School of Law

Overview

Our aim within the Law School at Liverpool Hope is to develop students' capacity in: intellectual integrity and curiousity, core and contextual knowledge, alongside legal values and professional skills.

The University has responded to the appeal from the Law Society for there to be a greater focus on ethics in the academic stage of legal education. Accordingly, the Law Schools' teaching and learning content and ethos is governed by a concentration on the moral component of the traditional knowledge, technical expertise and skill elements of legal education (“thinking like a lawyer”).

Studying the Law Major, our basic teaching framework encompasses the following core subjects – Public Law (Constitutional and Administrative Law and English Legal System), Legal Method (Research and Theory), European Law, Criminal Law and the Law of Obligations (Contract, Remedies and Tort). In addition to a depth of learning in areas of basic legal knowledge and generic skills, we provide the equipment for sound judgement, wider civic and common professional virtues, the development of plural and democratic values and the promotion of civic justice and fairness.

On the LLB programme, we cover the major subject areas that will equip you for your onward progress into the Vocational Study phase and professional practice. You will examine rules in their social and civic context and critically analyse their meaning and purpose. You will develop a deep understanding of the theoretical basis of the law and how it relates to concepts of justice, ethics and individuality. Our aim is to encourage students to develop into reflective, ethical professionals of the future.
