Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

Keele is one of the UK’s leading law schools, with an impressive list of
alumni practising law at the highest levels. The single honours programme
is recognised as a qualifying law degree, enabling you to train as a solicitor
or barrister after graduating. Our law degree examines law in its social, political, ethical, historical
and international contexts. You’ll explore core legal subjects such as
crime, torts, contract, land, equity and public law, developing your
understanding of the rules which structure relationships between
governments and citizens, and between private individuals.

You’ll study principles and doctrines of English and European and
International law and have plenty of opportunities to develop your
practical skills. You can take part in mooting (practising oral arguments),
client interviewing, and work as a Community Legal Companion, within
the innovative CLOCK programme, which was pioneered at Keele.
Students who are interested in law but do not wish to enter the legal
professions will find our exciting range of combined honours degrees
offer great choice and flexibility to fit with a variety of future career
choices. Students taking a combined honours degree will graduate
with a BA or BSc, which is not a qualifying law degree. Popular
combinations include; Business Management, Criminology,
Philosophy and Politics.

The single honours law programme is accredited by the Solicitors
Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board as a ‘qualifying law
degree’ and thus satisfies the academic stage of legal professional
qualification. Your degree will also be of value in many other careers.
After further study or training you might work as a company secretary,
chartered accountant, tax advisor or in business. You might also
work in the police service or pursue a career with a charity or in
international relations.
