University of Westminster

Course Introduction

This course encourages an interest in the European dimension of law. With this Qualifying Law Degree, graduates wishing to become barristers or solicitors are granted exemptions by the professional bodies, having satisfied Law Society and Bar Council requirements and spent a year studying law in another European jurisdiction. The course combines legal study with legal skills; when you apply you will need to show an aptitude for European language study (not necessarily a formal qualification).

Course Modules

First year modules cover contract, tort, public and criminal law, and legal skills and process. In the second year you will study legal profession and legal services, land law, EU law, equity and trusts, and civil law and legal systems. In both years you will also study a European language module. Following a year studying abroad, in your final year you will complete your dissertation in European legal studies, and choose two options modules from a wide range including clinical legal practice, company law, commercial law, competition law, criminal procedure and evidence, disability law, entertainment law, environmental law, family law, human rights, intellectual property, employment law, international trade law, international law and global justice, media law, new legal thinking, advanced criminal law, and religion, law and society.
