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.
