Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (graduate entry) (R82)

Course summary

If you already have a degree or masters degree in any subject from a UK university or recognised overseas university, you can choose this route to a law degree. This graduate entry law degree will give you the legal knowledge to understand and apply the law, together with skills of legal analysis. Alongside studying the foundation subjects of law such as contract law, public law and the law of trusts, it offers the flexibility to tailor your study according to whether you wish to gain a law degree as an academic degree, a degree that prepares you to become a barrister in England and Wales, a barrister or solicitor in Northern Ireland, or provides a foundation to take the national Solicitors Qualifying Examination (specifically SQE1). By the end of the degree, you’ll be prepared with the knowledge and skills needed for a legal career. When combined with what you’ve learnt from your previous degree, this will make you an excellent candidate for any law firm. Key features of the course

  • Offers a fast-track to gaining a law degree in just two years
  • Covers the Foundations of Legal Knowledge.
  • Provides a foundation if you're planning to prepare for the national Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE1).
  • Offers practical experience through an online law clinic and other online projects


This graduate-entry version of our law degree has two stages. You’ll start by building your knowledge of contract law and public law. You'll also choose two modules from Business and employment law; Evidence law; Family law; and International, environmental and space law; letting you focus on aspects of law that are of particular interest. To complete the degree, your modules will be determined by whether you choose the Foundations of Legal Knowledge route, the Academic Law Degree route or the Solicitors Qualifying Examination route.
