Course summary

The LLB (Hons) Law degree can be a popular choice for students looking for an exciting and challenging career. This degree covers core principles of the English legal system including criminal law, constitutional law and European Union law, and supports students to develop important legal skills. Lincoln’s LLB (Hons) Law degree has been designed to offer a fascinating and challenging programme of study, which can act as the first step towards a career in the legal profession. It aims to provide students with the key skills and knowledge which will enable them to go on and study towards qualifications as barristers or solicitors, should they choose to do so. Students have the opportunity to reflect upon policy, and the social, political, ethical, philosophical and cultural contexts in which law operates. Students may choose areas of law in which they have a particular interest in addition to the core modules. By the end of the course, it is expected that students will have had the opportunity to develop a broad legal education and a deeper understanding of the changing and dynamic nature of law and how it operates in practice.

Modules

In the first year, students are encouraged to gain an understanding of the context of the English legal system – its origins, history and practices. Students have the opportunity to study constitutional and administrative law, contract law and tort law, whilst developing important practical legal skills such as mooting (simulated court proceedings). The core modules in the second year are Criminal Law, European Union Law and Land Law. Students can also choose areas of law in which they have a particular interest, in addition to the core modules. There are many options from which to choose, these may include Environmental Law, Intelligence and Security Law and Company Law. In the final year, students can learn about equity and trusts and have the opportunity to select further modules which may include Consumer Law, Employment Law, Law of Evidence, Law in Practice, and International Law. Students also have the option of writing a dissertation or having their voluntary work in the student-led Law Clinic recognised by undertaking a formal, assessed module.

Additional fee information

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs. With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost.
