Undergraduate Law courses:
Our fully qualifying Law degree means you'll complete the first stage of training for your career as a barrister or solicitor. You'll cover the full range of law subjects required for training as a barrister or solicitor, including The English Legal System, Public Law, Contract Law and Criminal Law. You'll also open doors to a wide range of legal careers, thanks to our focus on giving you an all-round legal education.
You'll learn about the structure and nature of the legal system of England and Wales, which includes the criminal justice system. We'll give you an overview of the processes through which criminal behaviour is addressed – from profiling and arrest, to sentencing and rehabilitation – as well as exploring important related aspects, such as family law and comparative law.
Professional legal experience is at the heart of our Law degrees. We're one of only a few UK universities to include professional work placements with every degree and you'll complete placements during each year of your degree. These will give you excellent opportunities to build your portfolio of legal experience, without having to take a sandwich year out.
