Law at Canterbury Christ Church University is original and innovative because it not only combines the normal essential teaching you need for a Qualifying Law Degree, but also has a Dispute Resolution pathway built into the LLB alongside the ability to study subjects of an ‘international’ nature in your final year. Each year, you will have the opportunity to take modules that give you both theoretical and practical experience in law.
In Year 1, for example, the basics of Criminal Law, the English Legal System, Contract Law and Critical Approaches to Law are taught alongside a module called an Introduction to Alternative Dispute Resolution.
In Year 2, Property Law, Torts and Administrative Law are core modules as well as the Theory of Dispute Resolution. In addition, you will have the option to choose 2 elective modules from Corporate Law, Race and the Law, Law and Religion, and Internet and the Law, for example.
In Year 3, the normal teaching includes European Law, Equity and Trusts and International Law. Electives typically range from Employment Law, International Human Rights, Civil and Commercial Mediation to Family Law and Intellectual Property Law.
