About the course

Learn to think like a lawyer and discover the law for yourself through arguing, writing, and critical thinking. This hands-on programme not only gives you a sophisticated, traditional understanding of the law, but allows you to put your theory in to practice, engaging with real-world problems and case studies. Our flexible degree allows you to specialise, take a general route, or choose an extra year abroad to graduate in European Legal Studies. In the final year, students can take the Law Clinic module and gain mentored work experience, providing legal advice to real clients.

Studying Law at Hull gives you the opportunity to get involved in a wealth of extracurricular activities. The Student Law Society runs an extensive programme of competitions in mooting, negotiating and client interviewing. Students can also get involved working in the editorial team of the Student Law Journal, to further develop knowledge and skills. For students who do not have the traditional entry requirements for direct entry on to the degree, we offer Law with a Foundation Year, and Law with Foundation English, which is tailor-made for non-native English speakers to help you meet our English language requirements.
