What Will You Study

This qualifying Law degree is taught by the world-leading, research-active academics based in our prestigious Law School. They will introduce you to technical legal topics and help you to understand the ways that law shapes society. Specialising in the area of International Law, this degree gives students an international and comparative perspective on the Law. Alongside your LLB Core modules, you will select options from:

  • International Human Rights Law
  • International Law
  • Private International Law
  • Responses to Massive Violations of Human Rights
  • Human Rights and Civil Liberties

You will benefit from our strong links to Chambers, Law firms and related professions from across the UK, including magic circle firms from London. We host a judicial lecture series, alumni visits and lectures, and a Law Fair, which is your chance to meet lawyers (including trainees, associates and partners) and members of their recruitment teams. All of this helps you to make professional connections, learn more about their firms, and get a head start on your career in Law.

Our student-run Law Society provides you with a wide range of extracurricular activities including mooting and negotiation competitions (judged by barristers and members of the judiciary), a Law Ball, sporting fixtures, and a careers dinner. Each event is designed to help you build your peer and employer networks.

Practical experience is integral to this degree and you can take part in initiatives such as our newly-launched Law Clinic which gives you real-world experience providing free legal advice to members of the local community. Our Miscarriages of Justice Project gives you the chance to work on real criminal cases alongside practising lawyers as they support prisoners who maintain their innocence and have exhausted their appeal rights. Through the Street Law project you can gain experience in schools and organisations, advising and supporting them on specific areas of law.
