This programme is accredited as a Qualifying Law Degree in England and Wales by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board and gives exemption from the academic stage of qualification for both branches of the legal profession. Therefore it is ideal for those intending to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. Students benefit from court and prison visits, a dedicated Moot Room for moots and mock trials, and a Law and Criminal Justice block. The Law team has strong links with the local legal profession and visiting law firms and barristers provide students with career advice.
Students benefit from a varied and imaginative modular scheme, which is designed to offer students a wide range of options in addition to the foundation subjects identified by the legal professional bodies. We are committed to a student-centred approach to teaching and learning so we ensure that we teach Law in its social, political, and economic context across all three stages of the course. We offer a wide range of additional voluntary activities, such as court visits, mooting, client interviewing and negotiating. There is also the Student Law Society, which organises social and professional activities for those students who wish to follow a legal career.
By the time you graduate you will have developed a range of skills which will enhance your employability whether in the legal profession or in another career. We work closely with the University Centre for Employability and Engagement (UCEE), who will support you with your career planning. Students attend the annual Law Careers Fair and University Careers Fair which offers the opportunity to meet with potential future employers.
