Our course in law equips you with the tools required to understand the process of justice and the ways in which the letter of the law is interpreted in practice to deliver a fair and impartial result. The course will focus on UK and EU law, but there is scope to expand your understanding into the legal systems of other countries. In addition, you will consider some of the problems and issues that the implementation of the law faces around the world, and understand the processes by which the law changes.

The course offers ample opportunities for specialisation within one area of law, but there is also scope for a more broad-brush approach. If accepted onto the programme, you will have ample opportunities to discuss which approach will be best with your tutor.

Our course is taught by world-leading experts in their respective fields, and will be taught through the tutorial method (see below).

As part of this course you will be required to indicate a preference for which area of law you wish to study. When you are put in contact with your tutor before the course, you may provide a specific focus within the area which you wish the tutor to concentrate on; we will do our best to accommodate all requests.

Unit 1: Constitutional Law
Unit 2: UK Criminal Law
Unit 3: Legal Systems around the world
Unit 4: EU Law
Unit 5: Civil law in the UK

There is considerable scope for specialisation within each Unit, and they are not meant to be rigid; students are encouraged to make connections throughout the whole of the law, even if outside of their selected unit.
