About this course

This is one of just a handful of programmes in the UK to combine a qualifying law degree with the study of psychology. You'll gain a comprehensive legal education while deepening your understanding of the human mind. The skills and knowledge that you develop will be invaluable for a career in the legal profession and in a wide range of other career paths.

You'll study a broad base of core and optional modules, designed to help you achieve a qualifying law degree, and deepen your own specialist knowledge across law (your major subject) and psychology (your minor subject). 

Our challenging and inspiring law and psychology degree will give you in-depth legal knowledge together with strong critical thinking and communication skills. Our unique employability skills programme will ensure you consolidate what you learn through exceptional work experience and networking opportunities. 

Your psychology modules will teach you the fundamental concepts in psychology, and give you an overview of current issues in clinical psychology. These include:

  • behavioural neuroscience
  • personality and intelligence
  • making sense of ambiguous scenes
  • educational and developmental psychology
  • self-conscious emotions

As part of your degree you can:

You can take part in a range of competitions to enhance your skills, including the Clyde & Co Team Building Challenge and regional, national and international mooting and negotiation competitions.

You can forge even stronger links within our friendly community by joining a student-run society. These include our Law Society, Inns of Court Society, Mooting Society, Lawyers without Borders and the Canadian Law Society.
