Course summary

Our LLB (Hons) Law course is a qualifying law degree, forming an essential part of the training you need to become a barrister or a solicitor. The course will equip you with a broad understanding of key legal principles and institutions within the political, social, economic and cultural context in which the law operates. You’ll learn how the law is made and administered and explore the inter-relationships between the law, individuals and society. We give you the opportunity to build on this knowledge with a wide choice of 16 optional modules in your final year. And you’ll also have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in our acclaimed community Legal Advice Centre, working with local solicitors to provide a law clinic for the general public. This course meets all the requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. It also gives a fast track to achieve qualifications as a legal executive or for the insurance and financial services industries. You’ll also have the chance to spend a term at one of our partner institutions in Holland, France or Germany.
