European Law and Politics Middlesex University

Undergraduate

Overview
Studying an LLB at Middlesex you will gain the legal skills and abilities to complete the academic stage of training, and with your qualification, embark on the next stage of vocational training to become a fully qualified solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. You will develop a specialist understanding of the important and sometimes controversial role played by the European Union and the Council of Europe.

Why study LLB European Law and Politics at Middlesex University?
An LLB European Law and Politics from Middlesex is recognised by the two main legal professional bodies, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (solicitors) and the Bar Standards Board (barristers) as a Qualifying Law Degree that satisfies the first (or ‘academic’) stage of professional legal education and training. It additionally develops your understanding of the ethical, social, political, economic, cultural and historical contexts within which the law operates, as well as providing skills of legal analysis and an ability to evaluate legal systems and processes.

You will study the fundamental doctrines and principles which underpin the law of England and Wales and will gain specialist knowledge and understanding of European Law and Politics and the complexities therein, developing skills and equipping you with expertise to move towards professional and related practice in this area.

The course further integrates work placements within the programme and extra-curricular to the programme. You will benefit from a vibrant clinical legal education initiative that places law students with professional legal bodies and practitioners in order to combine hands-on work experience with the formal requirements of legal academic education. They will support you in developing specialist skills such as mooting and mediation and you will have the opportunity to take part in formal mooting and mediation competitions nationally and internationally. Our LLB graduates are experienced and skilled in the practicalities of everyday professional practice, indispensable for both the legal and non-legal graduate workplace.
