What is law?

Law is a subject which impacts on us all; you’ll study how laws are made and the main principles of the English legal system.

 

What will I study?

You will study the English legal system, law making and areas of both private and public law in England and Wales. Through the study of criminal law, the law of tort and contract law, you will learn, develop and apply the techniques of legal method and reasoning to analyse and offer answers to legal problems, and construct and communicate legal arguments.

 

Trips, visits and enrichments:

  • We visit courts in Birmingham to watch legal cases in action
  • Participation in the national bar mock trial competition
  • Speakers from the legal system deliver information sessions for law students

 

What can it lead to?

Our students go on to study a wide variety of degrees including the LLB and other law-related degrees. Some choose alternative pathways by becoming paralegals, legal apprentices or training to become legal executives.
