Law at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

This course introduces you to the foundational subjects you need in order to develop a critical understanding of modern English law. You'll also gain a practical understanding of how the law works and evolves within society, equipping you with a valuable skillset for a future career in law. Cultivate your critical understanding of modern English law, how it works in our society, how it develops over time, and how the practice of law can change people’s lives. From the foundations of legal knowledge in your first year, you’ll build this degree around your passions and career aspirations in years two and three – choosing from modules like international law, human rights, or criminal law and evidence. With law at Sheffield, you have the option to study your third year abroad in one of our many partner universities, for an insight into another legal system. And you can gain real-world experience right here, with Sheffield’s pro bono schemes. The spine of this degree is the Core Legal and Study Skills module, which runs through all three years and introduces you to mooting, employability workshops and study skills sessions. Because we want you to build confidence in these areas, this module isn’t part of your final grade. Whatever way you customise this degree, you’ll ultimately graduate with the expert knowledge and skills you need to enter the legal profession. Why study this course?

Regulations around qualifying for barristers and solicitors have changed recently.
