Law plays a fundamental part in our everyday lives. Have you ever considered, for example, how many contracts you form each year, or even each week?
Our Core Constitutional Law and Human Rights module will introduce you to the English legal system and the European Convention on Human Rights. You'll explore how the legal system intersects with politics at a national and an international level.
Alongside our core Constitutional Law and Human Rights module, you will tailor the course to match your interests. You'll focus your learning on either Criminal Law or Tort and Contract Law, giving you the opportunity to explore two distinct areas of the discipline that affect everyday life. To complement your legal studies you have the option of studying History or Politics and International Relations - both enabling you to place law in context to enhance your understanding of the subject.
Our Academic Skills module will draw all of your learning together - requiring you to develop and deploy critical thinking and cross-disciplinary understanding that will prepare you for your future studies.
A combination of lectures, seminars and class discussions will be complemented by other activities such as case studies, open-ended questions and critical reasoning. In total, you’ll benefit from 18 hours of contact time with staff, as well as up to 5 hours per week of English language.
Assessments will take a variety of different forms allowing you to demonstrate the range of skills required to study for an undergraduate law degree at one of the UK’s top universities.
