Course summary

How will Covid-19 affect this course?

This course will start online and may then continue on campus depending on the latest coronavirus policies.

On our four-year BA Philosophy and Law (including foundation year), we work with you to develop your subject-specific knowledge, and to improve your academic skills. You receive a thorough grounding in these areas during your foundation year (known as Year Zero) to prepare you for a further three years of undergraduate study at Essex. Our five-year version of this course enables you to study abroad during your fourth year of study. This course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three or four years of study, depending on whether you choose to study abroad for a year. During your Year Zero, you study three academic subjects relevant to your chosen course as well as a compulsory academic skills module. Not just quiet contemplation – philosophy has great practical value. You study philosophy and law together in order to appreciate the relationships between them with a degree of critical awareness. Moral, political and legal philosophy have implications for law, and philosophers can learn from lawyers too in various ways. Our course offers plenty of opportunity to study, not only what the law is, but also what the law ought to be.You also have the opportunity to take part in a number of extracurricular activities to build on your credentials for future employment. Volunteer at our Law Clinic offering legal advice to real clients, participate in mooting competitions, test your skills in client interviewing competitions, join our law, human rights and bar societies and take advantage of networking opportunities with visiting law firms.
