ur qualifying law degree Law with Business LLB(Hons) provides a detailed understanding of the legal framework that businesses operate within, preparing you for careers in the legal profession and many business environments. Taken over three years, or four years with an optional salaried placement, core learning provides practical skills in presentation, negotiation, oration, mooting and advocacy and develops an understanding of the English legal system. As you progress, option modules provide opportunities to tailor your learning. Learning is delivered through a stimulating mix of seminars, guest lectures, skills sessions and workshops. Extracurricular activities, such as industry-sponsored mooting and client interviewing competitions and pro bono work, allow you to further develop practical skills in problem-solving, critical analysis and communication. This degree is currently recognised by the Solicitors Regulation (SRA) Authority and the Bar Standards Board. It is a qualifying law degree, which means that Law LLB(Hons) graduates will have completed the academic stage of training for entry into the legal profession. The SRA have announced that they are introducing a new qualifying exam – the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE) – which will take the place of the existing Legal Practice Course. There's more information on this change in the Solicitors Qualification Exam section below. This course is one of three LLB pathways offered by Brighton Business School, alongside Law LLB(Hons) and Law with Criminology LLB(Hons). Don’t meet these entry requirements? The University of Brighton Law LLB (Hons) with integrated foundation year provides an extra year of study at foundation level for students who do not hold the academic qualifications or experience required for entry to this course. Successful completion of the foundation year enables you to progress onto year 1 of this degree.
