Law

Overview

Two students consult books in the Law library.Our LLB (Hons) Law degree prepares you for a career in the legal profession, fulfilling the academic stage of training required to become a solicitor or barrister.

You will develop a firm understanding of key legal principles and institutions, as well as the fundamentals of national, European and international laws, while you train and practice your mooting skills. There is also the exciting opportunity to offer free-of-charge legal advice to real clients through our Pro-Bono Law Clinic.

If you would prefer to combine the study of key legal principles with either politics or an exploration of the causes of crime, we also offer qualifying Law with Politics and Law with Criminology programmes, as well as a non-qualifying Criminology and Law degree.

Facilities

Law and Psychology building.

The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the Department of Law and Criminology.

The three-storey building includes a 250-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.

Elsewhere on campus, there is a mooting room (a mock courtroom) where Policing and Law students can train and practice their advocacy skills and cross-examination techniques, as well as preparing for giving evidence in court.

The EHU Police Training and Simulation Facility, part of which is furbished as a police station, is used to simulate a wide range of crime scenes. This will enable Law and Policing students to work together in areas such as gathering and analysing evidence, including forensic evidence at crime scenes, as well as practicing interview techniques used by the police through role play, while also ensuring that the rights of suspects are upheld.

Open Days and Virtual Events

A prospective student and her parents speak to a member of staff during an open day.If you are considering studying at Edge Hill University, the best way we usually recommend to gain an insight into the student experience is to see our stunning campus for yourself by attending an open day.

Our August 2020 open day is going virtual. We will ensure that you can still discover everything that Edge Hill University has to offer and get answers to all of your questions. You will be able to find out more about law and the University through a series of online activities.

We are continuing to take bookings for subsequent open days while monitoring government advice regarding events. We will communicate all key information to anyone who books to attend.
