Our LLB Law (two-year accelerated) course has been designed to provide students with the grounding they need to pursue a successful legal career. This LLB course will teach you the seven foundations of legal knowledge, which meets the Bar Standard Board’s core academic requirements for entry onto the Bar Training Course. This two-year intensive option is ideal for those seeking faster progression of a career in law, allowing you to complete your law degree in two years rather than the standard three. At the University of Northampton, our Law LLB course includes additional optional modules alongside the traditional foundations of legal knowledge. These cover Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) topics, such as property law and practice, civil litigation, business law and criminal litigation, making it the ideal choice for students aspiring to take the SQE and qualify as solicitors. This course is also ideal for those who may not be considering a law career, as it offers flexibility to help you achieve your goals and equips you with desirable skills to stand out to employers. The two year accelerated LLB (Hons) provides an alternative to the three year qualification, allowing you to graduate and fast track your career and move onto the next stage. The intensive degree enables you to complete your degree in two years by extending the academic year into the normal vacation periods. You will need a strong academic ability and time management skills in order to be able to cope with the demands of this course. By studying at the University of Northampton, you can be sure that:
