The BA Law with French Degree at Aberystwyth University has been designed to meet the need for a generation of lawyers equipped both legally and linguistically to deal with the legal business. This programme combines the expertise of the Department of Law and Criminology with that of the Department of Modern Languages. It will also provide you with a high level of competence in the French language, and a good understanding of the culture. You will benefit from the experience and enthusiasm of the expert staff in both departments. Many of the staff at the Department of Law and Criminology also practiced as barristers or solicitors, thus providing a practical application to your theoretical studies.

During the four years of this course, you will have a selection of core and optional modules that you will have to study. Some of the modules on this course could grant you exemption from certain professional examinations. Check out the module tab to see which modules grant you the exemption.
The Department of Law and Criminology is a research-active. The research that is conducted in the department feeds directly into the teaching of our undergraduate courses. Some of our esteemed teaching staff are active researchers for large organisations e.g. GRETA, the Country Side Commission for Wales, the Youth Justice Board, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
There is a wide range of expertise available within the Department of Modern Languages and this is reflected in the module choices we offer. Students could choose modules on linguistics (both modern and historical); dialectical (the study of different forms of French, past, and present); literature; the history of ideas and artistic movements; literary representations of Paris, travel literature and current affairs.
For all students in the Department of Law and Criminology, life after university is important to us. During the four years of this degree, you will have the opportunity to visit various employment events where you will meet and have the opportunity to network with the legal industry.

For students who are studying Law through the medium of Welsh, we also offer a Welsh medium Mooting.

Aber is so amazing! The academic staff are brilliant, really helpful and encouraging to make you think outside the box, the uni is right next to a lovely coastline, so everyone goes down to the beach when the sun’s out to relax – a highlight of the year. The nightlife is also great, loads of bars in town and everyone’s up for it – you end up not needing the union (besides the legendary Bierkeller) after first year, there’s so much on in town.
