The law degrees at BU are focused on giving you the best possible preparation for a rewarding legal career. We have a long tradition of offering high-quality courses, with placements to give you experience in a professional setting and the choice to specialise in the area of law that most interests you.

Over the years, we’ve developed excellent links with a range of legal firms, from local organisations to national companies. You could find yourself on a placement with a company such as Sun, Steele Raymond, Law Debenture, Citizen’s Advice Bureau, Gardner Leader, CPS and Garside & Hoy Solicitors, among many others.

Accreditations to prepare you for your legal career

All of our law courses are qualifying law degrees (QLD), which means that you’ll graduate with more than just a degree – you’ll also have an accreditation from the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and Bar Standards Board (BSB). Where applicable, courses are also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT).

Build your experience with Moot Court trials

Complementing work placements, the Moot Court experience offered as part of your degree gives you the chance to take part in workshops and work with non-law students from across BU in show trials involving judges, juries, witnesses and legal counsels. You can see some show trials in action in our playlist:


Expand your horizons

“[My degree] has helped me develop so many skills; I’ve met so many people, networked… It’s really developed me as a person, I just think it’s great.”
