**More about this course**

This law course is built around specialist commercial and financial law modules, designed to make you more employable in business and financial services fields, as well as in law. You'll develop independent research and communication skills, and learn how to argue your case in mooting competitions in our purpose'built mock courtroom.

You’ll benefit from our strong links with leading professions in law, government and business. A new collaboration with Clyde & Co and the East London Business Alliance (ELBA) will include a group mentoring programme for first'year students. If you join, you’ll be invited to a nearby law office for six interactive sessions with qualified lawyers.

You’ll also have access to our Legal Advice Clinic, which offers pro bono legal advice to staff and students at the University. The clinic runs once a week during term time, and you’ll have the opportunity to observe the legal interviewing and advising process, engage with the duty solicitor regarding case issues and accompany the relevant lawyer(s) if the case proceeds to court.

While studying, you’ll have the option to join our Law Mentoring Programme, where you’ll be paired with a postgraduate mentor who will help you develop your career. You’ll also be invited to a number of workshops, taster sessions and networking events, including our annual “Get into Law” day, featuring a panel of legal professionals.
