Course summary

**About This Course**Join a top Law School that offers an intimate and engaging, student-focused law degree experience. Gain the skills and confidence you need to excel within or beyond the legal profession.You will study in the superb, collegiate environment of Earlham Hall, where you will benefit from the expertise of teachers conducting influential research in a wide range of fields including commercial law, competition law, the law of public protest, internet and media law, law and medicine, and the law of government commerce. You will also be able to help the local community by offering pro bono legal advice.**Overview**The LLB (Hons) in Law with American Law offers an exciting opportunity to combine a qualifying law degree with a broader educational and cultural experience.Although the US legal system originates from the English common law it has developed in markedly different ways.Its study provides a comparative element to your legal education and an insight into the politics, history and culture of the United States. As well as taking two American Law modules at UEA, you will spend your third year at one of our partner law schools in the US. At the end of this four year course, you will obtain an English qualifying law degree and have a good understanding of the US legal system, making this course an attractive prospect for those intending to enter the legal profession.You will start your degree by establishing the building blocks of legal knowledge. At the same time, you will begin to cultivate important skills, such as reasoning, research and writing, formulating convincing arguments, negotiating and working as part of a team.The point of legal study is not simply to memorise the law, but to be able to engage with it skillfully. As such, many of the skills you will develop are transferrable and will be valuable to you within or beyond a career in law.In your second year, alongside your English law modules, you will study the US legal system and US Constitutional Law in preparation for the year abroad. You will spend your third year at one of our partner US law schools, where you will take classes alongside American students. Currently, students attend either Cumberland Law School at Samford University (Birmingham, Alabama) or South Texas College of Law (Houston, Texas).Beginning in the second year, you will have the opportunity to tailor your degree to suit your interests. Our semesterised modular system means that core modules are a semester long, not year long, allowing you to study more broadly.You will be free to choose one optional module at UEA in your second year and five in your fourth year. You will have a wide choice of options including Criminology, Family Law, Law and Business, British Human Rights Law, Company Law, Competition Law, Crime and Sentencing, Intellectual Property Law, Internet Law, International Humanitarian Law and Media Law.During your degree you will also have many opportunities to build your skills, confidence and professional CV through extra-curricular activities. You could, for example, complete an internship at a law firm. Or you could ‘marshal’, spending a day on the bench with a judge during a trial. You could benefit from the alumni-mentoring scheme, where UEA Law School graduates offer career mentoring to individual students. Or you could make a difference in the local community, working for the public good (pro bono). In less than five years, our students have recovered no less than £2.5 million for welfare claimants wrongly denied payments. In 2014 we won the prestigious national award ‘LawWorks Pro Bono Partnership Award’.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
