The UCLan Law degree provides the essential training – delivered by professionally qualified academics - that you need to go on and become a successful solicitor or barrister - and it’s truly fascinating. You’ll learn about ground-breaking research topics like war crimes trials and women in prison from leading academics – and because of their experience in the field, you’ll also get a good practical grounding in how the law operates and how legal practices work. Weekly seminar support and regular catch-ups with your dedicated academic advisor will ease you into university-level study - we’ll give you all the support you need to become a highly employable, knowledgeable legal professional.
Full-time: three years (four years with sandwich year); Part-time: usually four years or five years with honours.

Please note: This course is currently under review; modules are subject to change.
We recognise that every student’s journey is a unique one and with this in mind we have designed our course to be as flexible as possible to enable students to tailor their degree towards subjects and pathways that interest them.
The pathways are guidance for students, to show which particular modules complement particular interests. If a pathway is chosen in year 2, this does not prevent a student deciding to take a different pathway in year 3.
In fact, we recognise that whilst some students want guidance on which modules are most suited to their ultimate career area, some students do not want to follow any one particular pathway, and that is fine, the flexibility of our course allows them to make completely free choices of modules from any of the pathways.
Full guidance is provided to each student during the first year of study, before any decisions are made about whether to follow a pathway or which pathway to follow.

Please note that this course is subject to review/validation which may result in changes to the course structure. Any changes as a result of the review/validation will be immediately included and highlighted in the course documentation and all students holding current offers will be provided with a comprehensive list of those changes. If you are not satisfied with the changes, you will be offered the opportunity to withdraw from the programme and, if required, reasonable support to transfer to another provider.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
