The lecturers are always supportive and the tutor system is very effective. We have been able to shape our degree in the way we want, learning the subjects that interest us. I would highly recommend the course and believe it has set me up very well for the future.

They include real-life scenarios and high-profile cases. We also get to practice our skills in the University's mock courtrooms.
