Law, human rights and social justice are terms that reflect key elements of law in our modern state - the way in which individuals are protected and interact on issues such as immigration, housing and state benefits. This programme, as a qualifying Law Degree, will appeal to those who wish to focus on these and related issues in the legal profession, as well as to those seeking a career in non-legal roles in housing, immigration, social welfare, charities and the voluntary sector. Our students have an excellent track record of employment and of gaining places on further training courses.
