Course Description

Our joint programmes allow you to study law alongside another academic discipline. Over four years of study you will take a range of courses from both the Law School and the School of Social and Politic Science.

The joint LLB in Law and Social Anthropology aims to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of the theory, concepts and rules of the law.

The programme will also enable you to study human conduct and thought, their variations, and the common humanity that underlies them.

What is social anthropology?

Social anthropology is the comparative study of human behaviour and ideas in their social contexts. Societies around the world vary enormously in their:

  • social
  • cultural
  • religious
  • political forms

Their individual members also display a corresponding diversity of ideas and behaviour.
