Law

Let's deliver more than just legal advice. Let's deliver a safer society.

Progress onto a successful legal career with one of our qualifying law degrees; validated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and the Bar Standards Board. We offer the highly regarded LLB Hons Law programme, as well a range of additional law degrees with specialisms.

Gain a sound and practical understanding of how the law operates and how the legal systems work. Our degrees incorporate plenty of work experience opportunities, national and international educational field trips and with our affiliation with Preston Crown Court, you’ll be able to go behind the scenes and gain knowledge and experience in how the courts operate. Many of our students pursue roles as a solicitor or barrister while others may move into roles within criminal law or business and management.

You’ll engage with voluntary agencies such as Victim Support, the Citizens Advice Bureau and local charities, as well as undertaking placements with various law firms and public bodies such as Lancashire County Council. You’ll also have opportunities to build practical legal experience and deal with real life cases through our Pro Bono Clinic, Business Law Clinic and Mediation Clinic.
