We are ranked 1st in London for student satisfaction in Law (NSS 2021).
The best preparation for the legal profession is to think like a lawyer from day one. Our practice-based approach means you’ll learn to understand the law in the context of everyday life and legal practice and apply your learning in a number of ways.
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 the law into action through our pro bono activities at the Law Clinic and the Citizens' Advice Bureau and have the opportunity to go on work placements.
From the start, you will be encouraged to engage with legal issues and reflect on what you learn as an integral part of your experience. A high proportion of your time will be spent working face to face with tutors and developing your understanding of legal issues, particularly the core skills and competencies legal practitioners are expected to have.
You will develop an understanding of the different areas of law-making and legal practice by visiting the historic courts of central London. This year, students have observed cases in the Supreme Court, visited other courts and tribunals as part of the Law in Practice module, and are also visiting the Houses of Parliament.
Modules currently available include Legal Systems, Ethics and Skills, which covers the structure and function of the English legal system; Public Law and Human Rights, which explores civil liberties and human rights; and our Law in Practice modules in year one, focusing on legal communication, and in year two, on business and commercial awareness.
Our dedicated Law Careers Advisor has established links with graduate recruiters and can give you ideas and tips to help you gain a good graduate job. Together, you will map out your aptitudes and create a career plan. We also provide personalised sessions in CV and application writing, presentations, mock interviews and commercial-awareness training, as well as giving you opportunities to develop your networking skills.
Our Law degree is ranked 1st in the UK for student satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2022).
This course offers all students the option of a one-year paid work placement, to boost their employability even further. If you choose this route, you will take the placement following year two of your course, and then return to complete your degree.
