UK Law Courses
Introduction to Law
Law programmes at UK universities provide a comprehensive and critical understanding of core legal principles and practical skills. Students will learn the content of law and legal analysis, gaining experience in the areas of mooting, arguing and negotiation. Mock courtrooms will help enhance the learning process, helping you gain valuable experience of a real world setting.
Almost all UK law courses allow students the option of taking a year’s professional placement at a firm, while overseas study is also available. Students can also choose to combine Law with another subject such as business, politics or journalism. All LLB programmes at UK universities are formally accredited by the Law Society of England and Wales and the Bar Council of England and Wales as qualifying law.
A Law degree will open up many different career options, and not only in the legal professions. In addition to traditional roles such as solicitors and barristers, Law graduates can use their qualification to find positions in journalism, business, criminology and many more diverse fields. After completing an undergraduate Law degree, many students opt to study a Masters of Laws postgraduate degree.
