Studying Law is a chance to look at the foundations of our society - looking at human rights, how businesses are allowed to practice and even regulations around property.  Whilst most graduates go on to careers in the legal sector, it is a degree with a huge variety of transferable skills that can lead to careers in a number of sectors.

Hello and welcome to the Law Pathway! If you choose to join this Pathway we hope you’ll find it a really rewarding and fun experience. Students in previous years have taken part in a range of activities. In the past, students have learned about human rights law, refugee law, international humanitarian law (the laws of war), constitutional law, privacy and surveillance, environmental and business law. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to work in smaller groups and bond with your fellow students. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions! Rebekah Corbett
  • What do I need to participate in the Law Pathway?

    We would advise that all students check the academic entry requirements (GCSE, A-Levels or equivalent) for each course before applying for their Pathway.  Many courses specify that you must have achieved a specific grade at a specific level in order to be conisidered for a place on the undergraduate programme.  You must meet the requirements of at least one of the available courses on your chosen Pathway. Therefore, it is important that you clarify this information as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
