Law

The LLB Law at Manchester is a specialised undergraduate law degree, which will enable you to develop the skills, knowledge and professional network to be highly employable, whether you have ambitions to practise law or enter a different field of work. You will learn the necessary foundational subjects of a qualifying law degree, as well as being able to choose from the extensive range of optional units offered by our diverse team of law, criminology and ethics specialists. Studying at one of the UK's most international universities means you will be given opportunities to develop connections with legal practitioners and industry professionals from across the world. Our commitment to improving our local communities will further expose you to the real impact of our work and research, and offer unique opportunities to develop the awareness and practical experience needed to forge your own career. **Aims** The course aims to provide you with an understanding of law as an academic discipline, at a breadth and depth appropriate to a first degree qualification, and to satisfy the Academic Stage of training for the General Council of the Bar and the Law Society of England and Wales. You will gain a strong grounding in the basic principles and rules of English Law and European Law and an understanding of legal principles and rules in other legal systems, as well as an appreciation of the responsibilities of lawyers to the courts, the legal profession, the community and individuals within them. We also help you to develop a range of legal and transferable skills, and a broad understanding of society and of the role of law within society. You will be offered the chance to develop these skills and understanding during your studies and in the context of meeting members of the law profession and international staff, students and visiting speakers. You will also have the opportunity to apply to study abroad in your third year as an additional year of study. **Special Features** **Legal Advice Centre** Gain insights into the legal profession, whilst helping members of the public with real life legal issues by volunteering at the Legal Advice Centre.
