AVAILABLE AS A COMBINED DEGREE ONLY

The first three to four years of the law degree (depending on what degree it is combined with) are shared with subjects from the combined degree. This means that students will study the core units of Law alongside their combined degree subject, which provides a good balance between both types of study. In these core units, students will look at the foundations of law, as well as torts, criminal law, civil and criminal procedure, contracts and legal research.

In the final years of the law degree, students will focus only on law subjects, which are a combination of both core units and elective units. These electives gives students a chance to pursue their passions and strengths in the legal profession. Some electives will see students studying Competition Law, Anti-Discrimination Law, Criminology, Family Law, Environmental Law or Jurisprudence. There are 45 electives to choose from, some of which have prerequisites of study. This degree prides itself on taking an international focus to its studies, with compulsory international law subjects.
