Student Opportunities


Our LLB programme is a three-year qualifying law degree. The core and optional units reflect the wide variety of approaches to legal research adopted by the scholars in the Law School - and include a final year Legal History unit, as well as the opportunity to pursue research with a historical perspective in the Final Year Research Project. In recent years, our final year undergraduates have pursued research in a variety of legal-historical areas including:

  • The law on witchcraft
  • Actions for breach of promise of marriage
  • Slavery and the law
  • Capital punishment
  • The law on suicide
  • The law on mental capacity and criminal responsibility
  • The law on care and confinement of those with reduced mental capacity
  • Law and protest
