Our LLB (Hons) Law and Legal Practice has been redesigned to meet the changes that have been made to how you qualify as a lawyer. However, a law degree is not just for those who wish to pursue a legal career. Irrespective of your career aspirations, our practice-based LLB will equip you with skills that are in demand by employers. On our LLB, academic knowledge is brought to life. Throughout the course you will put that knowledge into real-life practice, providing you with a practice-based and vocational exposure. For example, the Criminal Law and Practice module covers the traditional academic knowledge, but it then departs from a traditional Criminal Law module and covers criminal proceedings in the magistrates’ courts and the crown court; bail; allocation hearing; disclosure of evidence; and sentencing. On our Equity, Wills and Probate module you will learn how to write a will, using software that lawyers use within their practice. You will be taught by tutors who not only have experience of teaching law, but who also practise (or have practised) law as a Chartered Legal Executive, Solicitor or Barrister. Home Students Only: When you enrol on the LLB you will be provided with a free laptop. All students will be provided with access to our Virtual Learning Environment, online library and eBooks. We aim to provide you with a 21st Century technology-advanced educational experience where there are no hidden costs. Your tuition fees are fully inclusive – finance will not be a barrier to your ultimate success. By the end of your degree, you will:
- Be able to make an active contribution to our Bloomsbury Law Clinic, providing you with invaluable clinical legal experience
- Develop the essential practical legal knowledge and skills to enable you to secure quality legal (or non-legal) work experience during the course
- Be “work ready” when you graduate, having been equipped with specialist and practical legal knowledge and skills, enabling you to secure highly skilled employment
- Satisfy the CILEx Regulation knowledge and skills education standards, if you seek to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive
- Be prepared for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) Part 1 if you seek to qualify as a Solicitor
- Be prepared for the Barrister’s vocational stage of training if you seek to qualify as a Barrister

We use a range of new and traditional assessment methods to allow you to explore and express your abilities. They are not just a way of assessing whether something has been learned, but an opportunity to develop skills that will equip you in your future life and career. We aim to provide all the support you need to make sure you have the confidence and understanding to engage with your assessments. Our tutors are experienced in providing support to students who may feel unconfident in an academic environment. You can also access free support through our Learning Enhancement team.
