Enhancing your employability
The Law Clinic
Our law clinic gives students an opportunity to put theory into practice. As part of their degree, students work in our law clinic advising members of the public in conjunction with the Citizens Advice Bureau and CHAS@StVincent's.
Students are trained to interview and advise members of the public on any aspect of law. Working as part of a team, students discuss the case and decide whether the client is in need of legal advice. Under the guidance of the Clinic Director, students then prepare advice for their client.
Students also have the opportunity to receive formal training on immigration law, leading to the award of OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner) Level 1 and 2 qualifications through collaboration with CHAS@StVincent's. This gives students the opportunity to be involved in giving immigration advice whilst earning recognised qualifications.
Our students have the opportunity to get involved in a range of internal and external mooting competitions.
Mooting complements students' legal education and is a great way to learn how to use the law to create persuasive legal arguments. Students have to analyse problems, research the law, prepare written submissions and present their arguments to a trained lawyer or judge.
The competition imitates the procedures followed in appeal courts, and is a great chance for students to put their skills and knowledge into practice.
You'll be allocated a Personal Academic Tutor, who will provide you with personal guidance and support.
Module leaders and tutors are accessible, providing office hours and appointments in order to support your learning beyond class contact.
The use of a virtual learning environment as part of the programme further enhances the accessibility of your teaching team, enabling you to interact when you are off-campus.
The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (e.g assignments and examinations) as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.
The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.
These are in addition to the wide range of students support that are offered by the University of Bradford at the City Campus.
Many of your teaching staff are research active.
You will benefit from research informed teaching, and have the opportunity to develop and use practical research skills and gain understanding of research methodologies.
