I have really enjoyed my law course so far. The lectures are generally very good, and the course content is taught very clearly. There are a wide range of module choices for everyone, and the law faculty are really I informative and up to date. There are a range of networking events and activities that are set up by the law department.

Law, LLB Hons

noticed a dramatic drop in quality from first year to second year, when you would think they would prioritise us. Given tutors who do not have a clue about the subject area (they tell us this), and nothing is done despite numerous complaints, we feel like we have to teach ourselves. Low contact hours mean you are just dropped into it. Personal tutor is in name only, you do not have any contact with them at all. Sessions often finish earlier than planned and you sit there feeling like there is no value for money at all which is frustrating. Can be treated like school children at times. Poor organisation of the law school due to self-confessed lack of staff. Despite this, law at Durham offers good careers prospects and an excellent careers team.

A tough degree but with excllent staff helping you all the way. The volume of work is often slightly greater compared to other courses, but if you manage to keep up; you'll be fine.

Teaching is of a top standard however would maybe like a bit more guidance with lectures (maybe one lecture on the subject of our essays).

Fantastic academic department (with a few exceptions). I love this course and its content is quite stimulating, interesting, and engaging. Durham provides so many opportunities to meet with firms and increase the quality of your CV!
