A legal education can open up new and interesting career opportunities. Law schools offer a wide variety of degrees or certificates to match your interests, your goals, and your schedule.

A law degree allows you to learn about the law, both in the sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and studying law as a social institution. As a law student, you will gain expertise in analysis, research, logical argument, and more as you develop an understanding of key topics within the law and the legal sector.

In addition to areas such as contract law, international law, and criminal law, you’ll examine the broader context of the law and its relationship with society. We offer a wide range of optional modules, enabling you to develop your interests in specialist legal areas such as company or employment law, human rights law, environmental law, and family law. You could also explore topics in criminal justice and criminology, such as policing or youth crime.
