The media industry is constantly evolving and changing, impacted heavily by new and emerging technologies, which means so too are the laws that govern it. Intellectual property as well as Media and Entertainment Law have become particularly important in this field and this pathway will equip you with the relevant knowledge you need to get ahead in the areas of intellectual property and media regulation. Approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board, this course gives you the academic knowledge as well as the analytical and business skills needed to tackle the ever-growing volume of cases.
We know it’s difficult to decide which area of law you’d like to focus on when you’re just setting out on your training, which is why all of our law pathways share a common first semester. This means that you don’t need to make any major decisions about which branch of law you’d like to specialise in until you’ve spent a term studying the subject area and have a better grasp of what each field entails. As well as LLB (Hons) Law, Media & Creative Industries, we offer LLB (Hons) Law and LLB (Hons) Law with Politics.
You’ll be encouraged to gain as much experience as possible throughout your degree, as well as what you’ll learn in your lectures and seminars, there are lots of practical experiences including attending court, taking part in Moot Courts and Moot Show Trials and attending guest lectures. You’ll also have the opportunity to put knowledge into practice during a 30-week work placement, taken between your second and final year. Over the years, we've developed excellent links with a range of legal firms, from local organisations to national companies. What’s more, if your placement meets the necessary criteria, it can count towards a portion of your training contract or qualifying work experience after graduation.
There will be opportunities for you to join the BU Law Society and to contribute to the BU Law Review, an academic publication designed to encourage you to further your interests relating to the law and to publish your excellent research in the area.
