Learn more about the Law courses we offer

Law touches almost every aspect of society, including business, politics, human rights, global trade, international relations, personal transactions and family relationships – so a degree in law is always relevant.

As a Law student, you'll tackle pressing ethical and legal issues facing society. A Law degree is the first step to a career in the legal sector and can prepare you for further training as a barrister or solicitor.

The knowledge, experience and skills you'll learn will also prepare you for many other graduate jobs. With your Law degree, you'll be ready to move into roles in insurance and banking, and into managerial positions across many other industries.
