University of Exeter Law
University of Exeter Law, LLB Law
A Law degree from the University of Exeter offers a unique blend of academic rigour; including critical, theoretical and reflective dimensions; from one of the top global universities that is also a member of the prestigious Russell Group; with the excitement of experiencing the law in action.
Our programmes are taught with a legal profession-facing emphasis on substantive content that is of real-life relevance, whilst developing the academic and practical skills required by the legal profession and employers more generally. In addition, the Exeter Law School challenges its undergraduate law students to maximise their potential. We seek to further the development of its students as independent learners, researchers and problem solvers by placing greater responsibility on individual students, by way of student-centred and problem-based learning, with increased academic and other support in the structure and delivery of our programmes.
We aim to offer as many activities as possible to help broaden career development and equip students with the skills employers find most valuable. These include team building, employer visits, mooting, pro bono and skills sessions (such as advocacy and negotiation), which provide many opportunities to gain transferable skills and to meet and interact with potential employers.
Problem-based learning will help students apply what you have learned in lectures to real-world situations, while developing professional and practical skills from the very beginning of your degree. In Year 1 Law students will work in ‘syndicates’ – allocated study groups of about 12 students. You will initially be mentored by a Peer Tutor (usually a Year 2 Law undergraduate). You will have the opportunity to work on a varied case load throughout the academic year; working on your own and with all or some of the members of your syndicate.
