Why study Law?

Studying Law gives students an understanding of the role of Law in today's society and raises their awareness of the rights and responsibilities of individuals. Students will debate and discuss key issues about topics that affect all of us every day, such as how laws are made and applied, how disputes are remedied and the mechanisms that are in place to keep the law consistent and just. By learning about legal rules and how and why they apply to real life, students also develop their analytical ability, decision making, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. They will develop their extended writing and presentation skills as well as their ability to offer supported argument using a variety of methods. All these skills are highly sought after by higher education and employers both within and outside the legal professions.
