What is this Law with Italian degree about?...

Law affects all of our lives and the knowledge of law increases our understanding of the society and the world in which we live. This Law with Italian degree programme provides a liberal education in Law, or in Law combined with another discipline, to promote such an awareness and to allow those who so wish to progress to careers in the legal professions. 

You can combine the study of Law with a range of subjects. Approximately two-thirds of the curriculum will focus on Law and one-third on the other subject. All are LLB degrees and all have been accredited by the Law Society and the Bar Council as Qualifying Law Degrees (QLD). This status denotes that Bangor LLB graduates have completed the academic stage of training for the legal professions in England and Wales, and may enter directly onto Legal Practice Courses (LPC) to become solicitors or the Bar Practice Training Course (BPTC) to become barristers.

In the Law with French/German/Italian or Spanish degree, the European language may be studied from beginner and intermediate level when combined with Law.

Lawyers with additional linguistic skills are in high demand. Recognising this, we have developed a suite of programmes in Law with a European Language enabling you to undertake a 4-year programme combining the study of a European Language with a Qualifying Law Degree. The language may be studied from beginners and intermediate level when combined with Law.

Law with a European Language enables you to develop linguistic skills and knowledge of continental legal systems to meet the needs of legal practice within the European Union. These schemes last for four years, including a whole year abroad in the third year studying law and developing language proficiency at a leading university in Europe.

These partner university placements are operated through the European Commission Erasmus exchange programme. An Erasmus study grant is available to participating students for the duration of the placement. Details can be found at: www.bangor.ac.uk/international/erasmus/index

During the third year abroad, you study Law at the partner universities and learn the fundamentals of law, basic legal skills and develop proficiency in the European language. This involves gaining inside knowledge of the legal system, learning to deal with legal issues, interpreting legal rules and employing techniques of legal reasoning - and all done competently in the chosen language. This set of knowledge and skills substantially increases your future work prospects.

A range of modules in the chosen language is undertaken in conjunction with the compulsory modules in Law.

This degree is accredited by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
