Combining Law with Social Policy leading to a qualifying law degree gives you an opportunity to study in greater depth areas relating to social policy. Studies will relate to theories, policies, practice and important issues that are affecting the Law - studies that will be of value for graduates who will later qualify as practising solicitors or barristers. Examples of Social Policy areas that relate to Law include: policing, the sentencing framework, the function of the courts in England and Wales, housing and welfare matters, and issues relating to immigration and ethnic minority groups. A range of Social Policy modules is undertaken in conjunction with the compulsory modules in Law. Bangor University is recognised as a qualifying law degree provider by the Bar Standards Board and this degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
