This law degree combines a balanced and stimulating legal education with practical skills and work-based learning. You will gain knowledge of the law and its application in the real world, learn how to analyse and solve problems, and be able to present logical, reasoned arguments. This emphasis on skills means you’ll be ready for the challenges of any career. This course is recognised as a qualifying law degree (QLD) for professional purposes in the UK.
