Law

In order to qualify as a legal practitioner, you will need a qualifying degree and post graduate training. All three of our LLB programmes provide the qualifying degree you need. You will start your degree by establishing the building blocks of legal knowledge. At the same time, you will begin to cultivate important skills, such as reasoning, research and writing, formulating convincing arguments, negotiating and working as part of a team. The point of legal study is not simply to memorise the law, but to be able to engage with it skillfully. As such, many of the skills you will develop are transferrable and will be valuable to you within or beyond a career in law. In your second and third years you will tailor your degree by choosing modules that suit your interests. Our semesterised modular system means that core modules are a semester long, not year long, allowing you to study more broadly. You will also have many opportunities to build your skills, confidence and professional CV with extra-curricular activities. You could, for example, complete an internship at a law firm. Or you could ‘marshal’, spending a day on the bench with a judge during a trial. You could benefit from the alumni-mentoring scheme, where UEA Law School graduates offer career mentoring to individual students. Or you could make a difference in the local community, working for the public good (pro bono). In less than five years, our students have recovered no less than £2.5 million for welfare claimants wrongly denied payments. In 2014 we won the prestigious LawWorks Best Partnership in Pro Bono award in 2014. You can also have fun, build your profile and hone valuable skills by joining in UEA Law Society activities. As well as social events, these include junior and senior mooting contests where a point of law is debated in a simulated court hearing. Finals are held in real courts where they are judged by real judges or barristers. The Law Society also holds negotiation, client interviewing, mediation and legal triathlon competitions, the finals of which are hosted by law firms. In 2016 the UEA Law Society won LawCareers.Net award for ‘Best Pro Bono’ activities. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In your first year you will establish a solid grounding in the subjects necessary to qualify for legal practice. These include Constitutional and Administrative Law, Criminal Law, and Contract Law. You will also attend the Law School’s Skills Development workshops. You will develop important legal skills such as legal reasoning, research and writing, as well as career management skills. **Year 2** In your second year you will study Land Law, Trusts Law, and Tort Law before you begin tailoring your degree by choosing modules that suit your interests. You will also continue to benefit from Skills Development Workshops. **Year 3** In your third year you will choose from a wide range of optional modules. These currently include, amongst others, Company Law, Competition Law, Employment Law, Family Law, International Humanitarian & Refugee Law, Public International Law, Internet Law, Law and Medicine and Miscarriages of Justice. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
