The Law School is one of nine academic schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
For example in the LLB, at Stage 3, you may take an option in Medicine and the Law in which you will gain medical knowledge to help understand medical law issues. Alternatively, you might study Criminology and Criminal Justice or Family Law: in both of these option you will learn of the socio-legal approach studying law in its social context and drawing on sociological legal empirical and psychological perspectives. Again, Legal Theory involves the application of philosophy as well as literary context of law. These are just some examples of our interdisciplinary approaches in the LLB degree.
At postgraduate level, on taught Masters programmes and in research degrees (principally the PhD programme) we offer interdisciplinary perspectives, for example in international commercial law and in environmental law, an area in which environmental science gives an important perspective.
