A key strength of the course is the possibility of a placement during the summer, between the conclusion of semester 2 of year 3 and the start of the Honours year. This provides an opportunity to practise in a professional capacity, in either the area of law or management. The rewards from this are enormous, both in terms of initial professional development and in applying theoretical principles to real-life situations.
