What will I learn?

Overview

Why study law with us

You will learn the principles of the English legal system, and gain reflection through social, political, economic, ethical and historical perspectives. You will also build a range of transferable skills, including abstract thinking and problem solving, that will allow you to prepare practically as well as academically for a successful legal career.

Build your hands-on experience while developing your legal skills

After you have completed your year one modules, you will have the option to transfer to year two of the LLB, which, on completion will lead to the academic and vocational training required to become a fully qualified solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

You will have use of original council chambers in Hendon Town Hall, featuring a judge's bench and public gallery for mooting and lectures.

Work-based and skills-based modules will allow you to gain practical, hands-on experience, and employability skills in both legal and non-legal environments.

You will get plenty of support from tutors, including highly trained solicitors and barristers who bring vast experience in a variety of legal settings to help shape your studies and enhance your areas of interest and expertise.

How is the BA Law taught?

You will develop your knowledge of all aspects of law at lectures and seminars, and supplement this with your own independent study. Lectures are often interactive, involving exercises and informal assessment by other students, and by you of your own work. Seminars are small group discussions which you will need to prepare for in advance. Here you will learn to analyse legal principles and apply them to practical situations, assess competing arguments and choose between alternative approaches. Group work and moots (pretend courts) will hone your skills of verbal argument and presentation.

Careers

How can the BA Law support your career?

English law governs global commerce and legal systems around the world, so a law degree from an English university will open the doors to an international legal career if you decide not to stay in the UK. A law degree is highly valued by employers and transferable to a wide range of sectors, including: local government, politics, the civil service, business, management, and administration.

Graduates who wish to pursue a career as a lawyer may take a Graduate Diploma in Law (CPE).
