What Will You Study

Lancaster’s Law and Politics degree is a three-year scheme taught by our School of Law and our Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion. This degree gives you the opportunity to study Politics while taking courses necessary to obtain a Law qualifying degree.

The legal and political environment is always changing and your degree will help you develop the capacity to respond to new challenges. You’ll learn through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials, taking modules designed to develop your skills of analysis, reasoning and the clear presentation of facts and arguments. 

You’ll begin your degree with a compulsory Politics module and the following Law modules: English Legal System; Public Law; Contract Law, and Torts. In your second year, you’ll study at least one Politics module alongside Criminal Law; EU Law; Grievances and the State. You’ll also be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules and will complete your degree with courses that cover Property Law; Land Law, and Trusts.
