The best preparation for the legal profession is to think like a lawyer from day one. Our practice-based approach means you’ll learn to understand the law in the context of everyday life and legal practice, and apply your learning in a number of ways.
This law degree has been designed by experienced academics and practitioners, with input from our internationally-renowned Crucible Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice. It is designed specifically to focus on your career development.
University of Roehampton
Throughout your degree, you will work with practitioners from the legal sector. You will gain the practical experience of putting law into action through our pro bono activities at the Law Clinic and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau and have the opportunity to go on work placements.
From the start, you will be encouraged to engage with legal issues and reflect on what you learn as an integral part of your experience. A high proportion of your time will be spent working face to face with tutors and developing your understanding of legal issues, particularly the core skills and competencies legal practitioners are expected to have.
You will develop an understanding of the different areas of law-making and legal practice by visiting the historic courts of central London. This year, students have observed cases in the Supreme Court, visited other courts and tribunals as part of the Law in Practice module, and are also visiting the Houses of Parliament.
