Course summary

Understanding and advising an organisation on how to comply with its legal obligations is a skill that is increasingly in demand.Our BA (Hons) in Law is designed for students who may not wish to pursue a professional legal career, but have an interest in a career in law and/or looking to apply knowledge in another area of business or service provision.You will integrate applied work-based and skills-based modules that will help allow you to prepare practically as well as academically for a successful career, both within and outside of the legal professions.We will help you build up your legal knowledge and commercial awareness, and gain a wide range of transferable skills, such as abstract thinking and practical problem-solving, which are relevant to a wide range of related careers.Although this degree does not offer exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister, the first year content is common with our LLB (Hons) Law, and those who are successful in all first year modules may choose to transfer on to year two of the LLB programme.With our convenient position in the Thames Valley, you have easy access to London and regional areas for law events, as well as work opportunities and placements during the holidays.Our active Student Law Society and Mooting Society also organises both legal and social events and our students are active participants in national mooting competitions.Our team of tutors includes qualified lawyers combining backgrounds as academics and as practitioners, so they add depth and breadth to your experience of the study of law. You will also benefit from talks by guest lecturers from specialist areas.With smaller, more intimate, class sizes, our staff are committed to nurturing your development, helping you graduate with the skills and capabilities for a successful and fulfilling career.
