University of Suffolk has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
This course allows you to benefit from a firm grounding in law while taking modules in politics. You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the contexts in which political and legal institutions function, as well as the ability to conduct both legal and political analysis of current problems and issues. We draw on a range of perspectives in our teaching, combining the finest traditions of legal education and political science. You will notice a substantial change in your confidence and ability to engage with topical issues and current affairs, including international relations. If you wish to pursue a career in legal practice after graduation, this course is designed to meet the requirements for completion of the academic stage of legal training as determined by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority.* You may also seek exemptions from aspects of the CILEX programme. During a period of profound and fast-moving political change, a combined law degree with politics will give you an additional edge to lead and succeed in a rapidly changing world.
- The Solicitors Regulation Authority is implementing additional qualifying requirements for solicitors with effect from 2019.
