Law is a global profession. An understanding of more than one legal system, language and culture can open up a world of opportunity.

On this four-year, joint honours course you will develop your language and cultural knowledge of France and the francophone world to degree level alongside core units in civil and common law, the world's most prominent legal systems. You will have the chance to spend your third year at a French-speaking partner university. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Centre for Study Abroad.

The course is structured to help you think, write, reason and argue like an international lawyer while gaining a rich understanding of French language, literature, history and culture. It will also help you develop key skills in research and analysis.

Our exciting range of optional units will allow you to specialise during your degree. Many law and language students choose options suited to global law firms and international businesses, such as human rights, environment or technology law - subjects that can open doors to top-flight careers across the world.

Optional units in your second and fourth year provide flexibility to focus on what interests you most about French-speaking countries, their cultures and impacts on the world. You will also further develop your linguistic skills.

Typically, you will spend your third year abroad studying units in French law taught in French.

Your final year at Bristol may include optional units that support your professional aspirations, while your final-year dissertation allows you to engage critically with your chosen topic. Our wide range of specialist units span banking and finance, international and commercial law, criminology, IT, environment, health and human rights law.

A broader cultural experience, advanced language skills and the ability to articulate both the distinctive and common features of different legal systems will see you graduate with a valuable skill set, ideally tailored to the globalised workplace.

In combination with Law, French is only available at post-A level (or equivalent).
