The foundation year is carefully designed to build confidence in your abilities, develop essential academic and study skills, and provide you with the subject specific knowledge essential for success.** From the start, you will be encouraged to engage with legal issues and reflect on what you learn as an integral part of your experience. A high proportion of your time will be spent working face to face with tutors and developing your understanding of legal issues, particularly the core skills and competencies legal practitioners are expected to have. You will develop an understanding of the different areas of law-making and legal practice by visiting the historic courts of central London. This year, students have observed cases in the Supreme Court, visited other courts and tribunals as part of the Law in Practice module, and are also visiting the Houses of Parliament.Our dedicated Law Careers Advisor has established links with graduate recruiters and can give you ideas and tips to help you gain a good graduate job.
