About

You can also specialise in a range of subjects including family law, media and entertainment law, company law and human rights, depending on your area of interest. Throughout your degree you will learn how to argue a case effectively in court, interview clients and negotiate agreements, benefiting from simulated trials and tribunals in our Moot Court Room. Alongside this, the Make It business experiences are designed to ensure that you stand out from the crowd when you graduate.

Make It international: watch professionals at work. Strasbourg is the home to the most prestigious legal and human rights institutions in the world. You could witness a live case being argued and there’ll be a rare opportunity to question international lawyers and watch them at work. Having global exposure will help you stand out in the job market, no matter whether you plan on having an international career or not. For this vital reason, the trip is included in the cost of your fees.

Make It real: learn from people who have been there and done it. Solicitors in private practice, barristers, judges and in-house lawyers from large organisations such as HSBC and NATO will deliver inspiring lectures and give you real insight. You can also visit the Supreme Court, Inns of Court, Parliament and city law firms. Real world application is embedded throughout your degree and you can take part in simulated trials and tribunals as well as mooting competitions. The School of Law Law also runs a Law clinic where students have the opportunity to shadow a solicitor offering legal advice. All focused on perfectly preparing you for when you graduate.

Make It happen: grow into a career-ready graduate. Final year students get to work in our Law Clinic, giving advice to real clients on contract law, consumer law or employment law. There are also opportunities to volunteer at the Law Centre or the Citizens Advice Bureau and practise your skills with genuine clients. This will give you the confidence to put your learning into practice and gain essential contacts. Students have gone on to work for leading law firms across Bristol, Birmingham and London. You will also have the chance to do an internship within legal and business environments. All of this is designed to give you the skills and the CV to pursue your chosen career.

                          • You can also apply for a student maintenance loan to help towards your living costs up to £8,200 if you live away from home to study and up to £6,904 if you stay at home.
                          • Additional non-repayable grants may be available for students with dependents and for students with disabilities.
                          • Living cost loans and grants will be paid to students in three equal instalments over the academic year – one at the beginning of each term.
                          • You will only start to repay the loan after you have graduated and are in employment and earning over £21,000. You will repay 9% of your income above £21,000. For example if you earn £25,000 you would repay £30 a month. (i.e. 9% of £4,000/12 months).
