Course summary

OVERVIEW Law underpins our society. A law degree gives you a unique insight into everything, from the economy to the criminal justice system. And it gives you a huge range of skills that will last you throughout your career. The LLB (Hons) is your passport to a rewarding future – whether you have ambitions to be a solicitor, barrister, academic researcher, or a business person. Discover your niche We cover all the subjects you need to know; tort, contract, criminal law and property law – you’ll get a thorough grounding in the essentials. And, thanks to our teaching team’s wide range of specialisms, from families to sports, we offer exciting optional units beyond the core curriculum. Interested in gender issues? We have one of the leading experts on trans rights, Professor Stephen Whittle OBE. Practise your skills Mooting is a key part of any legal education. Our mock courtroom is the perfect place to brush up on your performance. You’ll have classes and extra-curricular activities there, and you can even use it for your final year project. Ready to test yourself in the real world? You can work with a qualified solicitor offering pro bono work to local people. You might join the Business Law Café offering advice to local SMEs, or maybe you’ll help a disadvantaged person with legal advice they wouldn’t normally be able to afford. Choose a placement or study abroad The course offers real flexibility as you will enrol on the three-year course and then decide if a placement or overseas study is right for you once you have started your studies. You don’t have to decide now. If you opt to undertake a placement or study abroad your course will normally be four years full-time. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
