Law

Law provides the framework for modern society, impacting on all our lives, so if you have an enquiring and analytical mind, a stimulating and thought-provoking Law course at Winchester could be for you.

 

Law INTRODUCTION

Law at Winchester is taught through skills-based learning. You will learn how to: master a negotiation, conduct a mediation, interview a client effectively and become proficient in legal research. You will perfect your communication skills through mooting (presenting an argument to defeat your opponent in court) in our new moot courtroom, where you may find yourself discussing anything from third-party rights when downloading music, to workplace discrimination. Our close links with the legal profession enrich your experience.

You will have the opportunity to undertake ‘pro bono’ legal advice work in our Legal Advice Centre and attend workshops run by practising solicitors and barristers. Your studies will give you the ideal foundation to go on to complete the vocational stage of training required to become a solicitor or a barrister. Law graduates are also highly valued in many industries including management, finance, HR, education, local and central government and the voluntary sector.

"I was given the opportunity over the summer after my second year to do a micro-placement, which the University sorted for me. I was in a law firm for a month, which has completely shaped my career path because now I’m going to court with a lot of the lawyers there and I get to shadow them. I’m still in regular contact with a lot of the people from my placement which has opened many doors for me." Annie, Law Student
