We offer a personalised academic experience and will help you become a successful graduate that employers value: a confident, critical thinker, able to adapt to a changing world, and with an ongoing passion for your subject.
The best preparation for the legal profession is to think like a lawyer from day one. Our practice-based learning approach focuses on understanding the law in the context of everyday life and legal practice, and applying your learning using a number of approaches, including problem-based learning.
This law degree has been designed by experienced academics and practitioners, with input from our internationally-renowned Crucible Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice. It is designed specifically to focus on your career development. Throughout your degree, you will work with practitioners from the legal sector. You will gain the practical experience of putting law into action through our pro bono activities with leading law firms and have the opportunity to obtain work placements.
You will be encouraged to engage from the start of the course with legal issues and reflect on what you learn as an integral part of your academic experience. A high proportion of your time will be spent working face to face with tutors, developing your understanding of legal issues and particularly the core skills and competencies that legal practitioners are expected to have.
The course will prepare graduates for a range of legal careers including practising solicitors, barristers, paralegals, academic law or any career which demands critical reasoning skills.
