Overview

Law affects every aspect of our lives: from our relationships with other people, to our interactions with shops, banks, companies and governments. Studying law enables you to understand how societies are regulated and how you can change it.

Our LLB Law (Senior Status) is designed for those with an existing degree and provides a comprehensive training in law over a concentrated two-year period. The course gives you exemption from the academic stage of training for the legal profession, allowing you to proceed to the Bar Professional Training Course or the Legal Practice Course.

At Essex we teach the law that matters, with a concern for the demands of justice and commerce. We combine a rigorous legal training with opportunities for developing your practical expertise, and you learn to analyse the law of England and Wales in relation to its European and international frameworks and to apply it in practice.

As a law student, not only will you learn legal rules, but you will also consider the function of law in society, the philosophy of law, policy issues and law reform. You cover all the key areas of law including:

- Property law, land law, equity and trusts
- Law of the European Union
- Contract law and tort law
- Criminal law
- Public law

Law needs good lawyers. We are top 20 in the UK for research excellence (REF 2014), and we are ranked among the top 200 departments on the planet according to the QS World [University] Rankings [2016] for law.

At Essex, we don’t simply prepare you to for the legal profession. We equip you with the skills and knowledge to become an agent for change, whatever career path you choose.
