Introduction

Whether you are thinking of studying Law as an undergraduate degree or as part of a graduate conversion course, this course is designed to set you on the right path to achieving your ambitions. The course also encourages development in wider skills essential to the successful study and practice of the law, including communication, academic writing, critical thinking and knowledge of current affairs.

The Project

As with all of our Gap Year subjects, the Law course focuses on the production of an extended piece of writing that the student must research and produce independently under the guidance of our tutors. Typically this consists of a thesis on a specific topic within the law, often an area of controversy or something featuring heavily in the news, although there is scope for producing something other than a thesis. Possible thesis titles and topics include:

  • The UK’s uncodified constitution and the separation of powers: who really holds the power in the UK?
  • Brexit: The legal case for and against Britain’s exit from the EU
  • Euthanasia: reconciling legal, moral and ethical values
  • The development of the law from ancient times to the present
  • Topics Covered

Following an initial Orientation Week, tutoring at our International Study Centre begins. This phase introduces the student to some of the fundamental areas of the law, covering the following modules:

  • Introduction to Law and the English Legal System
  • Contract Law
  • The Law of Tort
  • Criminal Law
  • Constitutional Law
  • Legal Skills
This school offers programs in:
  • English
