Our Lawyers make up a large, diverse and supportive subject community in college. There is a flourishing Law Society.

The BA in Law focuses on English law, but also provides opportunities for the study of other legal systems, as well as the theoretical and sociological aspects of law. Students who pass the seven 'foundation' subjects may proceed directly to vocational training courses leading to the final professional examinations for barristers and solicitors. The two-year affiliate version of the course is recognised as a Senior Status Law Degree.


Further information about the course can be found on the Faculty and University websites.
