What Will You Learn?

UK Law is a fascinating blend of history and tradition interwoven with the constantly evolving backdrop of the modern world. Whether you are curious about the law in the UK or considering a legal career, the Introduction to UK Law Course offers the perfect foundation for both pure interest and serious ambition.

Accessible information laid out in clear, easy-to-read language provides an introductory level of knowledge of common areas of English Law but with enough detail to introduce key concepts, principles and theories. The course covers contracts, civil wrongdoing (tort), crime, probate & inheritance, property, and human rights. You’ll also learn about the formation and composition of the English Legal System, the formation of the European Union and the impact of Brexit, and the science of criminal behaviour, criminology.

Beginning with a brief introduction to English Law, you’ll learn about the nature of law, the role it plays in society, and the differences between law and morality. From there, we’ll examine several areas of law.

We’ll explore the principles of contract law and how contracts are formed and disputed. We’ll look at civil law (also called tort law) and how this can create a duty of care between different parties, along with remedies and defences for breaches of tort. The course’s study of criminal law explains the necessary elements for criminal activity and behaviour, the sources of criminal law and the criminal justice system. We’ll explore Probate and the Law of Inheritance, covering the differences between dying with, and without, a will in place, along with who inherits – the Law of Succession – and inheritance tax. The course also covers the ownership and transfer of land, rights over land, the role of the Land Registry and the concept of tenancies.

The Introduction to UK Law Diploma Course examines the science of criminal behaviour (criminology), which looks at the psychology of crime and why crimes occur. You’ll be provided with an overview of the English Legal System, its foundations and how it has developed using statute and common law. We’ll examine human rights in our society, and within the broader picture of international law, and take a look at European Law, including the foundation of the European Union and the impact of Brexit.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Become familiar with the formation and composition of the English Legal System
  • Learn about the law in relation to contracts, civil wrongdoing (tort), crime, probate & inheritance, property, and human rights
  • Become familiar with the formation of the European Union and the impact of Brexit
  • Gain an understanding of criminology
