Take your first step towards a career in law. Practise offering real legal advice in our Law Clinic and courtroom. Gain exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister on this Qualifying Law Degree. Unlock the civil and criminal justice institutions and systems. Our law degree gives you a comprehensive overview of the key legal principles you’ll need to work in the legal profession. Using media commentary and theory, you’ll be able to form opinions on legal developments including new case law and legislation. Join the student Law Society and you’ll be able to take part in competitions and attend networking events both on and off campus to meet with future peers. Our Pro-Bono Law Clinic gives you a chance to put your knowledge into practice. Supervised by qualified members of lecturing staff and local legal practitioners, you’ll deliver legal advice to the community. If that’s not enough hands-on experience for you, there will also be opportunities to go on educational visits to important legal institutions. Past and present law students have visited courts including the Old Bailey, the Supreme Court and Parliament in London, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and the European Parliament and European Commission in Brussels. And our on-campus courtroom is the perfect place to flex your problem-solving skills and develop your legal analysis and mooting skills as you prepare for, and act out, legal scenarios in a true-to-life courtroom setting.
