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 by taking a compulsory Politics module and the Law modules required for a Qualifying Law Degree including: English Legal System, Public Law, Contract Law, Property Law, Land Law and Trusts. You will then be able to choose from a wide range of optional modules, including Family Law, Responses to Massive Human Rights Violations and Immigration and Asylum Law.
