Course summary

**Summary**: This course includes an integrated foundation year if you don’t have the appropriate subjects or grades for direct entry to the first year of the degree. A law degree brings with it prestige, good career prospects and the possibility of an attractive salary but, more than this, it opens a route into the legal profession. As a law graduate you are a fact finder, a problem solver and able to develop reasoned arguments. These skills are transferable enabling a diverse range of career opportunities.**Course details**: You study the essential components of law which allow you to achieve a qualifying law degree, as well as choosing from a number of optional modules as diverse as the law of evidence, international law, family law, medical law and employment law. You learn key skills which you can use in any career – critical appraisal, expressing a logical argument, research skills and fluent communication – and you get a taste of practising law in our replica courtroom. Add this to the experience you could gain from voluntary work, a placement, or Teesside Law Clinic, and you will have the transferable skills that mean you are well placed to work in a range of careers in all sorts of business environments. Excellent facilities include a courtroom that has all the features of a modern court and can be used as a fully functioning facility. Our specialist crime scene house is one of only a few such facilities in the country.To get Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) status, you must successfully complete the foundations of legal knowledge; these seven subjects are Contract Law, Public Law, Tort, Land Law, Criminal Law, Equity and Trusts, and European Union Law. In addition, a range of option modules are available to choose from in years two and three.The Law Section at Teesside has long established links with the local legal community. In addition to the opportunities provided by participating in the Law Clinic module, further prospects for interaction and networking opportunities with professionals have been facilitated by establishing a family law clinic and through our current Contemporary Legal Issues module. You are encouraged and supported in your efforts to acquire work experience with solicitors, barristers and the opportunity to sit with a judge in court, where available. There are also opportunities for relevant voluntary work including through the University’s VolunTees scheme and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau.**After the course**: Graduates from our LLB (Hons) programme gain the necessary exemptions from the academic stage of training. Whilst many of our graduates choose to continue their studies through a range of professional courses or opportunities for further academic research, many others have successfully secured employment in such varied fields as teaching, management, the media, retail and a number of criminal justice agencies and related organisations and pressure groups. Our award-winning careers service works with regional and national employers to advertise graduate positions, in addition to providing post-graduation support for all Teesside University alumni.
