Llb law with spanish law

Hello,

Regarding university degrees, I am interested in taking an LLB Law degree with Spanish Law, at either Kings or some other place (such as Oxford)
My question is whether this degree will also teach you how to speak the appropriate language (in this case Spanish as the degree is "WITH SPANISH LAW")

This is basically my question! Any students that have done this degree, or know, it would be extremely appreciated if you could quickly give me a heads up on whether they teach the language as well. If so, to what level of fluency?

Thanks

Uni’s like Sheffield who run this course require A Level Spanish. especially given that doing Spanish law means you need to know all the Spanish terminology which will be pointless if you have no previous spanish. Also Kings requires an A in Spanish A level and 2 years of the course are spent at a uni in Barcelona. I’m not sure of any unis that would offer this without having a level Spanish as they’d have to teach you the entire language just so you have an understanding of legal terminology.
IIRC, some universities, such as Warwick, offer the option to spend a year abroad studying a non-UK legal system in English, but AFAIK most degrees in law plus the law of (a non-UK jurisdiction) require a high level of ability in the language of the non-UK jurisdiction, and the year (or more) abroad is spent at a university in that jurisdiction, being taught in the local language.

My nephew started at Oxford doing Jurisprudence, but his French was good enough for him to switch to Law with French law and spend a year studying in Paris. Before doing so, he had to satisfy the Fellow and Tutor in French at his college and a French lawyer who is a Fellow of another college that his (my nephew's) French was of a sufficient standard.

If you haven't studied Spanish to A Level or IB higher level, you could maybe take some external courses to get your Spanish up to the requisite standard. My daughter starts Jurisprudence at Oxford in October and is currently working on her French (she has IB French at lower level), and taking an exam in French next month. This is to give her the chance of studying French law at undergraduate or graduate level and/or of obtaining a stage at the ECJ or the European Commission or the ECtHR (she has an EU passport) after she graduates.

Hi, I currently have an offer for the Law with Spanish Law course at Kings. When I spoke to lectures I was initially worried about this too but we basically do the two years of law modules that every other Law student does but we also have additional law modules in Spanish that is of Spanish Law in preparation of doing the Grado en Derecho. And I believe non-native speakers are offered Spanish lessons but regardless Kings offers free language lessons to any of their students. Just a reminder I am not a student there yet, this is what I learnt at the offer holder day :smile:

Oh and obviously this is all dependent in achieving an A in Spanish at A-level
