WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

Law & Practice BA (Hons) Degree combines the traditional theoretical approach to learning the law with a strong emphasis on how the law works in the real world of legal practice. The course focuses on the core legal subjects of Crime, Contract, Tort, Land Law, Public Law, Equity and European Union Law, but extends the area of study to include subjects offered by other institutions only as optional. The degree also places huge emphasis on less traditional practice modules, where the skills and knowledge learned will provide you with skills sought by employers and will help prepare you for additional professional qualifications. We embed the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) professional qualifications into all our academic programmes, leading to a recognised professional qualification. Your degree will provide you with a stepping stone to the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), which permits progress onto the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Bar Practice Training.
