This degree enables students to progress their knowledge of substantive law and to think about law practically. Students are encouraged to build an understanding of the context of the English legal system – its origins, history, and practices – and reflect upon policy and the social, political, ethical, philosophical, and cultural contexts in which the law operates. The course gives students the chance to choose areas of law in which they have a particular interest. It provides a range of optional modules alongside core topics. In the final year, students have the option of writing a dissertation or having their voluntary work in the student-led Law Clinic officially recognised by undertaking an assessed module. Students undertaking the programme can benefit from an optional study abroad period between their second and third years. Previous students have studied in Norway and the Netherlands. Limited places are available and are allocated competitively, subject to academic criteria. Please note that students are responsible for their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs when studying abroad.
