Subject

Law

**On this degree, you'll learn to think like a lawyer and boost your career prospects with hands-on practical experience.**

Study at a traditional, red-brick university where law has been taught since 1927. This hands-on programme gives you a sophisticated understanding of the law. You’ll engage with real-world problems and case studies as you put your theory into practice.

- 99% of students are in work or further study six months after graduating (UK domicile full-time first degree leavers; Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, for the academic year 2016/17 published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency 2018)

- Benefit from facilities such as our mock courtroom, and from the close academic support you’ll enjoy at our small and friendly law school

- Gain hands-on experience providing legal advice to members of the public, under supervision from practising solicitors, in our Legal Advice Centre

A wealth of extracurricular activities includes the Student Law Society which runs workshops and competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. You can also get involved in the editorial team of the Student Law Journal to further develop your knowledge and skills.

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
