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. Core modules on the Law course include Constitutional Law and Human Rights, and Inquiry and Research Skills.

Students will then choose two elective modules, one from Tort and Contract Law or Criminal Law, and the other from either History or Politics.

English language tuition will be tailored according to your needs and will include aspects such as IELTS preparation and English for Academic Purposes.

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 lectures 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.
