What skills will I learn on a Law course?

You will learn transferable skills for the Law sector specifically, which can also be utilised across a wide range of industries. This will be underpinned by your theoretical knowledge from taught and independent study, as well as the volunteering experience from your work placement and mentors.

You will be in a position to learn a number of critical skills that will prepare you for employment in whichever field you choose to work in. These skills will not only focus on communication, problem-solving, time management, critical analysis, but also those based upon or Graduate Attributes Matrix for Employability. These key employability skills are embedded within your individual modules, and include resilience, problem-solving, effective communication, global, enterprising, adaptability, confidence, lifelong learning, and self-awareness.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Law Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Law subject area.


You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.
