Law shapes our society and influences every aspect of our lives. It defines our obligations and legal requirements, serves to regulate and define relationships and provides a means of redress when problems arise. To study Law is not only to study a challenging subject, but also to study the rules, principles and policies that underpin society. This degree gives you a theoretical and philosophical grounding in Law, as well as the ability to engage in its practical study and application.
Study Law with us and you will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles, theories and key ideas that underpin the law in England and Wales. You also learn about the way Public Law provides the legal framework within which government and administration functions, the structure of Law and Government under which we live, and the values of democracy, rule of law and constitutionalism that underpin that structure.
We aim to produce graduates who do not merely know or know how to, but understand why things are as they are and how they could be different. It is about gaining a deep approach to the subject, in which you try to relate ideas in one subject to those in others, to understand what you read, questioning material, making links and pursuing lines of inquiry out of interest.

Whether at a local, regional or national level, politics and political decisions affect all citizens and are instrumental in shaping the future of the nation. At Liverpool Hope, we address topics that allow us to explore the theory and practical application of politics. We look at local issues in Liverpool, the politics of the UK and the EU and consider broader theoretical concepts such as the historical evolution of democracy and how it is practised in the world today.
Politics is a very dynamic and ever-changing subject. We try to engage with politics and political issues as they evolve and change over time, and we actively encourage debate and discussion amongst our students, encouraging a stronger awareness and appreciation of different points of view. The study of politics at Liverpool Hope does not just take place in the classroom and the library. You will be taught by staff who are experts in their field, and will help you to develop the skills you need to engage critically and knowledgeably with the world and equip you with transferable skills to take into the world of work.
The study of politics at Liverpool Hope does not just take place in the classroom and the library. We also organise fieldtrips to relevant local, regional and national institutions, as well as bring in guest speakers and practitioners from outside. Recent visits have included a trip to the UK Parliament, Brussels and Berlin, and visits from local politicians and other figures.For more details and information about this course visit:
