The BA in Law with Law Studies in Europe (technically 'Bachelor of Arts in the Final Honour School of Jurisprudence: English Law with Law Studies in Europe') is an extended version of our BA Law programme including an extra year spent at one of our partner universities in continental Europe.
Please begin by reading about our regular three-year BA in Jurisprudence.
During the first two years, students on the Law with Law Studies in Europe programme follow the same courses as those on the regular BA Law programme, with the addition of some classes preparing them for the year abroad. The year abroad is the third year. Students then return to Oxford to rejoin the final year of the regular BA Law programme. To be awarded the Law with Law Studies in Europe degree students have to pass their year abroad (assessed locally). However the degree is classified on the basis of the Oxford final examinations only. 'Oxford final examinations' include an essay in jurisprudence (theory of law) to be written over the summer vacation at the end of the second year, before you go abroad. Your mark for this essay counts towards your degree result. The exam in jurisprudence at the end of your final year is correpondingly shorter.

During the year abroad students on the Law with Law Studies in Europe programme study the law, not the language, of the country they are in. However, with the exception of the Law with European Law option where courses are taught in English, these legal studies are taught in the local language. Therefore an advanced competence in that language is required and this is tested as part of the admissions process.
Like our regular BA in Jurisprudence, the BA in Law with Law Studies in Europe is a 'qualifying law degree' for the purpose of practice as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales, but it does not provide any qualification for legal practice in the other European countries concerned.
The course follows the same structure as the BA in Jurisprudence but with the addition of law/language classes in the first and second years and the third year abroad.
