The Law (Senior Status) course offered by the University of Essex gives you exemption from the academic stage of training for the legal profession, allowing you to proceed to the Bar Professional Training Course or the Legal Practice Course.
At Essex we teach the law that matters, with a concern for the demands of justice and commerce. We combine a rigorous legal training with opportunities for developing your practical expertise, and you learn to analyse the law of England and Wales in relation to its European and international frameworks and to apply it in practice.
As a law student, not only will you learn legal rules, but you will also consider the function of law in society, the philosophy of law, policy issues and law reform. You cover all the key areas of law including:
- Property law, land law, equity and trusts
- Law of the European Union
- Contract law and tort law
- Criminal law
- Public law
From the start of your course, we challenge you to think deeply, broadly and strategically about career paths. Over the first two years, alongside law subjects, you will take a career management module designed to help you identify personal strengths and goals, understand what employers (both within and outside law) are looking for and enhance your employability profile.
We also hold an annual law fair, attended by law firms and vocational qualification providers. Our graduates pursue careers in the law and in a wide range of other sectors including business and commerce, accountancy, insurance, banking, central and local government, academia, teaching, social work and the police force.
