Law is a global profession. An understanding of more than one legal system, language and culture can open up a world of opportunity.

On this four-year, joint honours course you will develop your language and cultural knowledge of German to degree level alongside core units in civil and common law – the world’s most prominent legal systems. You will have the chance to spend your third year at a German-speaking university. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.

The course is structured to help you think, write, reason and argue like an international lawyer while gaining a rich understanding of German language, linguistics, literature, history and culture. It will also help you develop key skills in research and analysis.

Our exciting range of optional units will help specialise your degree. Many law and language students choose options suited to global law firms and international businesses, such as human rights, environment or technology law – subjects that may open doors to top-flight careers the world over.

As you progress, second and fourth-year optional units provide the flexibility to focus on what interests you most about German-speaking communities, their culture and impact on the wider world. You will also have opportunities to develop your linguistic skills.

Typically, you will spend your third year abroad studying units in German law.

The final year of your Bristol degree includes further optional units to support your professional aspirations, and your final-year dissertation allows you to critically engage with your chosen topic. Our wide range of specialist units span banking and finance, international and commercial law, criminology, IT, environmental, health and human rights law

A broader cultural experience, advanced language skills and the ability to articulate both the distinctive and common features of different legal systems will see you graduate with a valuable skill set, ideally tailored to the globalised workplace.
