**Why Law? Whether you’re intending to use the LLB degree as the start of your legal career in the legal profession, or as the stepping stone for other career opportunities, make Huddersfield Law School your first choice to what could be a brilliant, dynamic and rewarding future.** We believe studying should support you in gaining a wide variety of learning skills, as well as an understanding of law, an appreciation of how to apply that understanding, how to put forward an argument, the importance of attention to detail, and the ability to work in a team as well as on your own initiative. We’ll help you to build your employability skills while you study, making you stand out to potential employers. We offer an LLB degree programme that can lead to either an LLB in Law or an LLB in Business Law depending on the modules you decide to select, as well as an LLB in Law and Criminology. All degree programmes support you in exploring your options and the career path you wish to take. On the LLB Law course we also give you the opportunity to take a placement year that could see you working in a business and gaining real world experience. At the end of your degree you may decide to continue your studies and apply for our LLM in Law and Global Governance, and even go on to study at PhD level becoming an expert in an area of Law. How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions.
