Welcome to Law
We offer a great range of Law courses and pride ourselves on supporting our students.
Choose from a range of Qualifying Law Degrees; LLB (Hons) Law, LLB (Hons) Law (Social Welfare), LLB (Hons) Law (Marketing), and LLB (Hons) Law (Accountancy) or our Foundation degree in Law and Legal Practice.
All courses are delivered in a city with significant legal lineage, including a Combined Courts Centre (Crown and County Court), a central Magistrates Court, a Tribunal Hearing Centre, a Barristers' chamber, and a considerable number of Solicitors' practices.
What we offer
We prepare you for your future whilst offering flexibility and choice. Our law portfolio has four degrees recognised as Qualifying Law Degrees by the legal professional bodies, and a Foundation Degree.
Your future career is our central concern and that preparation goes beyond the acquisition of legal knowledge to developing legal skills. As a degree student, you have the option of undertaking Work Placement modules or Legal Skills modules. These modules focus on client counselling, advocacy (we have a moot courtroom!), negotiation, and legal research and writing. All skills that you will require in the legal and business world!
All of our degree students do a final year Dissertation. We have an appropriate staff/student ratio to support this through one-to-one supervision. Within the Dissertation you are able to undertake primary research (interviews/questionnaires). This is a great experience in itself, develops new skills, and helps you stand out from the crowd. We encourage you to become authors (or co-authors with your tutors) publishing in our Law and College journals.
All our students are supported by a comprehensive e-learning portal, Moodle. This will provide you with an extensive range of electronic resources including links to useful websites, to our e-databases, electronic books and tutor/librarian produced materials. There are videos, online tests, and materials to ensure that you have the best opportunity to succeed in your study.
Our focus is on working with our students and not creating overly big classes. We are friendly and informal and pride ourselves on supporting you, ensuring that you graduate with the knowledge and skills required to succeed, and have the opportunity to make yourself stand out from the crowd.
We look forward to welcoming you.
