Law

You will study the subjects necessary to progress towards qualification for legal practice. These include Constitutional and Administrative Law, Criminal Law, Contract, Tort, Trusts, Land Law and EU Law. You will also develop important legal skills such as legal reasoning, research and writing – as well as key transferable skills such as negotiation and team working – by taking Law in Practice, Legal Method, Skills and Reasoning, and the English Legal Process. In your second year you will begin tailoring your degree by choosing modules that suit your interests. In your third year you will choose all of your subjects from a wide range of options, including Company Law, Competition Law, Employment Law, Family Law, International Humanitarian and Refugee Law, International Trade Law, Internet Law, Law and Medicine, and Miscarriages of Justice. You can also choose to write a dissertation under the direction of a member of faculty. You will have many opportunities to build your skills, confidence and professional CV by engaging in an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. You could: – Benefit from one of more than 50 internships arranged each year in law firms and other organisations – Be one of up to 30 UEA students each year who ‘marshal’ for judges by spending a day on the bench with a judge during a trial – Benefit from our alumni mentoring scheme, where UEA Law School graduates offer career mentoring to individual students – Connect with employers at the UEA Law Fair or at the many talks given by visitors from law firms, the Bar, business and government – Make a difference to society and gain valuable experience by working for the public good (pro bono). You could work explaining the law, giving advice or representing people in tribunals under appropriate supervision. Every year at least 200 UEA students undertake pro bono work. In less than three years our students have recovered no less than £1.5 million for welfare claimants in the appeal tribunal. This outstanding work, undertaken while working with the Norfolk Community Law Service, one of our pro bono partners, won the prestigious LawWorks Pro Bono Partnership Award in 2014, a top national award. You can also have fun, build your profile and hone valuable skills by engaging in UEA Law Society activities. As well as social events, these include junior and senior mooting contests (trials of points of law), where the finals are held in real courts and 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 the LawCareers.Net Award for ‘Best Pro Bono’ activities.
