Law (European and International) at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

This course covers the foundational subjects in the Common Law of England and Wales and provides the opportunity to understand European and international legal issues. Develop your critical understanding of the Common Law of England and Wales with an emphasis on the European and international legal contexts. You’ll study the foundations of legal knowledge and the principles of comparative law in your first year to gain a strong grounding in the key areas of law, building on your knowledge in your second year with advanced subjects and international law. In your third year you’ll study abroad at one of our many partner universities across the globe. In your fourth and final year, you’ll return to Sheffield where you can build your degree around your passions and career aspirations – choosing from modules like International Trade Law, Intellectual Property Law and Immigration & Asylum Law. The spine of this degree is the Core Legal and Study Skills module, which runs throughout your studies at Sheffield 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. Alongside your studies you can gain real-world experience right here, with our various pro bono schemes. Whatever way you customise this degree, you’ll ultimately graduate with the knowledge and skills you need to start your career. Why study this course?

  • Study abroad - further develop your knowledge of another legal system through your year abroad in your third year, where you’ll study in English.
  • Foundation for your career - if you plan to be a barrister, our LLB degrees satisfy the 'foundations of legal knowledge' set by the Bar Standards Board. If you plan to be a solicitor, you can also complete your Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) with the University of Law, right here. Regulations around qualifying for barristers and solicitors have changed recently.
  • Real-world experience - do real client work, advise start-ups and small businesses, investigate possible miscarriages of justice and offer advice that can make a positive difference to the people of Sheffield, all through our many pro bono schemes.
