On this course, you will develop an in-depth understanding of how and why the law is formed, how it is applied and its relationship with policy and policy-making processes at national, European and international levels. Focusing on how law relates to individuals, society and the global arena, this programme explores in depth such issues as: the operation and application of the law across all levels of society, particularly race, disability, gender, orientation, religion and age; the development of a significant body of discrimination and equalities law in the UK; the important relationship between the UK law and the laws of the European Union and the European Convention on Human Rights, particularly the protection of human rights; the tackling of security threats and the management of migration and asylum; the impact of an increasing body of international and European law on the UK e.g. in counter-terror policy, the provision of healthcare, respect for family life and the free movement of persons. For information on fees for this course please see our online prospectus information.
You will normally have a UK honours degree (or international equivalent) at a minimum of 2.2 in either a law or relevant humanities or social-science based discipline. Alternatively, you will have a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), or a related postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification recognised as the equivalent to at least a lower 2nd class degree. Other qualifications or work experience may be acceptable if the applicant can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at honours degree standard.
