Study themes

All teaching and learning activities across the course are designed to develop academic and non-academic writing skills, research skills, presentational skills, advocacy skills, practical administrative skills and employability skills.

Your main study themes are:

  • The English Legal System: An understanding of the classifications of law into public/private, domestic/European/international and civil/criminal. Key concepts of criminal law and its application to real life scenarios.
  • Internationalisation: Comparative study of other legal systems, such as the European Union or legal systems in other jurisdictions which are also based on English common law.
  • Client Care and Practice: Conducting interviews and best practices, identifying legal problems, customer support and system management and law from the clients’ perspective.
  • Research Methods: Internet based law research resources, such as Westlaw, LexisNexis and LawTel. Presentation of work through digital media is built into session plans.

How you'll be taught

This course is available as a full-time three year or optional four-year sandwich course, the latter incorporating a work placement or study year in a related field. Alternatively, part-time study is also available and with our Saturday University programme, this course can be completed in as little as three years. Our teaching methods are varied, offering a number of teaching styles to suit the needs of all our students, so in addition to lectures, we also utilise a blended learning approach, including online aspects, workshops and group work.

We also operate an open-door policy, with additional availability via email and our online learning platform, Moodle.

Progression through the modules develops knowledge and skills, including communication (written and oral), study skills, research methods, project management, presentation and career development. We will also encourage you to consider your employability and/or entrepreneurial development.

Unlike traditional institutions, there are no end of year exams. Instead, learning is assessed through coursework and phase tests, which is more reflective of our learning model.
