Overview

Law programm focus on the law of England and Wales as affected by European and international law. Programmes include optional placement opportunities and all are Qualifying Law Degrees, required for progression to further training as either a solicitor or a barrister. You will be schooled in the core elements of legal understanding. These include law as it regulates the functions of the state (that is, EU Law, Public Law and Criminal Law), as it regulates relations between private individuals (Contract Law and Tort Law) or as it regulates the ownership and control of land and other property (Land Law and Equity and Trusts). Students will also have further opportunities to study legal subjects of interest to them during their time at Surrey.

Whilst you will spend a considerable amount of time identifying current legal rules and principles, our law degrees are a far cry from the memorisation of dry legal detail. In addition to learning what law is, you will be expected to debate about it and to analyse its application to given situations.

Your legal training will involve the systematic application of the law through the discussion and analysis of problem questions. It will also require you to analyse the law from a critical perspective through the writing of essays, which often require a theoretical perspective. You will therefore be expected to place law in its social, moral and political context
