of law you’d like to focus on when you’re just setting out on your training, which is why we offer three law pathways, all of which share a common first semester. This means that you don’t need to make any major decisions about which branch of law you’d like to specialise in until you’ve spent a term studying the subject area and have a better grasp of what each field entails. As well as LLB (Hons) Law, we offer LLB (Hons) Law with Politics and LLB (Hons) Law, Media & Creative Industries. As well as what you’ll learn in your lectures and seminars you’ll also have the opportunity to put knowledge into practice during a 30-week work placement, taken between your second and final year. Furthermore, there will be opportunities for you to join the BU Law Society and to contribute to the BU Law Review, an academic publication designed to encourage you to further your interests relating to the law and to publish your excellent research in the area. 95% of our students are working or studying 6 months after graduating, of which 85% are in a professional/managerial role (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education).
This course offers the following subject options:
- Entertainment Law
- Law with Politics
You will study a range of subject areas including Legal Skills & Systems; Law of Obligations; Constitutional & EU Law; Criminal Law; Property Law as well as choosing option units depending on which pathway you decide to study.
