A law degree opens the door to a broad range of career paths. Law students are among the most employable and adaptable graduates in the world of work. At Suffolk, we combine the finest traditions of legal education with recent innovations and current theory, drawing on a range of perspectives in our teaching, spanning related disciplines within the broader humanities and the social sciences.
Law is constantly evolving and cannot be studied in a vacuum, so studying law at Suffolk extends well beyond the usual focus on basic legal rules and legal institutions. We emphasise the practical application of law to solve problems, and our approach will help you to develop a firm grounding in the contexts in which law and legal institutions function, as well as gaining expertise in the subject of law itself.
Our Legal Advice Centre is a beacon for providing those most in need of legal advice. Student volunteers work alongside our experienced supervising solicitors providing the local community with free legal advice in areas of law where access to advice is limited, predominantly where legal aid is difficult to secure.
