Explore political concepts, systems and communications on a Qualifying Law Degree which offers exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister. 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. Serving as the first stage in your legal training, the LLB will enable you to complete the academic stage of solicitor or barrister training, studying all the key legal principles, doctrines and legal institutions that constitute the foundations of legal knowledge. You will also gain the additional advantage of a specialism in politics, political analysis and strategic political communications, further enhancing your understanding of the role and application of the law. Our campus-based Pro-Bono Law Clinic provides you with practical experience in delivering legal advice under the supervision of solicitors or barristers. You will also be able to join the student Law Society, get involved in competitions, and attend networking events both on and off campus.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
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.
