Students will study the key legal topics and related skills that are critical for the modern law student. The students study nine modules per year.

The course will deliver an insight into critical legal topics and develop knowledge and understanding of key concepts in a practical environment.

This course will assist students to gain employment within the wider legal sector (and other commercial/business fields) and also complete the academic stage of training for those who wish to progress to become solicitors or barristers or form the foundation for those who wish to study for Masters degrees.
