Helen Connies-Laing, The University of Law

Develop the skills you need to prepare for studying law at university

This three-week foundation law course will provide you with a taster of the legal concepts, academic English and research project modules found on the International Foundation Programme in law. Ultimately it will prepare you with the skills you need to begin a degree in the field of law.

You’ll learn how to read critically, make notes and develop an academic argument based on a contemporary current affairs issue. You’ll also explore how the law impacts on your everyday life and consider the difference between legal, moral and social duties.
