What is law?
An often fast-paced and far-reaching system of rules designed to ensure equality in society and protect individuals' rights. The legal profession has two different strands, both aimed at securing the best possible outcome for their clients. As a barrister, you plead cases on behalf of your client in Court. As a solicitor you manage your client's case from the very beginning right the way through to its conclusion.

Key areas of study
This course provides you with the opportunity to study a number of key legal areas including criminal law • civil law • corporate law • public law • human rights and negligence.

We also have a range of modules directly related to the legal profession, which involve work on real live client work.

Law clinic
Our law clinic is a fully regulated solicitors' practice where you work under the supervision of qualified solicitors on real cases from first interview to county court or employment tribunal, as appropriate. It gives you an insight into the pressures and demands of the legal profession.

Law in practice
You can build on practical experience in the law by applying to spend one day each week with a legal service provider to gain invaluable experience within a professional setting. Law in practice is often in a solicitor's office working on real life cases.

Law in practice (international)
To gain a greater understanding of law in practice in an international setting, you can apply to spend the summer working law firms across the USA.

Innocence Project UK programme
You can apply to work on a real case of an alleged miscarriage of justice on our Innocence project. You will gain a unique insight into the criminal justice system which many do not experience until in practice.

Law in the community
You work in a team to research and deliver presentations on different areas of law to various community groups. This develops your legal research and presentation skills.

Mooting
Being able to advocate is an essential part of a solicitor's or barrister's career. You represent fictitious clients in a mock trial, usually on a matter of civil law. This takes place in our on-campus moot court.
