This is for you if you want to appeal to multi-national law firms, where having language skills, knowledge of another legal system and the experience of having lived abroad can be a distinct advantage.
In your first year You will be introduced to the core elements of law and begin studying the cultural and linguistic aspects of your chosen language. During your second year You will advance your language skills while broadening your scope of law to include Criminal Law, European Law and the Law of Tort. In your third year you will complete your Year Abroad, this is a fundamental element of our Law with a Modern Language degree, giving you the chance to study in a country related to your language choice. Please note that a year spent abroad still incurs a tuition fee, but this is much lower than for a normal year at Leicester. See our Fees and Funding section for details. In your final year, you will have greater freedom to tailor your degree around the area of law that most interests you. For further information please see our website.
Assessment methods are varied. They can include assessed essays/coursework, exams and multiple choice question papers. Professional legal writing - for example, writing a letter of advice to a client - is also built into our curriculum and you will start developing these practical skills from your very first year with us.
Application deadline details:
My teachers at Leicester were incredible, offering a really dynamic, interesting course with loads of content, contact hours and plenty of opportunity to talk to them about any problems or concerns I had. They seriously made the uni experience so much easier for me! The uni itself is great too – the halls were really high quality, the Union has a load of events on as well as cheap coffee and a great place to hang out with your mates. The whole campus is really inviting and comfy, and everyone here was friendly and welcoming! I loved it here!
I really love this university - I'm very comfortable while I'm there and I've made a lot of friends through university societies. The teaching is good - largely because you can tell everyone genuinely cares about what they're teaching you, and this is also shown with the feedback you're given. I also think Leicester is a good town to be at uni at in general - it's cheap, constantly improving, and pretty (especially the student areas).
