Course Summary:
Develop your legal knowledge and skills in a practical way, with plenty of opportunities to build real-life legal experience through pro bono work. Benefit from our practical approach to teaching, and build your legal knowledge and skills through problem-based learning projects, commercial awareness training and work-experience. You will also take part in client interviewing, negotiation and mooting competitions with work placements offered as prizes. Great importance is placed on work experience with ring-fenced opportunities for Reading students. You will have the chance to work with local charities and other organisations and further develop your practical legal skills through voluntary pro bono work. In addition, you will also have the option to qualify as a Gateway Assessor for the Citizens Advice Bureau. Our tutors include expert advisers to government and policy-makers, international organisations, and civil society organisations. 100% of our research overall was judged to be world leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised (Research Excellence Framework, 2014), which feeds directly into your learning. We host one of the largest pro bono programmes in the country, working with local charities and organisations, including Age Concern, Anti-Slavery International, Berkshire Witness Service and Thames Valley Police. Build the foundations of your legal knowledge in the first and second years of study, with a programme determined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Council. You can also complement your legal study with modules from outside of law – for example, languages, politics, and business courses such as entrepreneurship. Focus on your interests and select from a wide range of modules in your final year. Popular options are "Company law", "Intellectual property", "Revenue law", "Family law" and "Criminology". Law benefits from close industry links. Our business partners include well-respected law firms, crown, county and military courts, as well as publishing houses and energy providers. We have a dedicated careers adviser and offer many career-orientated events. We host workshops on CV writing, placement applications and interview techniques; and commercial awareness workshops and business games together with some of our business partners. **Careers** We have excellent links with industry.

    Students are provided with opportunities to have a well rounded student experience and receive appropriate help, however, I've heard that the wait for counselling for example is quite long and not that useful after all.
