Law and History

All undergraduate LLB Law programmes offered by the College of Law and Criminology are designated as qualifying law degrees for the purposes of eligibility for the vocational stage of legal training Legal Practice Course [solicitors] and Bar Professional Training Course [barristers]). A distinctive feature of our programmes is that all the compulsory foundation modules required for a qualifying law degree are completed during the first two years of study (levels one and two), which leaves our students with a wide range of choices during their final year (level three). The benefit of this approach is that it gives our students the autonomy to choose from an impressive array of optional modules thereby enabling them to tailor their degree to their interests, career plans and strengths. In effect, students are provided with the opportunity to create for themselves quite a specialist law degree, one that will demonstrate, to the outside world, their commitment to a particular area of law. by studying the Joint Honours Programme law and history it will provide students with an opportunity to compliment their legal studies by pursuing a wide range of history modules which reflect the diverse interests of staff within the history department. As disciplines, law and history are often complimentary in the sense that legal rules are often a reflection of the prevailing societal norms at the time the relevant law was created. Students may opt to study a range of subjects, including modules focused on medieval, early modern and modern history.
