In years one and two, students will study the core legal subjects common to all undergraduate law degrees, including Employability, an elective unique to The City Law School, focusing on CV preparation, interview skills and understanding the job market. In your final year, students can choose from a wide range of elective subjects that allow you to study in a specialised field and gain important professional skills for your future career.

After the course
Students often progress their legal studies on to the professional stage, either studying the Bar Professional Training Course, (BPTC) for those who intend to become a barrister, or the Legal Practice Course (LPC), for students who want to pursue a career as a solicitor. Some students also opt to continue their studies with a Master of Laws (LLM) to further enhance their knowledge of a particular area of law. Students pursuing a career path outside of law develop a wide range of transferable skills enabling them to pursue careers in a variety of sectors such as banking and finance, and are fully equipped with the skills demanded by today's employers.
