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 through a law degree with a year abroad in Europe. UEA Law School is housed in historic Earlham Hall. You will join a welcoming and collegiate community of legal scholars and students. You will be taught by dedicated lecturers with expertise in a range of legal fields and will be part of a vibrant student body with an active law society. **Overview**The LLB (Hons) in Law with European Legal Systems offers an exciting opportunity to combine a law degree with a broader educational and cultural experience through a year studying at another European law faculty. This is a four-year programme with a year abroad in the third year. The programme can be tailored to your interests, including the study of French or Spanish. If you do not have a foreign language, you can study at one of our partner law faculties across Europe where law modules are taught in English. These modules will allow you to develop your understanding of European and International Law. For this pathway, we currently have links with universities in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Slovakia and Slovenia. If you have previously studied French at A level (or equivalent), you can follow a pathway specialising in French. You will take French language tuition throughout the first and second year in preparation for the third year at one of our partner French law faculties. You can choose to study fully in French or combine law modules offered in English with some in French. If you have previously studied Spanish at A Level (or equivalent), you can follow a pathway specialising in Spanish. You will take Spanish language tuition throughout the first and second year in preparation for the third year at one of our partner Spanish law faculties. You can choose to study fully in Spanish or combine law modules offered in English with some in Spanish. You will start your degree by establishing the building blocks of legal knowledge. At the same time, you will begin cultivating important skills, such as research, writing and constructing a reasoned argument. 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 and fourth years, you will tailor your degree by choosing modules that suit your interests. Our semesterised system means that modules are a semester long, not year long, allowing you to study more broadly. You will be free to choose two optional modules in your second year and six in your fourth year (with slightly fewer if you are taking language tuition). You will have a wide choice of options including Criminology, Family Law, Law and Business, Company Law, Competition Law, Crime and Sentencing, Intellectual Property Law, Internet Law, Forced Migration and Refugee Law, and Media Law. At the end of your four year degree, you will obtain a law degree, have a very good understanding of the European legal system, plus a wide range of transferable skills, making this course an attractive prospect for those intending to enter the legal profession. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
