    Course Summary

    This is a 3 year qualifying law degree. Not only does it cover the basic tenets of English law, it will take students towards an advanced specialty that matches their abilities and interests. This blend of academic and practical instruction is highly desirable to employers both in and outside the legal profession.

    The University of Nottingham’s BA in Law shares the same core curriculum as their Law LLB, and is similar enough to all of their 4-year law programs that a student may easily transition from any one to any other within their first 2 years of study. However, this is a competitive process, and not all transfers will be approved.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This is a three year program for most students.

    Year 1:

    Year 1 begins with the core curriculum of law. Modules will include Public Law, the Law of Contract, Understanding Law and several optional modules from outside the School of Law.

    Year 2:

    You will spend year 2 studying Criminal Law, Foundations of Tort and Land Law, and again several options selected from non-law subjects.

    Year 3:

    If you stay with this degree path, your final core modules are currently the Law of Trusts and the Law of the EU (though that may change). Again, you’ll take optional modules according to your specialty and interests as well.

    If, instead, you transfer to a 4 year program at this time, your third year will be spent in one of the overseas law schools with which the University of Nottingham has developed partnerships. You would then return to Nottingham for your fourth year, as described in that program.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Nottingham is perhaps unique in its approach to learning and teaching in 2 ways:

    • First, it has a bespoke online teaching environment called Moodle, as well as an IT research and advisory resource called Gartner.
    • Second, it offers a heavy focus on ESD (Education for Sustainable Development), which can be accessed through different modules, internships and extra-curricular activities.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree gives you not only a qualifying law degree, but specialised training in an area of your choice. Many graduates of the program go on to study law in more depth, particularly those who wish to work as solicitors (taking the Legal Practice Course) or as barristers (taking the Bar Professional Training Course).

    Others seek to use their legal expertise to enhance their role in their area(s) of special study, and are highly sought after for the additional skills they bring with them.

    Entry & Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU Students:

    Applicants must have achieved 3 A Levels at AAA or higher. None of the qualifying A Levels can have been in Critical Thinking or General Studies. In addition, no more than one of those qualifying A Levels should be in a practical or non-traditional subject.
    All applicants must take the Law National Aptitude Test.

     

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non EU)students:

    Non-EU students from overseas are welcome to apply for this program. They must demonstrate academic certification that is at least equivalent to that required for UK and EU students. Overseas applicants must take the Law National Aptitude Test as well.

    They must also pass English language test such as the IELTS. They must have achieved an overall score of 7.0, and at least 7.0 in each indivudual tested element (or the equivalent).
