Course summary

Our LLB Law course is a qualifying law degree. That means it’s recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council as the first step on your journey to becoming a qualified solicitor or barrister. Our tutors will also help you to find work experience that’s suited to your interests. Our location means that London, and all the opportunities it offers, is within easy reach. You’ll also benefit from our small classes, supportive and experience tutors, and valuable networking opportunities. Why study this subject? Law is one of the most complex and fascinating systems in the world. It’s constantly evolving to reflect and adapt to social attitudes. Careers in law are varied and challenging. An LLB (Hons) Law degree will help you develop the knowledge and skills to meet those challenges head on and build a successful career. Why study at Buckinghamshire New University? Our lecturers are practitioners as well as academics, bringing depth and different perspectives to your studies. They also work with industry and professional bodies to develop our curriculum and the course modules, which include finance, company law, family law, criminal justice, employment law, media, and criminal justice. This LLB Law degree will help you develop, not only the core knowledge and understanding of the substance and processes of many areas of law, but also high-level skills in communication, analysis, problem-solving and research, which are essential in many other areas of life. A degree in Law is a challenging course, but it is one that brings great rewards during and after the course. Many of our students have told us how they have been transformed and empowered by the experience with us and have gone on to do things that they never thought they would have been able to. What will I study? Among the subjects you'll study are the ‘foundation’ subjects of Law: Criminal law, Contract law, Tort, Public law, European Union law, Land law and Equity and trusts. This means that our LLB is recognised as a “Qualifying Law Degree” (QLD) by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council, and so satisfies the first stage of qualification as a solicitor or barrister. How will I be taught and assessed? The course is underpinned by classroom-based teaching of current theory, concepts and research, delivered through a blend of lectures, interactive seminars and workshops, small-group activities and debates. Lectures are used to provide frameworks within which you can develop your learning and understanding. They are primarily lecturer-led but interactive in style. Dependent upon level and content, they may include student-based activity and will always provide opportunity for you to raise questions. The frameworks delivered within the lecture sessions include those of method, concept, rule, policy, and (legal) cultural norms. You're provided with study guides and other written materials to support your learning. You can also use the virtual learning environment to complement the teaching. Seminars and workshops are student-centred. Seminars provide a context for the examination and use of knowledge gained in plenary sessions and in private study. They are based upon case-study based problems, questions and research activities that are set out in study materials. You're expected to read, research, and prepare answers for the seminar or workshop questions. Information and ideas are exchanged and discussed. Difficulties and uncertainties are addressed. A variety of assessments are used, all designed to mirror ‘real world’ legal issues, problems and situations and allow you to demonstrate the skills you’ve acquired. Some modules contain specific forms of assessment applicable only to that module: for instance, the Court Day reflective account; the legal advice session; assessment by submission of a portfolio of work; viva examinations; and preparation of CVs and career plans.
