I don't study law but I do have a module in law.
We study the different aspects of law such as tort law/civil law/criminal law and law&legal process. We learn about citations and how court cases are worded which I found quite interesting. As part of an assignment, we had to go to a magistrate and crown court so you of course learn the difference between the two. We mainly focus on criminal law and sentencing in criminal court procedures. Also learn how evidence is broken down into categories. We had another assignment on a rape case and we had to conclude whether we feel the man is guilty or not based on the evidence presented, that was quite fun.
I don't know much help this is but yeah. Would be best for you to have a look at the modules on the unis you're interested in. The 3/4 years will be broken down and it'll show you exactly what you'll be learning in that time

Every qualifying law degree requires for you to have studied the seven foundation modules: criminal, contract, constitutional & administrative, EU, land, equity & trusts, tort. Alongside these modules, your university may require you to study some other modules, perhaps career or legal practice modules. The rest then will be optional modules which you choose according to your taste and perhaps career aspirations. Such modules might be family law, commercial, Sharia law (depending on the uni), and many other options.
