Overview

Understanding and advising an organisation on how to comply with its legal obligations is a skill that is increasingly in demand.

Our BA (Hons) in Law is designed for students who may not wish to pursue a professional legal career, but have an interest in a career in law and/or looking to apply knowledge in another area of business or service provision.

You will integrate applied work-based and skills-based modules that will help allow you to prepare practically as well as academically for a successful career, both within and outside of the legal professions.

We will help you build up your legal knowledge and commercial awareness, and gain a wide range of transferable skills, such as abstract thinking and practical problem-solving, which are relevant to a wide range of related careers.

Although this degree does not offer exemptions from the academic stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister, the first year content is common with our LLB (Hons) Law, and those who are successful in all first year modules may choose to transfer on to year two of the LLB programme.

With our convenient position in the Thames Valley, you have easy access to London and regional areas for law events, as well as work opportunities and placements during the holidays.

Our active Student Law Society and Mooting Society also organises both legal and social events and our students are active participants in national mooting competitions.

Our team of tutors includes qualified lawyers combining backgrounds as academics and as practitioners, so they add depth and breadth to your experience of the study of law. You will also benefit from talks by guest lecturers from specialist areas.

With smaller, more intimate, class sizes, our staff are committed to nurturing your development, helping you graduate with the skills and capabilities for a successful and fulfilling career.

Career opportunities

We actively encourage, and support, our students to find, and take part in, work experience with a wide variety of organisations or legal practices during the summer break.

Work experience in the form of placements and internships can greatly improve your employment prospects, and taking part can also help enhance academic results as you can apply your learning to a professional setting.

This programme also includes careers events, such as ‘life after graduation’ where employers and alumni are invited to talk about career opportunities in law and related industries, providing valuable networking opportunities.

Key employers, and work opportunities, include commercial employers, small and large, banks and insurance agencies, human resources, in-house company and industry advisers, as well as law firms, advocacy agencies, the courts, legal advice providers, and civil service departments.
