What is the Programme designed to achieve?

Law is an exciting and rewarding discipline offering students the opportunity to develop a number of important skills - skills which are not only essential to their training as a lawyer, but are also valuable transferable skills in themselves in other employment contexts.

By the end of the course you should:

  • Have developed an awareness and understanding of legal principles, legal processes and also the inter-relationship between different areas of law in a national and  European context;
  • Have developed a range of legal skills, including an ability to undertake legal research;
  • Have the ability to analyse legal information, apply it to legal problems and suggest appropriate solutions;
  • Have developed a capacity for critical assessment of the law;
  • Be able to communicate legal information effectively, both orally and in writing;
  • Be able to assume responsibility for the continuing development of your own legal education and competence.

The Programme aims to:

  • Provide an academically rigorous programme of legal education designed to prepare non-law graduates for entry to the vocational stage of training;
  • Enable the acquisition of a sound knowledge of the areas of law which are considered to be fundamental or core, together with an understanding of the legal systems of England and Wales.
