This is a four-year course including a year of study abroad in a choice of over 75 world-class partner universities across the globe, providing you with an excellent opportunity to gain an insight into another legal system.

You'll then spend your third year studying law, in English, at one of our partner universities overseas. In your fourth year, you can tailor your degree by choosing from a range of optional modules such as International Human Rights Law, Competition Law and International Trade Law. The Core Legal and Study Skills module includes an introduction to mooting, employability workshops and study skills sessions.
