About the course

This two-year fast track programme is designed for those with a degree in another subject, and for lawyers from outside the UK who would like to broaden their education. You’ll study the fundamental principles of English law at undergraduate level, and this qualifying law degree is approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. You’ll put your theory in to practice and engage with real-world problems and case studies. In the final year, students can take the Law Clinic module and gain mentored work experience, providing legal advice to real clients.

Studying Law at Hull gives you the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of extracurricular activities. The Student Law Society runs an extensive programme of competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. Students can also get involved working in the editorial team of the Student Law Journal, to further develop knowledge and skills.
