Course summary

This 4-year programme gives you the opportunity to gain a rigorous legal education and study law in another European country, broadening your horizons and boosting your employability. Designed to challenge and inspire future legal professionals, this course is formally accepted by the Law Society of England and Wales and the Bar Council of England and Wales.Having mastered the qualifying law degree subjects in your first 2 years, you'll spend your third year studying at one of our partner institutions in a European country. Most destinations offer modules taught in English. For others you can spend 2 years studying the language before you go. We currently have partners in Athens, Bergen, Bologna, Fribourg, Granada, Leuven, Lyon, Malta, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm and Vienna. As well as gaining valuable insights into a different legal system, you'll develop the confidence and independence that comes from living in another country. You’ll return to Southampton for your final year, during which you'll take a number of optional modules and complete your dissertation. Our unique employability skills programme will ensure you consolidate what you learn through exceptional work experience and networking opportunities. As part of your degree you can experience law in action by applying to shadow a senior member of the judiciary in the High Court or Court of Appeal. Work alongside legal professionals to advise students at the Law Clinic in housing, business and family law. You'll engage with our academic research groups including the Stefan Cross Centre for Women, Equality and Law, and the Institute of Maritime Law. Hone your presentation skills on the Streetlaw programme and take part in a range of competitions to enhance your skills, including the Womble Bond Dickinson Team Building Challenge and regional, national and international mooting and negotiation competitions. By studying modules outside of law you can broaden your knowledge with interdisciplinary study. You can forge even stronger links within our friendly community by joining a student-run society such as the Law Society, Inns of Court Society, Mooting Society, Lawyers without Borders and the Canadian Law Society. You will have access to excellent learning facilities to support your studies. These include superb library resources including comprehensive collections in all the main subject areas such as contract law, property law, maritime law, criminal justice and public law. You can also access European and international resources, all housed in the main University library. We provide anytime access to an extensive range of electronic resources such as Westlaw, Lexis and Lawtel. Practise your advocacy skills in our purpose-built moot room
