Keele University

Law and Philosophy

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Law and Philosophy complement each other perfectly, since both require close textual analysis, debating skills, attention to detail, and skill in argument construction of the kind for which a study of philosophical logic provides the perfect foundation. The Law component of the programme allows the freedom to choose courses tailored to students’ own interests and career aspirations. It provides an understanding of the operation of the law and legal processes in their social, political, ethical, historical and comparative contexts. Keele has been one of the most renowned centres for the study of Philosophy in England since WWII. The programme explores central themes such as moral philosophy, epistemology and political philosophy, considering key philosophical problems and the various solutions proposed. You will have the opportunity to take part in mooting (practising oral arguments), client interviewing and to work as a Community Legal Companion, within the innovative CLOCK programme, which was pioneered at Keele, as well as the potential to volunteer and/or gain work experience with external agencies. These opportunities will strengthen and diversify your skills, experience and your CV. You’ll enhance your logical and critical thinking skills, developing the use of sound arguments and explore multiple approaches to problem solving. There are varied opportunities across the private sector, local and national governments, charities, in law or in media or the arts, as well as the potential for further study.
