Course Overview

Law regulates all aspects of society: from marriage and parenting to corporate governance or international relations between countries. To study law is to become aware of one’s legal rights and responsibilities in a variety of contexts, as well as to acquire knowledge and the research, writing and advocacy skills that enable one to argue both sides of a complex situation and devise a pragmatic, client-focused solution.

The four-year Bachelor of Civil Law allows students to focus their studies on the law to maximise their understanding of the legal process. Students can tailor this degree to particular areas of law that interest them. Throughout the programme there is an emphasis on acquiring the fundamental practical skills required of lawyers – legal research, writing, oral presentation and advocacy.

This programme is a full law degree that covers the modules for the solicitor (Law Society of Ireland) and barrister (The Honorable Society of King’s Inns) entrance exams in Ireland.

Professional Work Placement or Study Abroad

In year three of this course students will have the opportunity to spend the academic year completing professional work placement or studying abroad. Students will have the opportunity to apply for a professional work placement in a leading law firm, a corporate organisation, a public sector organisation or other suitable legal placement. Study abroad is highly recommended for students who choose to study a language (Legal French or Legal German) and are encouraged to study in our partner universities in Germany and France. We have also partnered with a number of leading universities in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, China, Finland, Hungary, Italy, India, Poland, The Netherlands, Spain and the United States of America.

What Our Students Say

Ferdia

Ferdia Breathnach |   BCL

“Studying Civil Law in NUI Galway afforded me the opportunity to delve deep into the law and initially focus on a wide range of subjects. I studied the foundations of law and formed a great understanding of the core principles and subjects that are a pre-requisite for any future career in law and have stood me in good stead to this day. The option now of the Clinical Legal Education course provided by the School of Law enables students to undergo invaluable practical experience of working in various careers in law and this opportunity should be encouraged and availed of.”
Peo

Peo Mosepele |   BCL

“This course is extremely interesting and offers a lot of diverse opportunities to students. The lectures are often interactive which makes them enjoyable to attend. Additionally, the lecturers are very approachable and always willing to help. One of the fantastic opportunities the degree has offered me was the ability to spend a year studying abroad in Southern Utah University in the US. This allowed me to broaden my experience in a unique and very interesting way. Studying Law in NUIG was one of the best decisions of my life and I would highly recommend it to anyone.”
Andrew

Andrew Barr |   Finance Associate at Arthur Cox

"Through the wonderful lecturers that served as teachers, mentors and friends, the tutors and all of my wonderful class mates, the BCL course at NUI Galway prepared me as well as possible for my career as a solicitor. The course gave me a great grounding in the law and prepared me well for law society exams. More importantly, there were plenty of opportunities afforded to me during my time there: many career fairs; many CV workshops; opportunities with my lectures to discuss current topics, past exams and learning resources. Now that I am working as a solicitor it is great to have so many colleagues in the industry that are friends from NUI Galway. I have many life long friends from my course, some of which have chosen to pursue a career as a solicitor, but many of whom have chosen other interesting careers."
