Course summary

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. Giving you the very best in legal teaching, this degree gives you access to seven Foundations of Legal Knowledge (FLK) modules as well as many different optional modules from your second year onwards with a whole third year devoted to your own choices. You can create a business law pathway, social justice and human rights pathway or focus on wider areas of law such as family law, environmental law or international law. This degree is for students who choose careers in law, such as becoming a solicitor or barrister, as well as the wider associated professions in business, finance, education, public policy and public service. It also provides the ideal bridge towards postgraduate study. Taking a Huddersfield Law School degree means you can choose to take an LLB in Law, LLB in Law and Practice or an MLaw (incorporating LLB) as an integrated Masters in Law and Practice. Whichever pathway you choose, all degree programmes support you in exploring your options and the career path you wish to take and you can change your route right through into your second year and choose the path that is best for you, for your final year. We also offer an LLB in Law with Criminology, if you want to study a different discipline alongside law. As well as gaining an understanding of the law itself, studying a law degree will teach you a wide range of essential transferrable skills such as how to construct an argument, how to present yourself and your ideas, 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. 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. How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures and group work sessions.

  • You’ll gain a firm understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts.
  • You’ll be able to start focusing on the topics that interest you in your second year and spend the whole of your third year studying your choices from a range of specialised modules.
  • Our strong alumni networks provide wide opportunities to engage with local legal practitioners working in regionally and internationally renowned firms. Our Law School Professional Mentoring scheme supported by solicitors, is a particular success which enables our students to bridge the gap between education and working in the legal sector.
  • You may decide to take up the opportunity to be part of our Legal Advice Clinic, where you will work closely with practising solicitors and help them with real cases.*
