You will study foundation elements of legal theory, and your independent research project will give you the opportunity to focus on an area of law that interests you. Taught by experienced tutors, including qualified solicitors and barristers with significant professional expertise in all areas of law, the breadth of knowledge and skills in Laws of England and Wales from Leeds Beckett University will ensure you receive specialist support on a wide variety of topics, from medical negligence to anti-terrorism law.
Legal education and training has been subject to a detailed review by professional regulators in the legal sector. The review has examined the routes to qualification as a solicitor or barrister.
You could progress to the next stage of legal training by undertaking our Legal Practice Course to train as a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course to become a barrister. Your course will also open up roles that require a deep-rooted and broad knowledge of the law, such as a paralegal. You could also apply your expertise to roles in marketing, local government, mental health or social work.
