Course Description

About This Course

Join a top Law School that offers an intimate and engaging, student-focused law degree experience. Gain the skills and confidence you need to excel within or beyond the legal profession through a law degree with a year abroad in America.

UEA Law School is housed in historic Earlham Hall. You will join a welcoming and collegiate community of legal scholars and students. You will be taught by dedicated lecturers with expertise in a range of legal fields and will be part of a vibrant student body with an active law society.


The LLB (Hons) in Law with American Law offers an exciting opportunity to combine a qualifying law degree with a broader educational and cultural experience.

The study of American law will provide a comparative element to your legal education. As well as taking two American Law modules at UEA, you will spend your third year at one of our partner law schools in the US. At the end of this four-year course, you will obtain an English qualifying law degree and have a good understanding of the US legal system.

You will start your degree by establishing the building blocks of legal knowledge. At the same time, you will begin cultivating important skills, such as research, writing and constructing a legal argument.

The point of legal study is not simply to memorise the law, but to be able to engage with it skillfully. As such, many of the skills you will develop are transferrable and will be valuable to you within or beyond a career in law.

In your second year, alongside your English law modules, you will study Introduction to American Law and US Constitutional Method in preparation for the year abroad. You will spend your third year at one of our partner US law schools. Currently, students attend either Cumberland Law School at Samford University (Birmingham, Alabama) or South Texas College of Law (Houston, Texas).

You will be free to choose one optional module at UEA in your second year and five in your fourth year, allowing you to tailor your degree to suit your interests. Our semesterised system means that core modules are a semester long, not a year long, allowing you to study more broadly. You will also have many opportunities to build your skills, confidence and professional CV through extra-curricular activities and the Law School’s unique employability programme. You could, for example, complete an internship at a law firm, or you could ‘marshal’, spending a day on the bench with a judge during a trial. You could benefit from the alumni-mentoring scheme, where Law School graduates offer career mentoring to individual students. Our many events with law firms, barrister chambers and alumni create great opportunities for finding out about the options for when you graduate. You could make a difference in the local community, working for the public good (pro bono). In less than five years, our students have recovered no less than £7 million for welfare benefits claimants wrongly denied payments. We have won the national LawWorks Best Partnership in Pro Bono award no fewer than four times.

You can also have fun, build your profile and hone valuable skills by joining in Law Society activities. As well as social events, these include beginner and advanced mooting contests where a point of law is debated in a simulated court hearing. Finals are judged by actual judges or barristers. The Law Society also holds negotiation, client interviewing, mediation and legal triathlon competitions, the finals of which are hosted by law firms. In 2016 the UEA Law Society won LawCareers.Net award for ‘Best Pro Bono’ activities and in 2019 the award as the best law society for Commercial Awareness.
