Course summary

This degree involves comprehensive study of key legal principles, doctrines, civil and criminal justice institutions and systems. At the heart of the course is the idea that future lawyers will need to have knowledge of national, European and international laws and institutions. You will be expected to take an interest in general legal issues and to be able to comment on developments in the law, including new case law and legislation, based on your analysis of commentary in appropriate media. You will join a programme which serves as the first stage in your legal training, and gain exemptions from the academic stage of solicitor or barrister training, while our campus-based Pro-Bono Law Clinic provides you with practical experience in delivering legal advice.

Assessment method

Assessment is designed to ensure that you acquire a wide range of skills, particularly those required by future employers. You will write case reports and essays, critically analyse legal documents, give oral presentations, defend and advise clients and take exams. Exams usually account for more than half of the marks for any module though a small number of modules are assessed by coursework only. You will always be given feedback on all your work so that you will learn from the experience.
