University of Gloucestershire Law
Make It as a career-ready graduate
Explore the fundamental principles of law in England and Wales on a qualifying law degree recognised by both the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. You will gain solid grounding in the key areas such as legal methods and skills, constitutional law, criminal law and property law. You can also specialise in a range of subjects including family law, media and entertainment law, company law and human rights, depending on your area of interest. Throughout your degree you will learn how to argue a case effectively in court, interview clients and negotiate agreements, benefitting from simulated trials and tribunals in our Moot Court Room. Alongside this, our Make It business experiences are designed to ensure that you stand out from the crowd when you graduate.
Make It international: in your second year of study you will have the opportunity to visit some of the major international legal institutions based in Europe. Gain rare insights, first-hand, into some of the highest level of international legal proceedings. You could hear a live case being argued, witness a crimes against humanity trial, and there’ll be a rare opportunity to have lectures and talks from lawyers and senior officials. Having global exposure will help you stand out in the job market, no matter whether you plan to have an international career or not. For this vital reason, this incredible trip is included in the cost of your fees.
Make It real: learn from people who have been there and done it. Solicitors in private practice, barristers, judges and in-house lawyers from large organisations such as HSBC and NATO will deliver inspiring lectures and give you real insight. You can also visit the Supreme Court, Inns of Court, Parliament and city law firms. Real world application is embedded throughout your degree and you can take part in simulated trials and tribunals as well as mooting competitions. The School of Law also runs a Law clinic where students have the opportunity to shadow a solicitor offering legal advice. All focused on perfectly preparing you for when you graduate.
