University of Hull has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This law degree gives you extensive knowledge of the political system from which our laws emerge – it's a strong foundation to build a career on.
You’ll learn to think like a lawyer, undertake legal research and apply your knowledge of legal and political science to broad social problems and challenges. You'll get to grips with the concept of law, legal phenomena and legal systems. And you'll examine political theory and key advances in human security and welfare.
99% of our law students are in work or further study six months after graduating (UK domicile full-time first degree leavers; Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey for the academic year 2016/17, published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency 2018)
