Law

Law

Law, or legal studies, comes into contact with almost every area of human life, touching upon issues relating to business, economics, politics, the environment, human rights, international relations and trade. It is telling that the first academic degrees developed were all related to law. As a law student, you can expect to learn how to tackle some of the most problematic – indeed, often seemingly irresolvable – conflicts and issues in modern society and morality. In providing a framework through which to examine and understand different societies and cultures, law degrees are a useful way to prepare not only for specific legal careers, but for a broad range of professional roles – and indeed, for life in general.

Good to Know

Qualifying law degrees are LLB degrees. A BA, is not a qualifying law degree.

Law degrees normally only qualify you for the country you are studying i in. There are an increasing number of international or transnational law degrees that give you the potential ability to qualify in either a choice of countries or more than one.
