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).
