Interested in developing practical legal knowledge and an understanding of how interplay between Law and Politics affects issues such as war and peace, poverty and inequality, order and justice, governance and power? This qualifying Law degree is taught by the world-leading, research-active academics based in our prestigious Law School and PPR Department. They will introduce you to core topics in Politics and Law and support you as you develop specialist and transferable skills.
You will benefit from our strong links to Chambers, Law firms and Institutes 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. The Richardson Institute for peace and conflict research offers a wide variety of research projects, providing you with the opportunity to work alongside external clients such as the Ministry of Defence and Radicalisation Research. All of this helps you to make professional connections and get a head start on your chosen career.
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 potential employer networks.
