Course summary

Do you want to study law while immersing yourself in French culture? Do you want to gain a global perspective on your studies and enhance your CV? Would you like to put your French language skills to good use? BA Law with French and French Law thoroughly covers the foundations of English law through core modules examining areas including tort, contract, trusts and criminal law. The course is run in partnership with the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures and you will also take core modules to develop your French speaking and writing. You will spend your third year studying in France at a partner law school in Toulon, where you will study the French legal system and develop advanced French language skills, offering you a remarkable educational and cultural experience. You will graduate with specialist knowledge and the transferable skills and confidence you need to stand out to employers as you start your career. Exemptions All our undergraduate law degrees allow exemption from the academic stage of qualification as a Barrister. Graduates wishing to qualify as barristers may proceed directly to the vocational stage of legal training - the Bar Training Course. Students who begin their course in 2022, or thereafter, and who wish to become a solicitor must undertake the Solicitors Qualifying Examination. There are no exemptions conferred on students who have an undergraduate law degree. A number of institutions offer courses preparing students to pass the SQE. Some of these institutions guarantee a place for Nottingham graduates with at least a 2:2 degree.


In year one, you will take core modules in legal theory, contracts, and public law, as well as modules to develop your French speaking and writing. In year two, you will take further core modules covering criminal law, foundations of tort, and land ownership. You will also build on your language skills and compare legal systems as practised in Europe. On this course, you will spend your third year studying abroad in France at a partner law school in Toulon. Teaching will be in French. In year four, you will take the final core modules in the Law of Trusts and (currently) the Law of the European Union and core and optional language modules.
