Law with European Legal Systems

The LLB (Hons) in Law with European Legal Systems offers an exciting opportunity to combine a qualifying law degree with a broader educational and cultural experience through a year studying at another European law faculty. This is a four year programme with a year abroad in the third year. The programme can be tailored to your interests, including the study of French or Spanish. If you do not have a foreign language you can study at one of our partner law faculties across Europe where law modules are taught in English. These modules will allow you to develop your understanding of European and International Law. We currently have links with universities in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Slovakia and Slovenia. If you have previously studied French at A level (or equivalent), you can take French language tuition throughout the first and second year. You can then study at one of our partner French law faculties. You can choose to study fully in French, or combine modules offered in English with some in French. If you have previously studied Spanish at A Level you can take Spanish language tuition and study at one of our partner Spanish law faculties. You can choose to study fully in Spanish, or combine modules offered in English with some in Spanish. 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. 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. At the end of your four year degree, you will obtain an English qualifying law degree and also have a very good understanding of the European legal system, plus a wide range of transferable skills, making this course an attractive prospect for those intending to enter the legal profession. **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 EU Law, 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** You will spend your third year studying abroad at one of our partner law schools in Europe. **Year 4** In your fourth 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.
