The foundation subjects are Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Law of Tort, Law of Contract, Land Law, Law of Trusts (Equity), and Law of the EU. Please note that professional bodies are reviewing the requirements for qualifying as a solicitor or barrister.

The graduates go on to qualify as barristers and solicitors and find employment within the legal departments of the Civil Service, local government, industrial and commercial firms, banks, and international organizations. Others stay in academia or seek careers in administration, management, politics or finance.
