If you already have a degree or masters degree in any subject from a UK university or recognised overseas university, you can choose this route to a law degree. This graduate entry law degree will give you the legal knowledge to understand and apply the law, together with skills of legal analysis. Alongside studying the foundation subjects of law such as contract law, public law and the law of trusts it offers the flexibility to tailor your study according to whether you wish to gain a law degree as an academic degree, a degree that prepares you to become a barrister in England and Wales, a barrister or solicitor in Northern Ireland, or progress to take Part 1 of the national Solicitors Qualifying Examination. By the end of the degree, you’ll be prepared with the knowledge and skills needed for a legal career. When combined with what you’ve learnt from your previous degree, this will make you an excellent candidate for any law firm. Key features of the course
- Offers a fast-track to gaining a law degree in just two years
- Covers the seven Foundations of Legal Knowledge.
- Provides specific preparatory courses for part 1 of the national Solicitors Qualifying Examination for those wishing to be a solicitor.
- Offers practical experience through an online law clinic and other online projects
This graduate-entry version of our law degree has two stages. You’ll start by building your knowledge of contract law and public law. You'll also choose two modules from Business and employment law; Evidence law; Family law; and International, environmental and space law; letting you focus on aspects of law that are of particular interest. To complete the degree, your modules will be determined by whether you choose the Academic law degree route, the Solicitors Qualifying Examination route or the Foundations of Legal Knowledge/Northern Ireland route.
