Trosolwg

Founded in 1901, the Aberystwyth Law School is the oldest Law School in Wales and has an excellent reputation for the quality of its teaching and the expertise of its staff. In choosing to study at the Aberystwyth Law School, you will discover a challenging and stimulating course. Our degree is recognised by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority, providing a direct route to the legal profession.

Our degrees are qualifying Law degrees for entry to the legal profession. They are four years in duration. Your third year will be spent abroad, either, studying at one or more universities, as an English assistant in a school, in employment, or a combination of these possibilities. As a French student you are not restricted to France, but have the opportunity of going to Belgium, Switzerland, North Africa, Canada or territories in the French Pacific: Within France there are special links with, amongst others, universities in Paris, Toulouse, Corsica, Besançon, Nantes, La Rochelle, Montpellier and Rennes.

If you wish to qualify as a solicitor you will be eligible to continue vocational training on the Legal Practice Course (LPC) upon graduation, or the Bar Vocational Course (BVC) if you wish to train as a barrister. Successful completion of particular modules will enable you to gain exemption from some professional examinations. 

Your learning is closely linked to the vigorous research activity carried out in the department, providing you with an outstanding, dynamic and up-to-date learning environment. You will benefit from a mature and well-stocked Law library, supplemented by generous electronic resources. 

The university has a proud tradition of research excellence, as demonstrated in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) assessment. It placed the university in the top 50 institutions for research power and intensity. It submitted 77% of eligible staff and 95% of the university's research was of an internationally recognised standard.

The School offers a programme of valuable social and professional opportunities, such as trips to law fairs and to the Inns of Court in London. The Mooting Society provides you with the opportunity to develop and test your key advocacy and litigation skills in a fun and competitive environment, by taking part in mock trials. Aberystwyth University regularly competes in national and international mooting competitions, and there is also a Welsh National Mooting Competition for students who wish to moot through the medium of Welsh. 

This BA enables you to study French as a Minor subject. Language skills are vital to the UK’s economic, political and strategic interests and languages graduates are in demand by employers. Whilst you will have acquired the same skills as other Arts graduates, you will have one major advantage compared to other students: you will have lived independently in at least one foreign country, and have learnt the important social skill of intercultural communication. Employers value the independence, the social confidence and the high level of linguistic skill acquired.

Cyflogadwyedd

Your BA in Law with French opens up a range of exciting opportunities for employment and further training. You will be a strong candidate for training to become a barrister or a solicitor. In addition, recent statistics from HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) show that law graduates succeed in the areas of criminology, financial management, business, human resources, international relations, journalism and education. Throughout your training you will develop a wealth of core legal skills and other skills that can be easily transferred into almost any graduate or professional employment situation.

Modern linguists are statistically amongst the most employable graduates. Graduates from the Department of European Languages have found employment in the public and private sectors. They have gone on to become teachers, translators, administrators, managers, army officers, journalists and lawyers. Many students also choose to do postgraduate work in a range of different fields, e.g in translating and interpreting. Our degrees also take our students across the world.

Transferable Skills
Studying for a BA in Law with French will equip you with a range of transferable skills which are highly valued by employers. These include:
• the ability to express ideas and communicate information in a clear and structured manner, in both written and oral form
• effective problem-solving and creative thinking skills
• the ability to work independently
• time-management and organisational skills, including the ability to meet deadlines
• self-motivation and self-reliance
• the ability to gather, assimilate and interpret a wealth of legal information quickly and accurately
• confidence in selecting and deploying the most appropriate of a range of legal methodologies
• writing for and speaking to a range of audiences
• evaluating and organising information
• team-working, with the ability to discuss concepts in groups, accommodating different ideas and reaching agreement
• research skills
In addition to these skills, you will benefit from the prestige of holding a BA in Law from a traditional university. Law is rightly perceived as an academically demanding subject, and this puts you at an advantage over your competitors in any employment context.

Year in Employment scheme (YES)
The University operates a Year in Employment Scheme (YES), which offers you a fantastic opportunity to take a year out between your second and third year to work in an organisation in the UK or overseas. YES provides a very rewarding and worthwhile experience, both personally and professionally, and can help you to stand out from the crowd in a very competitive job market. The University’s Career Service will help you to explore your options and secure a suitable work placement.

GO Wales
GO Wales is administered by the University’s Career Service, working with local businesses to create paid work placements of a few weeks’ duration for students. It gives you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience which will enhance your CV and make you more attractive to potential employers

Addysg a Dysgu

This BA programme is designed to help you fine-tune your cognitive abilities and give you the formal knowledge required for a successful law career in the twenty-first century, but with the flexibility to combine your study of the law with another discipline. In addition to a rigorous core of modules which will provide you with fundamental training in the Law, and in addition to the core French language module you will be able to choose one 10-credit optional module from the European Languages Department each year. As long as you pass the core Law modules, this BA Law degree is a qualifying Law degree for the purposes of the professional legal bodies in the United Kingdom.


In the first year you will receive core training in a number of foundation subjects which must be studied and passed for the purpose of obtaining exemption from the first stage of professional law examinations: these include Contract law and Criminal law. You will also explore the structure and development of the English, Welsh and international legal systems, learn about the significance of judicial precedent and its relationship with the court system, and analyse the processes of creating legislation and how it is interpreted by judges. As well as this you will be studying the French language and one elective module in French.
In the second and third years you will be introduced to the Law of Torts, Public Law, European Law, and Equity and the Law of Trusts, which you need to study in order to gain exemption from the Law Society and Bar Part I examinations. You will also be able to tailor your study through careful selection from a range of elective modules, both in Law and from the European Languages Department.


In French language classes you will consolidate your knowledge of French grammar and will also practise putting that grammar to use in a range of oral and written styles. Our excellent laboratory facilities offer access to live French television programmes as well as a wealth of computer-assisted language-learning exercises, most of which you can access at any time of day for self-study to support your classroom–based learning. Translation is another important skill you will practise regularly, as well as essay- and report-writing.

As a student of Law with Minor French at Aberystwyth you will have a slightly smaller range of elective modules to choose from than students taking French as Joint Honour or as a Major subject. Modules in Current Affairs and Business French are available as well as French literature.
