Course Summary

With growing demand in Europe for lawyers qualified in more than one jurisdiction, this four-year dual degree programme involves two years of study both at UCL and at the Universität zu Köln in Germany, leading to the award of a Bachelor of Laws degree from each institution.

All UCL Laws undergraduate programmes are recognised as qualifying law degrees (QLDs) by the two main legal professional bodies—the Bar Standard Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority—for the purpose of exemption from the academic stage of their professional examinations.

Your learning

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials comprised of eight students. We encourage substantial student participation and class discussion in seminars and tutorials, based on prepared work. Considerable emphasis is placed on small group teaching where you will benefit from individual attention and advice.

Assessment

You are required to pass written examinations each year for most modules. In some cases, an essay also counts towards the final module mark.

Careers

As a law student you will be encouraged to develop a critical awareness of how the law works and how it may be changed, to sharpen your powers of reasoning, and to develop both the technical expertise to solve legal problems and the capacity to determine whether a solution is fair and just.

The wide range of skills and subjects learned throughout your degree open many opportunities when you graduate. Many UCL Laws graduates move directly to further vocational study and train to become solicitors or barristers. Recent graduates have also chosen employment in government, political service and commercial management. Some have selected to undertake further academic study.
