We combine rigour in understanding and applying legal doctrine with insight into the interactions between law and broader political and social forces. Our aim is to equip you with a set of adaptable intellectual and professional skills that will position you for success whether you pursue a career in law, government, business, or any other endeavour.We are ranked in the top 20 for law in the UK by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021 (top 101-125 globally) and 15th for employability in law in the Guardian University Guide 2021**What you will study**On our LLB Law course, you’ll gain a deep understanding of the main areas of legal knowledge, including law as it regulates the functions of the state (public law and criminal law), law as it regulates relations between private individuals (contract law and tort law), and law as it regulates the ownership and control of land and other property (land law, and equity and trusts). In addition to these core subjects, after the first year you will have the option to study a range of topics with experts in their fields, from Environmental Law to International Humanitarian Law to Medical Law to Tax Law, among many others.You will learn how to debate the law, to analyse its application to given situations and to apply your legal understanding in a national or international context. Further opportunities to develop your professional skills are provided through a series of extracurricular activities focusing on client interviewing, negotiation and mooting.
