Course Information

Please describe your course covering all or some of the following areas: course/application requirements, the enrolment process, course duration, course content, subjects covered.

I applied through UCAS at my Sixth Form. The requirements were ABB at the time. In the first two years I studied the core modules which were, Constitutional & Administrative Law, Contract Law, Criminal Law, Equity & Trusts, European Community Law, Land Law and Tort Law. In the third year, electives I chose were Competition Law, Commercial Law, IP Law, Child and Family Law and Employment Law. I didn't have to do a dissertation as it was an option!!!

Why did you choose this course?

Course Reputation

With regards to learning, what did you gain from your course? Subjects/lectures you most enjoyed and why

I enjoyed Employment, Equity and Trusts and Commercial Law were my favourite modules because the lecturers who taught the respective subjects were also in practice in those fields. Therefore, there was a good mix of theory with practical insight.

Please tell us how you felt about class sizes, teaching quality, diversity, student support

The seminar classes were reasonably small, allowed it easy to engage with peers and tutor.

The types of facilities available and how they helped with your experience

The Law library had numerous journal articles and a good selection of books. Computer service throughtout the uni is excellent, throughout my three years there I never had difficulty accessing a computer.

Socially what was available on campus and off campus? Were there any student groups available such as the student union? Were there any networking opportunities to help you after your course

The uni held Law Fairs, whereby various magic circle law firms came on campus and this provided an excellent opportunity to network with representatives as well as create a good impression for potential employers.
