What Will You Study

As well as studying the core foundation topics required as part of undertaking a qualifying law degree, you will be able to pursue your own interests through an extensive list of optional modules – some cover technical legal topics, while others explore the relationship between Law and society. Our optional modules include; Company Law, Health Care Law, Gender and the Law, and International Human Rights.

You can also choose to specialise in one of four areas of law from the second year of your studies by following one of our four degree pathways; International Law, Criminal Law and Justice, Commercial Law, and Human Rights Law. This opportunity to specialise from early on in your studies provides you with in-depth knowledge of these areas of law and supports future career opportunities. 

Outside of academic study you will have multiples opportunities to develop valuable practical legal experience and to develop your legal and employability skills. You can participate in mooting and negotiation competitions, undertake invaluable pro bono work, work with our dedicated careers support team to develop your CV, and join our very active student Law Society.
