Law Undergraduate Degrees

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Law is a fascinating, dynamic area of study. It is critical to all societies, to relationships between people, between organisations and between individuals and the state – as well as between states. Law is an important part of social and global ordering while being a potent weapon of both the powerful and the weak.

In an increasingly interconnected world, the idea of studying the laws of a single jurisdiction has become less tenable. Legal issues often transcend national borders and legal ideas have travelled far beyond their places of origin.

With decades of teaching the laws of the developing world to students, SOAS Law degrees continue to provide our students with an understanding of law and a set of employable skills reaching far beyond more traditional degrees.
