English and European Law (4 years) at Queen Mary University of London - UCAS

Course summary

Gain a global perspective and study law at one of our prestigious European partner universities. Our LLB in English and European Law gives you the chance to experience life in a European country, study law in a different jurisdiction, and diversify your legal portfolio beyond the UK. This four-year degree follows the same module structure as the traditional Law LLB, with an additional year studying abroad. We have well-established relationships with universities throughout the European Union, including Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Italy, where tuition is in English; and in France, Germany and Spain, where tuition is in the native language. In your first year you’ll study the core principles of law and learn the skills you need to read and apply legal documents, such as Acts of Parliament, EU legislation and case reports. Your second and final years will allow you to choose from a broad range of specialist fields – such as human rights law, criminology, intellectual property and medical negligence. You can be confident of an enriching and exciting experience wherever you go, and your time spent abroad will give you a solid understanding of a European legal system and expand your general legal knowledge - aiding your final year of study, which you’ll complete back in London.
