Law

You’re not afraid to stand up for what’s right. You use logic and reason to solve problems. And you want to use these skills to have a positive impact on society, by working as a solicitor or barrister, or applying your legal knowledge in other industries. At ARU, you'll have the chance to join our mentoring scheme, and to gain hands-on work experience.

Here in the School of Economics, Finance and Law, we're looking forward to teaching you the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful legal professional.

Whether you want to be a solicitor, barrister or paralegal, or put your legal skills to use in industry, you'll learn from highly experienced lecturers and tutors and have a wealth of opportunities to practice your new skills.

Dispense legal advice under the supervision of qualified solicitors at our Law Clinic, enter national competitions with our Law Society, take advantage of our mentoring and work experience opportunities, and much more as you prepare for a rewarding career making a real difference to people's lives.
