Many LLB graduates pursue a career as a solicitor or a barrister, but these professions are not the only option. The analytical and problem-solving skills developed in a law degree are valuable in a range of businesses. Law graduates also find employment in the civil and public service, as well as the NGO sector, where their legal knowledge and critical thinking skills are particularly useful.

Certain subjects are considered essential to the study of law, such as Contract Law, Property Law, Criminal Law and European Union law. You’ll build up a base of knowledge in these core areas as well as following your own interests through specialised topics.

TU Dublin puts a strong emphasis on areas of law that have recently changed. We offer optional modules such as Criminology, Intellectual Property and Media Law, Prison Law and the Law and Society Research Clinic, where students engage in research for the benefit of an NGO.

In this course, you’ll develop skills of analysis, research and communication, a well-honed capacity for problem-solving, an appreciation of the complex relationship between law and society, and how law can both help and hinder the resolution of social problems. You can examine the operation of the criminal justice system, consider how the law should respond to new technologies or carry out research for an NGO on real-world problems. You’ll be able to make and evaluate arguments and take a logical and practical approach to solve complex problems.

Contact hours: 12 hours of face-to-face teaching and two hours of tutorials, weekly.

This course is recognised by King's Inns as a qualifying law degree for the purposes of admission to the Barrister at Law degree
