About this program

Law with Welsh

This unique course will give you the skills and knowledge necessary in Wales’ bilingual society to take up important legal roles where the ability to perform with equal ability in Welsh and English is essential. With the passing of the Government of Wales Acts 1998 and 2006, legislation enacted by the Senedd Cymru or Welsh Parliament must be published bilingually. This has generated a huge demand within Wales not only for lawyers who can competently read and understand both versions of the text, but who can also contribute to the bilingual drafting of the legislation.

The course is designed to foster your intellectual independence. You’ll be supported to develop the confidence and skills needed to think critically, to ask and answer cogent questions about law and its role in society, and to effectively communicate your reasoned arguments, orally or in writing.

You will acquire new knowledge and understanding of the principles and values of law and justice, and you’ll learn how law can be used to benefit individuals and societies, including the most marginalised in our community.

During the course you will study the fundamental areas of legal knowledge. For example, Public Law where you’ll learn about how the country is organised and run; Criminal Law which includes examining punishment and the rehabilitation of individuals who break the law, and Contract Law where you’ll learn about how legal agreements are made and operate between people and companies. In addition to this you will have the opportunity to study topics such as Llenyddiaeth Gyfoes, Barddoniaeth Fodern and Y Sgrin Fach Cymraeg.

Career paths

With a growing demand for bilingual graduates, a Bangor Law degree opens up exciting career paths in law and in many other rewarding areas where you can make a difference to people's lives as well as to Welsh society.

Throughout your studies you’ll acquire the academic knowledge and be introduced to the skills needed to pursue a legal career should you wish to go on to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. You may wish to work in the public sector as a Welsh Government lawyer or with a local authority. Or in the private sector specialising in commercial law, immigration law or criminal law. This degree is recognised by the Bar Council of India.

If you don’t want to practise as a solicitor or barrister, you may still wish to work in an area where your legal training would be advantageous and where you can work to make a positive difference. Many statutory bodies such as the Welsh Language Commissioner and the Older People’s Commissioner for Wales and the Children’s Commissioner for Wales require people with legal backgrounds to work as policy officers, campaigners and advice workers. International organisations, such as the United Nations offer tremendous opportunities to those who are looking for an international career.

As an LLB Law graduate, you will be able to pursue career opportunities in a wide range of other areas, not necessarily connected to the law but for which the general and intellectual skills acquired during a law degree make you extremely well qualified. These may include the civil service, journalism, the media and creative industries, the probation service, the police and the prison service - where demand for bilingual graduates is high.

At Bangor we work hard to ensure you become aware of the many opportunities that lie ahead thanks to the University’s Skills and Employability Service, the School’s Employability Officer who assists in finding students work experience, including internships and placements and the Student Volunteering Office that offers many opportunities to work with the local community.
