University of Leicester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The hand of the law. The power of politics. Creating societal change often requires law and politics to work together. In this degree, you’ll study public policy in its legal context and gain the skills to work in firms with governmental interests.
In your first year you will study the fundamentals of the legal system and develop your legal skills within the Leicester Law School. The Department of Politics and International Relations will introduce you to the key political systems, such as democracy, freedom, and power, and to key political ideologies, including liberalism, socialism, and environmentalism. In your second and final years, you will build upon this knowledge by studying a number of modules in Law and Politics, as well as pursuing your own interests from our range of optional modules.

Assessment methods include assessed essays and exams.
