    Course Summary

    The University of Essex’s law LLB will help you to gain a much more in-depth understanding of one or more areas of special study. In addition, this program includes a ‘foundation year’ which will ensure that you have a thorough academic background in all relevant areas of the law. This will ensure that you gain the most benefit from the remaining three years of study.

    You’ll move on to develop a critical understanding of the law, and the ability to appreciate it from the economic, social and political perspectives. You’ll learn not just the rules and regulations, but the policy context in which they were laid down, and the philosophy with which they are interpreted. As you move beyond the basics, you might study advanced topics like Evidence, Human Rights, Judges and Judging, Music and Intellectual Property Law or even Investigating Miscarriages of Justice.

    The University of Essex’s law school specialises in Human Rights Law, Public Law and Commercial Law. The QS World University Rankings for 2018 puts them within the top 200 law departments worldwide, and they are currently ranked within the top 20 among UK mainstream universities according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
