University of Essex has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our Law department is ranked among the top 200 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017). You receive a rigorous academic training in the discipline of law. You develop a critical awareness of the nature of law within its social, political and economic contexts, and see each subject area as part of an integrated whole. We emphasise an awareness of the place of the law of England and Wales in its European and international frameworks. This allows you to develop critical, analytical, research, problem solving and transferrable skills. You also acquire the ability to construct a logical argument and to communicate that argument clearly, both orally and in writing, as well as to consider, evaluate and respond to alternative and, possibly, conflicting points of view.
