Our Law programmes are more than just law degrees. Yes, they equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a lawyer, but they do so in the corporate environment of an international FTSE 100 company.

You’ll get direct exposure to hugely successful real-world lawyers and business leaders, through regular legal workshops, termly industry conferences and an annual residential. Previous workshops and conferences have been facilitated by leading representatives from Unilever, Savills, Merrill Lynch, Direct Line Group, Holiday Extras, Atos and PA Consulting.

TOP REASONS TO CHOOSE THIS DEGREE

Explore the fascinating world of the law
• You’ll develop the legal knowledge alongside the complementary skills needed to build a successful career in law
• Our classes are taught by practicing lawyers, business leaders and leading academics.
• You’ll learn how to approach tasks in a clear and logical manner – a skill highly prized by employers
• You can choose to study a three year LLB degree or four year integrated masters.

You’ll learn from practising lawyers, business leaders and academics through workshops, guest lectures, internships and company-based mentors, as well as the more traditional lectures and seminars. The aim throughout is to give you a proper understanding of what it is to be a lawyer, whether as a barrister/solicitor or in house counsel in a large commercial company, rather than just an understanding of the law.

For example, report writing, data analysis, preparing strategies and business cases and presentations. You will also sit exams in some modules.

 

What are the entry requirements?

Our typical UCAS tariff entry is 120 points (BBB at A level) or equivalent. However, we’re really looking for people with a passion for their subject so if you do not have the UCAS tariff points you need, or traditional entry qualifications, you can still apply through our assessment-based entry route. You’ll be invited to a Professional Workshop to see if we’re the right fit for you.

What are the fees?

Full time fees are £9,250. All students that attend and pass a Creative/Professional Workshop will be awarded a partial tuition fee waiver, up to the maximum fee loan available for the programme. The workshops are a great opportunity to meet other students and get to know Pearson Business School/Escape Studios and our fee waiver can significantly reduce your tuition fees.
