The media industry is constantly evolving and changing, which means that the laws that govern it are too. Intellectual property law and media regulation have become crucially important in the digital age, and this degree, accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board, gives you the academic knowledge as well as the analytical and business skills needed to tackle the ever-growing volume of cases.
We know it’s difficult to decide which area of law you’d like to focus on when you’re just setting out on your training, which is why all of our law pathways share a common first year. This means you can branch out into a specialised area of law when you have a better grasp of what each field entails. As well as Entertainment Law, we offer one degree providing a general legal education (Law), as well as Business Law, Law with Economics, Law & Taxation and Law with Politics.
You’ll be encouraged to gain as much experience as possible by attending court and undertaking work placements. A 30-week work placement in year three, completed anywhere in the world, will give you the opportunity to experience legal practice in the real world, make professional contacts, and enhance your employability. What’s more, if your placement meets the necessary criteria, it can count towards 20 weeks of your training contract after graduation. The placement is optional for our International students (non EU/UK), so there’s scope for all our students to take advantage of this excellent career enhancing experience.
