What will I learn?
Our Law degree enables you to develop an in-depth understanding of the technical and doctrinal aspects of the law, and a critical awareness of the role law can play in modern society. Warwick Law School is one of the leading law schools in the UK, and is renowned for its high quality teaching and research. The School emphasises a contextual approach to, and international and comparative perspectives on, the study of law.
As well as studying legal judgments and statutes, you will gain valuable insights into the impact of economic, cultural and political change on law, and consider how law affects life beyond the courtroom and the lawyer’s office. Our graduates emerge with sought-after legal, research, writing and independent learning skills, and their comprehensive understanding of the law enables them to engage actively with policy debates. They also possess excellent presentation skills, gained through interactive and group-based learning.
Core modules in your first year provide a thorough grounding in core legal skills. From your second year you can choose from optional modules tailored to your academic interests, some of which can exempt you from professional law examinations. Law options available to current students include: International Criminal Law; Comparative Human Rights; Refugee and Asylum Law; Shakespeare and the Law; and Law, Seas and Eco-Systems. You can also take modules from other departments to reinforce your interdisciplinary skills. In your final year, you may submit a dissertation in place of a full or half-module.
Our four-year programme has a similar structure to our three-year course, but enables you to take a larger number of modules and diversify your studies.
