Work for a Member of Parliament or a peer on a 12-month placement in Westminster as part of this specialised degree.
You’ll gain in-depth exposure to British parliamentary procedures and behaviours. And a thorough understanding of law and the political system.
We provide you with much more than a degree. We’re all about preparation for your career.
Learn the legal ropes in our mock courtrooms. And working on real cases –ranging from family mediation to employment tribunals – in our Legal Advice Centre and Mediation Centre. You’ll build your experience through mini-pupillages at Wilberforce Chambers and internships with local law firms and government. And practice your legal skills in our Law Society’s mooting and client interviewing competitions.
You can rub shoulders with leading law firms at our yearly careers convention too. And you’re guaranteed a place at University of Law, which prepares students for the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE).
This course opens the doors of opportunity for careers in government or legal practice. In fact, there are so many of our graduates now working in Westminster that they’ve affectionately become known as 'the Hull Mafia'.
