In an increasingly globalised world having an international perspective is vital. This course will allow you to study other legal systems whilst understanding the written and unwritten rules governing relations between states. You will also study international law’s increased relevance to individuals through human rights and personal liability for international crimes.
This course offers a qualifying law degree that is recognised by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority. It will enable you to progress to the vocational stage of legal training if you aim to become a barrister or solicitor.
Throughout this degree you will not just study the law but will participate in ‘Law in action’ to gain essential practical experience whilst developing the skills employers value most. Practical experience will be achieved through participation in national and international competitions, mock sessions at the Kingston Law Courts, assisting the Legal Advice Centre and through the core elements of the course: professional experience and the professional readiness programme.
