What the students say

Law is a very interesting course. Lots of information to take in but if you put in the effort, you will really enjoy it!Adam Haq

Law is my favourite subject. Before I started I knew nothing about our legal system and how it works and now I can easily understand it. It is a really useful subject to have and looks good on CVs because people think you are really smart! Charlotte Wild

In Law, there is plenty of work to challenge your memory and essay writing skills, but its great once you get the hang of it. There is so much to learn and it is a very interesting and enjoyable course and without any coursework you get better exam results! Plus, Law is very highly regarded as a qualification. Phil Hall
