Winchester has been central to the English legal system for at least 1,000 years. Choose to study here and you will be following in a long, historic tradition. It was King Alfred who established English law-making and its ideology as a distinctive system which would have a major influence on the common law of later medieval England. Even today, The Domesday Book, a cornerstone legal document compiled in Winchester, is still valid as evidence of title to land.
Law continues to provide the framework for modern society, impacting on all our lives. As a law student at Winchester you build a thorough knowledge of previous case law to enable you to explore questions at the core of the world we live in. From the protection of life and liberty to international relationships, law provides the mechanism for change employed by governments around the world.
Studying for a law degree with us is an intellectually stimulating and thought-provoking experience. The programme encourages you to develop an enquiring and critical attitude to law, learn to think logically and communicate clearly. You become proficient in vital skills such as legal research, negotiation and mooting - presenting a legal argument to defeat an opponent in court. Mooting brings law alive and you may find yourself discussing a wide range of topics from discrimination in the workplace to third-party rights when downloading music from the internet.
These skills are invaluable as teaching techniques to help develop successful law graduates. The emphasis on skills-based learning is a core component of the programme and forms a key element in the assessment pattern.
This programme is ideal if you are interested in becoming a practising solicitor or barrister. It also suits those seeking a flexible qualification with a solid foundation in law that leads to a wide-range of careers in both the public and private sectors.
If you intend to qualify as a solicitor or barrister, you have to complete an academic stage of training before going on to a vocational stage. All law degrees recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council (known as Qualifying Law Degrees) involve the study of seven key subjects - the ‘Foundations of Legal Knowledge’. This LLB is a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board.
