About the course

Our Law course helps you to discover the law for yourself, through arguing, writing and thinking critically about the law. On our flexible LLB programme you can specialise, take a general route or choose an extra year abroad to graduate in European Legal Studies.

There are three course options for studying Law at Hull. Law with a foundation year makes the study of law accessible to those who don’t have the traditional entry requirements. The foundation English language year is tailor-made for non-native English speakers, designed to help you meet the Law School’s English language entry requirements.

You will learn Contract Law, Criminal Law and EU Law as well as having the opportunity to study a variety of optional modules such as Company Law, Penology or Family Law. Final year students can take the ‘Law Clinic’ module and gain mentored, hands-on work experience providing legal advice to real clients in the Law School’s Legal Advice Centre.

The Student Law Society is responsible for running an extensive programme of competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. This provides a rewarding opportunity to learn new skills and improve confidence. In addition, students also have the opportunity to join the editorial team of the Student Law Journal. Our LLB programmes are qualifying Law degrees, approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and the Bar Standards Board.
