This cutting edge programme is taught by lecturers with frontline experience, focusing on ‘the now’ and key issues that face contemporary society. This means that you will be discussing issues that are both real and relevant to your own life.
Graduates can use course as an opportunity to undertake formal legal training, teacher training, or choose postgraduate study in related areas. Additionally, the Solicitor's Regulation Authority recognises modules within the top‐up degree as exempt from the graduate diploma in Law or common professional examination which is the direct entry to the academic training required for solicitors or barristers.
