Law

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.
