Course details

Modules

In your first year you will be introduced to the fundamentals of the legal system and develop your key legal skills. Your politics education will begin with the major political systems and ideologies. In your second year, you continue to build on the core aspects of law while gaining more freedom in your political learning. A range of optional modules are available for you to choose from and pursue the areas of politics that interest you. If you want to, you can spend your third year studying abroad. Please note that a year spent abroad still incurs a tuition fee, but this is much lower than for a normal year at Leicester. See our Fees and Funding section for details. In final year, your degree will conclude with more essential law topics. You will gain even greater flexibility. A wide range of law and politics modules will be available so you can adapt your degree to your particular interests and strengths. For further information please see our website.

Assessment method

Assessment methods are varied. They can include assessed essays/coursework, exams and multiple choice question papers. Professional legal writing - for example, writing a letter of advice to a client - is also built into our curriculum and you will start developing these practical skills from your very first year with us.
