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 EU 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 dual honours degrees offer great choice and flexibility to fit with a variety of future career choices (the dual honours degrees are not qualifying law degrees). Dual honours students can currently combine legal study with one of over 30 possible other subjects. The leading combinations that work particularly well in terms of disciplinary coherence and career aspirations, and ones which are most popular among current students are Business Management, Criminology, Sociology, Philosophy and Politics.
