This law degree allows you to learn about the law, both in the sense of 'thinking like a lawyer' and studying law as a social institution. As a law student you will gain expertise in analysis, research, logical argument and more as you develop an understanding of key topics within law and the legal sector.

In addition to areas such as contract law, international law and criminal law, you'll examine the broader context of the law and its relationship with society. We offer a wide range of optional modules, enabling you to develop your interests in specialist legal areas such as company or employment law, human rights law, environmental law and family law. You could also explore topics in criminal justice and criminology, such as policing or youth crime.

Throughout the course, you'll gain diverse skills that will be valuable to you as a citizen, as well as in your professional career - whether you choose to enter the legal profession or not. Study abroad is not automatically available on this programme, however it is available on our LLB Law with European Legal Studies and LLB Law with International Legal Studies programmes. If you study LLB Law, at the end of year two you may be able to transfer onto one of the two programmes mentioned, subject to academic performance and available places on the study abroad programme.

Entry Requirements For This Course

A-level: AAA excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking.

Two of your A-levels must be in traditional academic subjects. Please see our accepted A-level subjects document to check your subjects.

If your choice of A-level subjects has been constrained by factors outside your control (such as if your school or college did not offer certain subjects), please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office to discuss your application.

When an applicant is taking the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) this can be considered alongside A-levels and may attract an alternative offer in addition to the standard offer. If you are taking A-levels, this would be AAB at A-level and grade A in the EPQ.

GCSE: We expect applicants to have a substantial number of GCSE passes at a high standard. Applicants from countries where English is not the first language will also need a grade 5/6 (B) in GCSE English language, or another appropriate English language qualification, see below.
