More law resources on TSR
Hey, I’m doing law in September and didn’t do it at alevel. (I did sociology, English lit and healthcare)law doesn’t require specific alevels so do what you enjoy/ can get a good grade in Also professors will teach assuming you have no prior knowledge of the subject.
Hi everyone, I am new to this page and would appreciate any answers, so my question is what is the law course like at Uni, in particular Brighton? And I currently study sociology, criminology and English at A level and was wondering also if it is a disadvantage if i dont study law at A level?
I did Law at Brighton but switched to sociology. Not so much the course, it just wasn't for me!
Good luck in all your exams!
My friend who was aiming for a place at a top law school was told at all of her open days to not study A level Law as it is actually kinda taught wrong, so it’s more work for them and you in first year to get it right rather than not take a level law and come in with a blank slate and nothing taught the way they don’t want it. So yeah, go for it. But do you mean Brighton uni or Sussex? They’re 2 different unis and Brighton is more creative. Sussex is much higher ranked with better quality of education and teaching.
At Sussex, you’re taught by research-active faculty and will join a vibrant community with an active student law body. You may undertake training to offer legal advice to the public (under supervision) and, through the Sussex Law Clinics, you can gain valuable work experience of the law in action before you graduate. We also have links with leading law firms that sponsor our student competitions in national and international mooting, criminal advocacy, client interviewing, negotiation, mediation and legal debating.
The University of Sussex is in the Top 20 in the UK for Law (Times Higher Education World University Rankings by Subject 2021), which makes Sussex an institution worthy of consideration and indicates our quality of teaching. Please have a look at the Law LLB course page to see the courses in more detail. You can also talk to one of our Student Ambassadors online via the Unibuddy Chat Platform to learn more about their experience studying at Sussex.
The University of Sussex is incredibly diverse, with students and staff coming from over 100 different countries. We have more than 200 societies and clubs to choose from (Sports, Societies & Media) and the Student Union is always putting on events where you can find like-minded people and try something new. The campus is surrounded by the South Downs National Park where you can take walks and relax, and the lively city of Brighton is less than 10 mins away from the campus via a train so it's easily accessible to get into town. On-campus, we also have a number of shops, bars and cafes run by the Student Union.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
