Law is a global profession. An understanding of more than one legal system, language and culture can open up a world of opportunity.
This four-year degree course is an expansion of our LLB Law, with an additional year abroad at one of our partner universities. Currently, we partner with institutions in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, Mexico and Colombia.* To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.
A broader cultural experience, living in another country and the ability to articulate the benefits of different legal systems will see you graduate with a valuable skill set, ideally tailored to the globalised workplace and sought after by leading employers.
You can apply to transfer to our Study Abroad degree from LLB Law at the end of your first year. Selection is on the basis of first-year results and language ability if you plan to study in a country where you will not be taught in English (various options to study in English are also available).
Second-year units provide the opportunity to deepen your legal knowledge and offer increased flexibility to focus on what legal themes interest you most. Typically, you will spend your third year abroad studying the law of the country you are visiting.
Your final year in Bristol may include further optional units to support your professional aspirations. Inspired by their year abroad, many students choose units suited to global law firms and international organisations, such as business and finance, environmental, human rights or technology law – subjects that may open doors to top-flight careers. Your final-year dissertation allows you to engage critically with your chosen topic.
*Our international partnerships are reviewed annually. Please check for the 2022/23 update before applying.
