Law and Politics (Integrated) | Bachelor's degree | Law | On Campus | 3 years | Cardiff University | United Kingdom
Unquestionably the relationship between Law and Politics is an interdependent one.
Both subjects have a huge impact on all our lives regardless of age, ethnicity and social background. This program allows you to combine these fascinating topics within the interdisciplinary environment of the School of Law and Politics.
You will gain a comprehensive grounding in Law by studying the foundation modules (which constitute the academic stage of training that is currently necessary to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales) across the three years of your program. Alongside your Law modules you will study Politics modules that explore how parliaments and governments function and evaluate political ideas such as power, freedom, democracy, conflict, legitimacy and accountability.
Founded on world-class research and an international reputation for excellence, our degree programs are both challenging and inspirational.
We have excellent academic links with the National Assembly for Wales and long established relationships with national and international organisations such as the Westminster parliament, European Union and NATO giving you the opportunity to supplement your learning by engaging with political decision makers.
We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give you the opportunity to practise and extend your skills through a variety of pro bono schemes. Our students have helped overturn two convictions at the Court of Appeal through their work as part of the innocence project, reclaimed thousands of pounds for individuals and/or families who have paid private nursing home fees, provided legal support for rugby clubs and players and supported vulnerable adults who have been arrested.
You will have the opportunity to apply for a work placement which will be carried out in the third year of your degree. Should you wish to pursue a career in the legal sector, full-time, salaried placem
