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 European Legal Systems offers an exciting opportunity to combine a qualifying 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. We have links with universities throughout the continent.If you have previously studied French at A level (or equivalent), you can take French language tuition throughout the first and second year. You can then study at one of our partner French law faculties. You can choose to study fully in French, or combine modules offered in English with some in French.If you have previously studied Spanish at A Level you can take Spanish language tuition and study at one of our partner Spanish law faculties. You can choose to study fully in Spanish, or combine 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 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 skilfully. As such, many of the skills you will develop are transferable 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 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 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, British Human Rights Law, Company Law, Competition Law, Crime and Sentencing, Intellectual Property Law, Internet Law, International Humanitarian Law and Media Law.You will also have many opportunities to build your skills, confidence and professional CV with 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).At the end of your four year degree, you will obtain an English qualifying law degree and also 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
