Course summary

Studying law is stimulating in its own right, and it’s also a smart career move. If you want to practise law professionally, a law degree is the first step – but it’s also a great asset for many other careers. The OU’s Bachelor of Laws with Honours (LLB) is the most popular qualification of its kind in the UK. By the end of your studies, you’ll have the legal awareness needed to understand and apply the law, together with skills of legal analysis and methods; and you’ll be well prepared for further study or career development. If you want to become a solicitor or barrister, you’ll need to complete this degree within six years. Key features of the course
