On Law with Politics you will learn about the theory and practice of law and develop an understanding of its social, political, historical and comparative contexts. Practical opportunities to develop you skills include client interviewing, mooting (practising oral arguments) and as a Community Legal Companion with our innovative CLOCK programme.

You will explore the importance of politics in society, considering the development of political policy and the principles of freedom and equality. This degree will provide excellent preparation for a wide range of careers. You’ll study both law and politics as distinct subjects, but you’ll consider where they intersect as disciplines.
