Law with Philosophy including Year Abroad

Our Law department is ranked among the top 200 departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017). Engage in a discourse on human rights law, informed by thinking on rights from political, sociological, philosophical, economic and historical perspectives. You are presented with the theoretical foundations, substantive knowledge, and evaluative tools for you to understand and respond to national, regional, and international legal and political developments. Our LLB Law and Human Rights develops your critical awareness of the nature of law within its social, political, sociological, philosophical, economic and historical contexts. As a law and human rights student, not only will you learn legal rules, but you will also consider the function of law in society, the philosophy of law, policy issues and law reform. In this course, your education extends beyond our University campus. The four-year version of our degree allows you to spend your third year studying abroad, while otherwise remaining identical to the three-year course. We have exchange partners across Europe, in the United States, Canada and Australia.
