The LL.B (Hons) Senior Status is a 2 year full-time LL.B. It is only available for students who have an undergraduate degree. It is aimed at students who wish to convert to the study of law but want to study over a 2 year period (rather than go down the route of the PgDL). It leads to the award of an LL.B which meets the academic stage of training for the BPC/LLM Bar Practice and also allows progression onto the LLM Legal Practice (SQE1&2). Students will study the foundation subjects but have the benefit of being able to select 4 law option subjects so as to enhance career development prospects.
