Our four-year Politics, Philosophy, and Law (PPL) LLB is the first of its kind in the UK. Jointly delivered by The Dickson Poon School of Law, the Department of Political Economy, and the Department of Philosophy, it offers students the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in these three disciplines while simultaneously achieving a law degree. In addition to their comprehensive legal training, students will explore contemporary political, philosophical, and legal theory. As they advance in their studies, the flexible curriculum structure offers access to a wide range of modules, enabling students to align their studies with their interests and future aspirations.
