Course content

During this one-year course, you will study the seven foundation subjects and complete a research project.

You will also have the opportunity to enhance your studies with a broad range of extra-curricular activities. You can take part in a mooting competition, where a point of law is debated in a simulated court hearing, with the finals judged by judges or barristers. The Law Society also holds negotiation, client interviewing, mediation and legal triathlon competitions, the finals of which have been hosted by law firms.

You could make a difference in the local community, working for the public good (pro bono) with the UEA Law Clinic. Our students have recovered millions of pounds for welfare benefits claimants wrongly denied payments. We have won the national LawWorks Best Partnership in Pro Bono award no fewer than four times.

We believe practical and careers experience is extremely valuable and we’ve developed a programme of opportunities tailored specifically to the needs of our postgraduate students, including placement opportunities. You can also attend careers panels, commercial awareness workshops, mock job interviews, and many other events organised by the UEA Law School and the Careers Service. And you could ‘marshal’, spending a day on the bench with a judge during a trial. You could benefit from the alumni-mentoring scheme, where UEA Law School graduates offer career mentoring to individual students.
