Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Essex has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Our course gives you a comprehensive understanding in both law and politics and trains you to be critical, reflective and analytical in these complementary disciplines. You also develop a critical awareness of the nature of law within its social and political contexts. What is the role of the Supreme Court? When do the lines become blurred between law and politics? What are the key factors in political science? All of these questions are profound topics to debate in the legal and political fields.
