Study Law with International Relations at Canterbury Christ Church University and join a challenging, vibrant and friendly community, led by an experienced team of academics, practitioners, solicitors, barristers and international lawyers.


The legal profession is well respected and a career in this field is considered by many to be highly prestigious. It therefore requires professionals with excellent academic ability and a strong work ethic.

By studying Law with International Relations at Canterbury Christ Church University, you can gain a sound understanding of law while studying aspects of international relations that will enable you to progress to lawyers training or a career in the field of international relations.

You'll be challenged to develop both academically and professionally through a combination of theoretical learning and practical skills development. You'll learn in a supportive, collaborative and friendly community environment.

During the course, you'll develop a critical understanding of the main principles, themes and methods of law so that you:

  • Become a conscious legal professional.
  • Acquire and apply your critical mind to the evaluation and appreciation of contemporary socio-legal issues.
  • Experience practical learning as part of the legal education experience.

Throughout the course, you'll develop transferable skills that will be essential as you embark on a professional career. You'll build your confidence and abilities in communication, research, evaluation, critical judgement, time management, team working, and meeting tight deadlines. We'll also support you with specialist training in areas such as writing and advocacy skills, and we will help to prepare you for the next steps in your career, for example by doing one-to-one mock interview sessions.
