Put an international perspective on your legal studies with this popular Law with International Relations (Hons) combination from University of East London. As a qualifying law degree, it will still exempt you from the academic stage of qualifying as a solicitor or barrister.
Three-quarters of the Law with International Relations (Hons) course, offered by University of East London, focuses on law, so you’ll learn how law is made and administered, gain an understanding of the criminal justice system and study key aspects of the civil and criminal law.
For the international relations part of the course, we’ll give you a solid introduction to the subject in your first year. You’ll then take one international relations module in each of your second and third years.
Your future career
Graduates in Law with International Relations gain skills and knowledge that are high demand from employers across a range of different fields.
Many of the students go on to enjoy successful careers as solicitors after completing their legal studies through the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and obtaining a training contract with a law firm.
Some become barristers, going on to take the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and then obtaining Pupillage in barristers' chambers. This can lead to a tenancy as a self-employed barrister, or you can practise as an employed barrister.
Other students use their legal knowledge and the other skills and qualities they develop at UEL to pursue different careers. Communication skills, such as writing, speaking and presenting, and the ability to analyse and evaluate information are in demand by employers.
Other career options include:
- General management roles in the private or voluntary sectors, e.g. in finance, insurance, media or education
- Teaching or journalism
- Public administration, e.g. in local government housing, planning or legal departments
