An alternative approach to gaining a qualifying Law degree is to study on one of our ‘Law with’ degrees. These share the same core Law components as the LLB Single Honours but allow you to study another subject alongside Law to gain different insights and experience to build your own career pathway. On this course you will join a challenging, vibrant and friendly community, led by an experienced team of academics and practitioners, including solicitors, barristers and international lawyers. The foundation year helps you develop the study skills and self-confidence needed for higher education. Your degree will enable you to progress to the vocational stage of lawyer’s training, to qualify as either a solicitor or barrister. This original and innovative course has been designed in consultation with senior managers to give you both a theoretical and practical experience. As part of your degree, you will have the option to get involved with practical justice including opportunities to shadow a local judge and experience live mediations from our in-house Mediation Clinic. Through our strong links with the local community, Citizens Advice, and local courts, you will have the opportunity to act as a Community Legal Companion for unrepresented parties at court. This is an excellent opportunity for you to gain hands-on work experience in a legal setting. Professional accreditation Our degree has been designed to offer you a holistic experience studying Law; you will study theoretical backgrounds as well as practical aspects of Law. Your curriculum will offer you the foundations of legal knowledge required by the Bar Standards Board, to satisfy the academic component of professional training for intending barristers. The degree also provides a strong foundation for students who may wish to take the Solicitors Qualifying Examinations (SQE) in the future. In addition to the above, LLB students can obtain the additional professional body qualification Grad. NALP, which will qualify you as a Member of the National Association of Paralegals (NALP). This will give you a head start in undertaking your LPC or BPTC or in applying for jobs. Specialist facilities Our Mediation Clinic provides commercial, family and workplace mediation to external parties. Through our expertise in this area, we have created opportunities for our students to experience at first hand 'real-life' disputes and acquire valuable professional skills associated with a recognised method of alternative dispute resolution. Spaces are limited, though if you are particularly interested in this line of work, you are encouraged to apply for paid internships. Location This course is run at our Canterbury Campus in Kent.
