"I attended an offer-holder day and was immediately interested in what the law entailed. The university is very welcoming and the lecturers are very supportive. The law school offers a wide range of opportunities, especially for students from a non-law background. The course is very well organised and the teaching is very in-depth and highly stimulating. The course allows us to gain knowledge over a broad range of subjects."

"Law is a profession where one has the ability to help those that are less fortunate. I chose to study law at the University of Bolton because the balance between the practical aspects of law and the academic aspects is perfect, and is what I enjoy most about the course."

"I have experienced a taster day at Bolton Coroners Court, where I was able to discuss proceedings with the Assistant Coroner Dr Duncan, and the Coroners First Officer. I experienced the judiciary in a different form compared to other courts I have experienced. In the Coroners Court it was clear that the family of the deceased were made a much higher priority, for example being given an opportunity to ask witnesses questions for themselves, and being given an opportunity to address the Coroner. It was interesting to see how the inquisitorial system in place allows the families of the deceased to take a much higher priority than claimants or victims in adversarial courtrooms. While the difference in other courtrooms is obviously necessary it was, nevertheless, an interesting difference in tone."
