LLB Law with Legal Studies in Europe M125
As well as providing a thorough understanding of the workings of the legal system, you will be able to actively engage with practical aspects of the law, from mooting and negotiation skills to pro bono work in the community.
The study of law will help you to develop your powers of analysis, criticism, persuasion, problem solving, and oral and written expression. You can explore the civil law traditions and development of one of our continental neighbours by spending a year in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain or Sweden. In the Netherlands and Sweden, classes are delivered in English so no prior language knowledge is required. If you wish to study in any of the other countries you should have adequate knowledge of the relevant language. There is an option to gain this in an option that may be taken in the first two years of your course.
You will be joining a course with a reputation for high graduate employability - our degree programmes provide the first qualification for entry into the legal profession, with the Law Society and Bar Council exempting our graduates from the first stage of professional training.
