Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

This innovative programme will equip you with the core foundation legal knowledge and practical skills needed for entry to the legal profession particularly in a paralegal capacity.

COURSE CONTENT

The Law with Professional Legal Practice pathway is an innovative response to the Solicitors Qualifying Examination. This pathway will deliver the same core modules addressing the Foundations of Legal Knowledge that are offered in all of our Law pathways. It will also provide the opportunity for students wishing to qualify as a solicitor to follow a dedicated pathway of practice based modules within a Law degree with the quality and rigour recognised externally by law firms and chambers. In addition to the dedicated practice-based modules, you'll have lots of opportunities to further develop your practical skills. You can take part in mooting (practising oral arguments), client interviewing, negotiation, or could volunteer as a Community Legal Companion or in either our Divorce or Commercial Law Legal Advice Clinics.

TEACHING

Our courses are taught by lecturers actively researching your areas of study, so you will benefit from the knowledge of people at the forefront of their fields. You will also benefit from our passionate, talented and innovative styles; our lecturers are regularly nominated for national teaching awards (including LawCareers.Net Law Lecturer of the Year and Oxford University Press Law Teacher of the Year).

CAREER PROSPECTS

This programme is a qualifying law degree which offers the current professional exemptions you need to train to practise as a solicitor or barrister. Additionally, the Professional Legal Practice pathway offers a unique and innovative stream of modules that will equip students with the practical legal skills usually only acquired through postgraduate study. This suite of practice-based modules teaches and assesses practical legal skills such as advocacy, writing, drafting, legal research and mediation as well as areas of legal practice. Graduates may use these legal skills to acquire the qualifying work experience element of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination, such as paralegal work or voluntary work at a law centre.
