Y Gyfraith gyda’r Gymraeg (Law with Welsh) LLB (Hons)
Mae’r gyfraith yn effeithio ar ein bywydau ni gyd, ac mae gwybodaeth i’r gyfraith yn gwella ein dealltwriaeth o’r gymdeithas a’r byd o’n cwmpas. Mae’r cwrs yn cynnig addysg eang yn y gyfraith, yn datblygu dealltwriaeth ac yn gallugoi graddedidgion i ddilyn gyrfaeodd yn y maes cyfreithiol.
Mae’r Gyfraith gyda’r Gymraeg yn radd gymwysedig yn y gyfraith i fyfyrwyr sy’n bwriadu dilyn gyrfa yng Nghymru ac sy’n dymuno sicrhau y byddant yn gallu defnyddio’u sgiliau cyfreithiol ar ôl graddio gyda’r un gallu a’r hyder yn y Gymraeg a’r Saesneg, er mwyn cyflawni anghenion cymdeithas ddwyieithog y Gymru fodern.
Gyda dyfodiad Deddfau Llywodraeth Cymru 1998 a 2006, sefydlwyd Cynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru fel corff deddfwriaethol yng Nghaerdydd. Yn unol â’r Deddfau, mae’n rhaid i bob darn o ddeddfwriaeth a gynhyrchir gan y Cynulliad gael ei gyhoeddi’n ddwyieithog. Felly mae galw mawr yng Nghymru, nid yn unig am gyfreithwyr sy’n gallu darllen a deall dwy fersiwn y testun, ond sydd hefyd yn gallu cyfrannu at ddrafftio’r papurau’n ddwyieithog. Bydd y galw yma’n sicr o gynyddu wrth i broses ddeddfwriaethol y Cynulliad ddatblygu gydag amser.

Employability and the School of Law
Studying at Bangor Law School is about so much more than learning: it is also about preparing for employment. We are focussed on helping students to improve their career prospects by developing the skills that are in demand by employers and facilitating opportunities to gain crucial work experience.
Through our continuous work in developing contacts with legal practitioners across the UK, we have developed a programme of work placements with a number of law firms and corporations. Our contacts in the legal sector have also been instrumental in developing the annual Law Fair, during which students are able to network with a range of local employers. These activities are complemented by regular careers talks from guest speakers.
Through the support of legal practitioners in the local area we have also been able to conduct specialist module workshops recently, which allow students to discuss and debate issues they have encountered in class with experienced professionals.
Bangor Students' Law Society
The award-winning Bangor Students' Law Society organises a calendar of events intended to complement what is learnt in lectures and to expand students' career prospects. These include the annual Moot Court competitions (in which teams of students take part in simulated court proceedings) and the opportunity to obtain the BPP Certificate in Commercial Awareness.
Together, the Law School and the Society provide a dynamic learning environment that accelerates students' development and prepares them for life after graduation, be it in the legal profession, further study or another industry altogether.
Innocence Project and Street Law
The Innocence Project and Street Law see students applying their legal education to real-life situations and to make a difference, whether that may be through overturning a wrongful conviction or distributing legal knowledge amongst local communities and schools. These activities are an impressive addition to any CV and help to nurture all-important analytical, communication, presentation and teamwork skills.
Both School and Society work continuously to develop links with the legal industry to ensure that all available opportunities are to the utmost benefit of Bangor University Law School's students and graduates.
Employability and the School of Welsh and Celtic Studies
It's a very exciting time for graduates leaving University with a qualification in Welsh. With the statutory demand for pupils to study Welsh at school until the age of 16, there is a growing demand for teachers, both primary and secondary, with good qualifications in the subject. Traditionally many of our students, who go on to do research for a postgraduate course, often end up lecturing at colleges and Universities.
Opportunities in Media
There are now many more choices for our graduates than ever before. Since S4C was founded in the early 80s, a number of our students went on to work in the media industry as researchers, producers and TV and Radio presenters, and script writers for popular programmes such as Pobl y Cwm and journalists with BBC and ITV. Others were successful in getting jobs with magazines like Golwg and Barn; while others went on to work as translators with big companies like Y Lolfa, Gwasg Gomer and the Welsh Books Council.
One of the implications of setting up the Welsh Language Board was that all public services and local authorities were legally obliged to produce a Welsh Language Scheme. Many of our graduates were employed to produce theses new language schemes.
As a result of the National Assembly for Wales opening in Cardiff, there was a growing demand for translators, editors and proof readers with a high standard of Welsh.
A number of our graduates have also made their mark as successful actors on stage and TV. Others have gone on to join the police, public services and even priesthood.
In summary, a degree in Welsh gives you a sought after qualification and a number of career paths to choose from.
Opportunities at Bangor
The University’s Skills and Employability Service provides a wide range of resources to help you achieve your graduate ambitions. Developing your personal skills and enhancing your employability while at university is becoming increasingly important in today’s job market.
The Bangor Employability Award (BEA) and Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)
The Bangor Employability Award enables students to build on their transferable skills through the recognition of activities they become involved in during their university life. Students can gain points towards the award through extra-curricular activities such as volunteering, attending workshops or actively participating in the Students’ Union’s clubs and societies.
The HEAR is a final graduation report that all undergraduates receive. The report itemises all academic achievements and additional extra and co-curricular achievements. Academic achievements appear on the report automatically and students are able to note their eligible activities by using the online platform ‘My Employability Hub’. This ensures that future employers are made aware of the additional skills the student has gained outside of the curriculum.
The Award is open to everyone and taking part in the scheme can make a major difference to your performance in the graduate job market.
Bangor University runs undergraduate and postgraduate internship schemes twice a year, which allow students to work in a professional environment while learning relevant skills and earning money.
Internships offer valuable experience in a professional workplace and there are a range of internships you can get involved in.
Not only is volunteering worthwhile – it also improves your employability and widens your experience.
The Students’ Union has a dedicated Student Volunteering Office (SVB) which currently contributes a total of 600 hours each week, promoting a close relationship between the university and the local community. Find out more on the Student Volunteering pages of the Bangor Student’s Union website.
