Overview

The Law (Hons) programme from University of Wolverhampton aims to provide students with knowledge of the English Legal system, familiarity with its institutions and procedures and a basic understanding of how law fits together and operates in England and Wales and the European Union.

Students will demonstrate progression through their course of study and develop the ability to apply knowledge to legal problems and provide solutions to a wide number of legal issues.

In addition to the designated mandatory subjects for study there will be the opportunity to select options at Levels 5 and 6 as preparation for areas of future employment and/or specialism. The overall aim is that students will be able to act independently in planning and managing tasks. Core and option areas which they have studied and will be able to demonstrate proficiency in the use of IT and technology supported learning. Students will be exposed to practice based learning throughout the degree.

Careers

Many of our graduates go on to become lawyers. However, the diverse nature of the degree also means that law graduates can enter a range of alternative occupations including: Police, Trading Standards, Health and Safety, Personnel, Accountancy, Local Authority, and the Civil Service. Further career options include: banking, finance, insurance or work in public and private sector management.

You may continue your studies by undertaking the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) at the University of Wolverhampton or the Bar Professional Training course, or undertake one of the specialist Master's degrees with us.

Mooting and other legal skills competitions provide the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a lawyer. Also, a purpose-built courtroom gives you a taste of life in a real court with purpose-built legal equipment and state of the art acoustics. There are also regular visits to The Inns of Court and Houses of Parliament as well as career talks from local firms, police, and other relevant organisations.

You will have the opportunity to work on real life cases through our University Legal Advice Centre providing you with invaluable practical experience.

Students can also volunteer as a Wolverhampton Legal Companion. The WLC is a scheme that runs in collaboration with Wolverhampton County Court to help Law, Criminology, Sociology and Social Policy students.
