Edge Hill University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
At the heart of this course is the idea that future lawyers will need to have knowledge of national, European and international laws and institutions. This degree is primarily for LLB students who also wish to study Politics during their degree. The LLB will enable you to study all the key legal principles, doctrines and legal institutions that constitute the foundations of legal knowledge with the added advantage of a specialism in politics and political analysis. The study of politics and government will enhance your understanding of the role and application of the law.

Assessment is varied and designed to ensure that you acquire a wide range of skills, particularly those required by future employers. Assessment methods include writing case reports and essays, critically analysing legal documents, giving oral presentations, defending and advising clients and taking 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 and develop as a learner.
