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.

Your learning

While at UCL, you will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, and tutorials with approximately 8 students. We encourage substantial student participation and discussion in seminars and tutorials on the basis of prepared work. Considerable emphasis is placed on small group teaching where you will benefit from individual attention and advice. In Cologne you will learn to be self-organised as you will choose between certain courses and create your own schedule.

Each week of years 1 and 2 of the programme students will have at least four x two-hour lectures and 2 small group tutorials each week of terms 1 and 2. In addition to formal learning and teaching events such as lectures, seminars and tutorials, you will have to undertake independent private study. Whilst everybody is different, we expect you to dedicate about 30 hours of private study per week. It may be more some weeks. Many students organise informal study groups and find working with colleagues helpful.

Assessment

You are required to pass written assessments each year for each of your modules at UCL. Some modules are assessed by way of presentation, for example, too.

In Cologne, you are required to pass written examinations at the end of each semester. Furthermore, you have to take 5 tutorials in your two years at the University of Cologne and one colloquium in Comparative Law. It is your choice whether you undertake your research essay with UCL or Cologne (varied regulations apply).

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. This programme allows students to gain legal knowledge of both jurisdictions.

The wide range of skills and subjects learned throughout your degree open up 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 a range of industries. Some have selected to undertake further academic study.
