LLB (Hons) Law ranked number 2 in the UK for student satisfaction, with 97% overall satisfaction, and ranked number 1 for academic support. (NSS 2020) Solent University’s LLB has been designed to give graduates maximum flexibility when choosing their future progression. The course complies with Solicitors Regulation Authority requirements for graduate entry and Bar Standards Board requirements for a qualifying law degree and is designed to prepare you for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) giving you a recognised base of legal and professional knowledge that can make you the ideal choice for a wide range of legal and corporate roles. Taught by experts with strong links to the legal profession, the course gives you plenty of opportunities for practical experience and to develop your own professional network. The course team’s practical expertise and open-door policy ensure you will be well supported academically – while the university’s dedicated support services offer plenty of help with any other aspects of student life. And as a founding member of Southampton City Law Network, we offer a programme of workshops and guest lectures from visiting professionals – as well as events, work experience opportunities, and chances to explore the legal profession and decide which career path to follow. You will have access to specialist facilities, too – from the University’s moot courtroom, which enables you to practice your legal skills in a realistic environment, to an extensive library of legal journals, case law and online materials. But the LLB offers training for other avenues of legal practice as well, delivering a range of professional and transferrable skills tailored to the corporate and business world. The modules incorporate both theory and practice – enabling you to understand legal processes and the fast-changing legal environment. You will be encouraged not only to develop habits of lifelong learning, but also to develop the professional awareness and personal attributes to effectively continue your development as a professional long after you graduate. A law degree that builds towards the Solicitors Regulation Authority’s new pathway to qualification, the Solicitor’s Qualifying Examination. What does this course lead to? A law degree provides a wide variety of transferable skills relevant to both legal practice and other areas. Following graduation, many students go on to train as a solicitor or barrister, while others pursue careers as legal executives, company secretaries or licensed conveyancers, or in areas such as business, property management and marketing, taxation, legal and financial compliance, local and central government, the police service, or paralegal work. Who is this course for? Solent’s LLB degree is ideally suited to students looking to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister and also to those seeking a career in other legal and business professional environments, from commerce to the civil service.
