Course summary

Why Law? The integrated Master’s in Law and Practice (MLaw) is a unique programme that aims to give you access to both a wide range of legal theory by incorporating a full LLB law degree, as well as taking an extended approach to professional practice with additional specialist practice-based training and clinical legal experience.* The course is rigorous and engaging, for outcomes that are highly rewarding. Graduating with a Qualifying Law Degree, as well as with a Masters qualification, you’ll learn the skills designed to allow you to work towards taking the new Solicitor’s Qualifying Exams (SQE1 and SQE 2) and be able to pace these over years three and four. In your final year, you’ll gain access to a range of specialist modules such as Commercial Property, Employment or Family Law and Practice and Immigration and Asylum Practice to help prepare you for professional practice in these fields. Alongside this, if your application to the Legal Advice Clinic is successful, you’ll get the opportunity* to spend a full academic year working with solicitors with real life clients building up your formal Qualifying Legal Work Experience, that is needed to become a solicitor. Taking a Huddersfield Law School degree means whichever path you choose, MLaw, LLB in Law or LLB in Law and Practice, all degree programmes support you in exploring your options and the career path you wish to take. You can also change your route right up to the end of your second year and choose the path that is best for you, for your final year. As well as gaining an understanding of the law itself, studying a law degree will teach you a wide range of essential skills such as how to construct an argument, how to communicate with clients, the importance of attention to detail, and the ability to work in a team as well as on your own initiative. We’ll help you to build your employability skills while you study, making you stand out to potential employers. *Where available How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions. - You’ll gain a firm understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts. - You’ll be able to start focusing on the topics that interest you in your second and third years, when you can choose from a range of specialised modules. - Our Partners in Law scheme is a part of the excellent range of networking opportunities that gives you opportunities to engage with both local and national law firms. - We can provide you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through our links with regional and internationally renowned legal firms. - You may decide to take up the opportunity to be part of our *Legal Advice Clinic, where you will work closely with practising solicitors and help them with real cases. *Available from Year 2 and subject to successfully completing a competency assessment. Legal Advice Clinic The Legal Advice Clinic was set up by students in 2013 in response to the legal aid cuts which left the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society without access to legal representation. The university invested in a clinic which is innovatively placed off campus in a shop in the town centre. IMPORTANT NOTICE If you are thinking of becoming a solicitor please be aware that from September 2021 the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced it will be introducing a set of national assessments called the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) for anyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. If you have already started your law degree, you will be able to finish and qualify in the same way as before by taking the MLP or an external LPC. Or, you may choose to take the new SQE. The SRA is providing information and guidance about
