An LLB Commercial Law from Middlesex is recognised by the two main legal professional bodies, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (solicitors) and the Bar Standards Board (barristers) as a Qualifying Law Degree that satisfies the first (or ‘academic’) stage of professional legal education and training.
