Law, one of the oldest academic fields of study, provides refreshing insights into an ever-changing profession that commands status, prestige and the prospect of a healthy income. The University of South Wales offers both undergraduate and postgraduate courses within the law subject area. Through the study of law you will explore legal judgements and statuses whilst examining the economic, theoretical, philosophical, political and social aspects of the law and its role in society. So if you’re intrigued by the developments in law and the way it adapts to an ever-changing society, then you may relish studying law and legal activity. The University of South Wales (USW) was formed in April 2013 by the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales, Newport. As one of Britain’s most exciting new universities and a major player in higher education, the University is among the top 10 campus universities in the UK by student number and attracts a cosmopolitan mix of students from 120 countries. With over 30,000 students across five campuses, it was rated top for student support in the Times Higher Education Awards 2012.
