A Law Honours degree is the gateway to a legal career and our course will build both breadth and depth of legal knowledge. Our School of Law is leading pioneering research across key legal disciplines, including international criminal law and immigration. Our tutors bring global experience and diverse academic interests, including human rights; all of which informs your studies.
Law is an intellectually stimulating discipline and you will gain a thorough grounding in the principles of the English legal system, and also gain reflection through social, political, economic, ethical and historical perspectives. You will build a range of transferable skills, such as abstract thinking and practical problem-solving, which are relevant to a wide range of related careers (such as businesses or charities).
Though this degree does not offer exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister, the first year content is common with our LLB course, and those who are successful in all first year modules may transfer on to year two of the LLB.
English law governs global commerce and legal systems around the world, so a law degree from an English university will open the doors to an international legal career if you decide not to stay in the UK.
A law degree is highly valued by employers and transferable to a wide range of sectors, including: local government, politics, the civil service, business, management, and administration.
