LSE Law School

The module asks novel questions about rapidly changing, highly sophisticated technologies, their impact on society and how they risk to transform the legal profession. This module begins by looking at the colonising process before going on to introduce students to some of the ways in which the non-Western world confronted the violence and inequality of colonialism. The LLB Law is a qualifying law degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. You’ll be prepared – subject to completion of the necessary further qualifications – to practise law as a solicitor, a barrister or an in-house lawyer for a public limited company or a government agency. While it’s our aim for students to take their preferred combinations of options, this can’t be guaranteed and will be subject to timetabling.

The course has a heavy focus on primary legal materials and core critical texts, but will also draw on film, museum artefacts, art and literature as appropriate. Upon completion of the course you will have acquired a knowledge and understanding of contemporary government and key political concepts as well as major political and policy challenges facing governments and citizens. You will have a rigorous grounding in the fundamental doctrines and principles underpinning the common law and a critical understanding of modern legal developments. For international students who do not meet the direct entry requirements, for this undergraduate degree, the Royal Holloway International Study Centre offers an International Foundation Year programme designed to develop your academic and English language skills. This three-year LLB incorporates all of the compulsory modules to meet Bar Council and Law Society requirements, making it a qualifying law degree.

Law with Politics LLB Hons

The second part of the module places this legal structure in context by examining the history of homelessness provision and regulation; considering responses to homelessness in other jurisdictions and examining the regulation and perceptions of street homelessness. Students will be challenged to critically examine how personal, financial, health, and economic transactional data are managed, who has access to this information, and for what purposes. The module focuses on current issues in the law and practice of international business and trade law from critical perspectives. This includes exposing deficiencies in the regulation of international trade finance, international marketing operations, countertrade, international commercial dispute settlement mechanisms and corruption in international business. The module considers the peculiar problems that emerging business and financial jurisdictions face in their involvement in international trade. Attention will be given to specialist and emerging areas of law such as international mergers and acquisition as well as philosophical aspects of international trade such as the lex mercatoria.

  • After the Treaties of Amsterdam, Nice and Lisbon, the impact of EU law has expanded even further than before.
  • You will be responsible for keeping the client updated throughout the proceedings, learning in a safe supervised environment.

The following is a selection of optional course modules that are likely to be available. Please note that although the College will keep changes to a minimum, new modules may be offered or existing modules may be withdrawn, for example, in response to a change in staff. On graduating, you will have gained a wide variety of transferable skills, which will allow you to progress to a range of successful careers internationally, in and out of political and law-related fields, as well as to further study. UCL Political Science is recognised as a centre of excellence in the field and offers a uniquely stimulating environment for the study of legal and political theory.

For every hour spent in class, you’ll complete a further two to three hours of independent study. This time is spent reading, preparing for formal study sessions, working on projects and revising for exams. See our LLB module page for more information about our modules and how they are assessed.
