Course Overview

Law plays a fundamental part in our everyday lives. Have you ever considered, for example, how many contracts you form each year, or even each week?

During our Law course you will be introduced to the English legal system and the European Convention on Human Rights, exploring how the legal system intersects with politics at a national and an international level.

Throughout the course you will also gain an insight into the decision-making options facing lawyers, as you learn to construct and present arguments through effective legal reasoning.

The Warwick IFP in Law is a great way to prepare for a Law degree, with previous students progressing to courses such as LLB Law and BA Law and Business Studies.


On all courses there are a range of core and elective module choices, with students studying four modules in total. Typical module choices on the Law course include Constitutional Law and Human Rights, Tort and Contract Law, Criminal Law, History, and Politics.

All students also study a core Inquiry and Research Skills module, as well as the English Language Certificate, which will be tailored according to your needs.

Modules are reviewed on a regular basis and therefore may be subject to change; our website will update to reflect any changes.

Teaching and Assessment

Students on the Warwick IFP will usually have approximately 18 hours of contact time across their academic modules, made up of a combination of lecutres and seminars. There will also be up to 5 hours of English Language teaching, dependent upon a student's individual needs.

Assessments on this course include formats such as essays, presentations and end of year examinations.
