The University of Bristol Law School is a centre for intellectually demanding, research-informed legal education. We aim to produce accomplished, well-rounded, enquiring graduates with a rich, ethically grounded appreciation of law in business and society.

Bristol is also a major centre for the study of modern languages and cultures. On this four-year joint honours course, which leads to a qualifying law degree, you will study French language, linguistics, literature and history to degree level alongside your core units in law. This provides you with a valuable skill set, ideally tailored to the globalised workplace.

You will also have the opportunity to spend your third year at a French university. During this year abroad, you will study units in French law. Visit our Global Opportunities website to find out where you can study in France (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/global-opportunities/go-abroad/). In your final year, you will undertake an extended piece of legal research.

All applicants must sit the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) before the relevant deadline. Details are available on the LNAT website: https://lnat.ac.uk/

Please refer to the Admissions Statement below for further information about LNAT and visit the Law School's frequently asked questions page for further information about the course: http://bristol.ac.uk/law/study/ugdegrees/faq/

All our law courses satisfy the degree requirements laid down by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Please note that the routes to qualification as a solicitor in England and Wales are changing. Based on current information, the changes will likely affect all those commencing their law degrees from September 2021 onwards, if they wish to qualify as a solicitor. The latest information on these changes can be found on the Law School website (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/law/study/ugdegrees/accreditation/) or on the Solicitors Regulation Authority website. There is currently no indication that the Bar Standards Board (BSB), the body that regulates barristers, will change its academic requirements for qualification as a barrister.
