- the opportunity to volunteer in our Legal Advice Clinic, Business, Law & Enterprise Clinic or Employment Law Clinic where you will be supervised by staff with many years experience in practice and actually handle cases for real clients;
- experienced teaching staff who bring professional or research expertise into their teaching;
- the opportunity to apply for a work placement, which is not only a fantastic experience but will also give you an edge when applying for jobs;
- the option to spend a year studying overseas, which provides you with an international experience that many businesses find appealing;
- regular guest lectures from employers who specialise in different areas of the law, giving you the opportunity to network with people already in the profession;
- a dedicated moot room, or mock court, where you will have the opportunity to develop your advocacy skills;
- by presenting legal issues against an opposing counsel and before a judge;
- the opportunity to present a paper at our Law Student Conference with the possibility of publication in the Coventry Law Journal.

Programme structure

Modules are normally delivered through large group lectures and seminars of 15 students. Seminars are interactive and may involve hypothetical problem questions, case studies and the analysis of more theoretical issues. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress and will be available for advice.

Career opportunities

Many of our graduates enter the legal profession in high street, national and international firms specialising in commercial and business law. Examples of recent employers of our graduates include: Ward and Rider Solicitors, a local firm founded in 1948; Brethertons LLP, a growing Midlands firm with six offices; and Ince and Co, a specialist international commercial firm with offices in Dubai, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Le Havre, London, Paris, Piraeus, Shanghai and Singapore.

Not all law students wish to enter the legal profession and a law degree can provide an excellent foundation for many careers, including one in local government.
