This is a four year programme with a year abroad in the third year. The Law with European Legal Systems degree from University of East Anglia can be tailored to your interests, including the study of French or Spanish.

If you do not have a foreign language you can study at one of our partner law faculties across Europe where law modules are taught in English. These modules will allow you to develop your understanding of European and International Law. We currently have links with universities in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Slovakia and Slovenia.

If you have previously studied French at A level (or equivalent), you can take French language tuition throughout the first and second year. You can then study at one of our partner French law faculties. You can choose to study fully in French, or combine modules offered in English with some in French.

If you have previously studied Spanish at A Level you can take Spanish language tuition and study at one of our partner Spanish law faculties. You can choose to study fully in Spanish, or combine modules offered in English with some in Spanish.

You will start your degree by establishing the building blocks of legal knowledge. At the same time, you will begin to cultivate important skills, such as reasoning, research and writing, formulating convincing arguments, negotiating and working as part of a team.

The point of legal study is not simply to memorise the law, but to be able to engage with it skillfully. As such, many of the skills you will develop are transferrable and will be valuable to you within or beyond a career in law.

In your second and fourth years you will tailor your degree by choosing modules that suit your interests. Our semesterised modular system means that core modules are a semester long, not year long, allowing you to study more broadly.

You will be free to choose two optional modules in your second year and six in your fourth year (with slightly fewer if you are taking language tuition). You will have a wide choice of options including Criminology, Family Law, Law and Business, British Human Rights Law, Company Law, Competition Law, Crime and Sentencing, Intellectual Property Law, Internet Law, International Humanitarian Law and Media Law.

Career destinations related to your degree include:

  • Legal Practice (solicitor, barrister, paralegal)
  • Other law related careers (NGOs, international organisations, in-house compliance, legal researchers, police)
  • Public Sector (Civil Service Fast Stream, local government, politics, education)
  • Financial Services (tax, banking, insurance, investment, accountancy)
  • Management and human resources (typically through graduate recruitment schemes)
  • Media / journalism
