This Qualifying Law Degree allows you to learn about the law, both in the sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and seeing law as a social institution.

You’ll gain expertise in analysis, research, logical argument and more as you gain an understanding of key topics within law and the legal sector. In addition to areas like contract 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 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 you may be able to transfer onto one of either of two programmes mentioned at the end of year two, subject to academic performance and available places on the study abroad programme.
