About the course

A specialised and truly unique course with a 12-month placement in Westminster, this hands-on programme will give you an in-depth understanding of law and the political system. You’ll learn to ‘think like a lawyer’, undertake legal research and apply your knowledge of legal and political science to broad social problems and challenges. The first two years of the programme are based in Hull, where you’ll study the concept of law, legal phenomena, and legal systems, combined with the study of political history, UK parliamentary institutions, comparative institutions, political theory, electoral systems, and comparative politics. In year 3, you’ll get unparalleled access to the Houses of Parliament, and gain first-hand experience of law making, working for an MP, Peer or a Parliamentary official.

Studying this course at Hull opens doors of opportunity to those considering a career in government or legal practice. Our graduates are well known throughout the major UK political parties. In fact, we have so many graduates now working in Westminster that they’ve affectionately become known as ‘the Hull Mafia.’
