Course summary

Overview Join a top Law School that offers an intimate and engaging, student-focused law degree experience. Gain the skills and confidence you need to excel within or beyond the legal profession through this Law and American Law degree with a year abroad in America. UEA Law School is housed in historic Earlham Hall. You will join a welcoming and collegiate community of legal scholars and students. You will be taught by dedicated lecturers with expertise in a range of legal fields and will be part of a vibrant student body with an active law society. About This Course The LLB (Hons) in Law with American Law offers an exciting opportunity to combine a law degree with a broader educational and cultural experience through a year abroad at one of our partner law schools in the US. Your studies at UEA combine the seven foundation subjects of a traditional law degree with a wealth of module options which allow you to tailor your degree around the subjects that interest you and stimulate your curiosity. Thanks to the UEA Law School’s semesterised approach to teaching, each of our modules are taught in one semester, allowing you plenty of choice. Throughout the course, you will develop important skills, such as research, writing and constructing a reasoned argument. The point of legal study is not simply to memorise the law, but to be able to engage with it skillfully. As such, many of the skills you will acquire are transferrable and will be valuable in your chosen career path. You will be given guidance on your work and constructive feedback to help you improve. You will have an Academic Adviser to make sure you get the most from your studies and help you reach your full potential. You will also have many opportunities to build your skills, confidence and professional CV through extra-curricular activities and the Law School’s unique employability programme. You could, for example, complete an internship at a law firm, or you could ‘marshal’, spending a day on the bench with a judge during a trial. You could benefit from the alumni mentoring scheme, where Law School graduates offer career mentoring to individual students. Our many events with law firms, barrister chambers and alumni create great opportunities for finding out about the options for when you graduate. You could make a difference in the local community, working for the public good (pro bono) with the UEA Law Clinic. Our students have recovered millions of pounds for welfare benefits claimants wrongly denied payments. We have won the national LawWorks Best Partnership in Pro Bono award no fewer than four times. You can also have fun, build your profile and hone valuable skills by joining in Law Society activities. As well as social events, these include beginner and advanced mooting contests where a point of law is debated in a simulated court hearing. Finals are judged by barristers or judges. The Law Society also holds negotiation, client interviewing, mediation and legal triathlon competitions, the finals of which have been hosted by law firms. In 2016 the UEA Law Society won LawCareers.Net award for ‘Best Pro Bono’ activities and in 2019 the award as the best law society for Commercial Awareness.
