Studying with us during coronavirus in 2021

Studying Law

What to look forward to

Throughout your learning, you’ll benefit from our outstanding academic reputation which puts you at the heart of legal research and innovation and even get the chance to test your skills in the Legal Advice Centre.

Get hands-on experience to prepare you for graduation

Whether you’re studying our general LLB or BA pathway or our specialist routes, you’ll learn through a mixture of both theory-based modules and hands-on workshops.

You’ll get to apply theory by analysing cases and building out proposals, both on your own and with your classmates. At times, you’ll even get to attend moot courts (re-enactments of real court cases) where you can watch the case come to life in our large lecture halls or even in our specialist chambers inside Hendon Town Hall.

You’ll also be encouraged to participate in our Legal Advice Centre (LAC), where you’ll get to support our legal staff in managing real clients.

  • We're back on campus for teaching

    Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.

    We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you. We'll deliver online and campus teaching that will involve a mix of online teaching for very large lectures and workshops with seminars and smaller group teaching on campus.

  • Innovative teaching that's enhanced by technology

    Our teaching and learning approach is evidence-based and designed using feedback from students and staff during the pandemic and in previous years.

    For example, our students particularly liked watching our bite-sized “concept videos” to refresh their knowledge before a lecture so we’re continuing to include these in course materials.

    We also use technology to enhance your learning and put you in control, like polls, virtual whiteboards, and quizzes during lectures so you can interact live.

    Tech also allows us to add innovative new ways of teaching into the mix like when we took students last year on a virtual tour of the Council of Europe in Strasburg, including a live Q&A with the judge.

  • Personalised support to launch your career

    Our students generally pursue a wide range of careers, whether that’s following the path of becoming a solicitor or barrister or pursuing work in business, government, or non-profit.

    To support you, our Law School has established a robust and personalised approach to employability service. We’ll help you curate your CV, build your cover letters, and even prepare you for your interviews.

    We’ll also help you to connect with our network to secure placement opportunities, part-time work, or volunteer experience to boost your resume.

    Our Graduate Academic Assistants and Employability Officer are all here to help you through each step of your journey, no matter what your career ambitions may be.

  • Bringing our research expertise into the classroom

    You’ll be joining one of the most innovative and forward-thinking law schools in the country when you join us at Middlesex. Our academic staff continue to lead in their research fields from international policy and human rights to immigration and Brexit law.

    This research comes to life in our variety of specialist routes and optional modules. You can choose to specialise in areas like commercial law, European law, or criminal law or simply tailor your degree through optional modules like Employment Law or Medical Law.

    You’ll also be taught by some of the most respected academic researchers in the country, like Dr Joelle Grogan who recently spoke in front of the House of Lords regarding COVID-19 or our Head of Department, Laurent Pech, who continues to advocate for human rights policies across Europe.

    From our practical teaching methods and personalised career support to our incredible research staff, we know that studying law at Middlesex University will set you up for a successful career.

    No matter your area of interest or career goals, we are here to help you along your journey and ensure you are equipped to practice in an ever-changing world.
