This course allows you to learn about the law, both in the sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and studying law as a social institution from a UK and international perspective.
As a law student you'll study key topics within the legal sector, such as contract law and criminal law, whilst also developing expertise in analysis, research and logical argument. Throughout the course you will gain a strong legal knowledge from both the UK and international perspective, with year three spent living and studying abroad at one of our International partner institutions.
A wide range of optional modules will allow you to pursue your interests in specialist legal areas such as cyberlaw, 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.
