Our Law with Business and Management (with placement year) LLB (Hons) degree is designed for those interested in both law and business management, those considering a career as an in-house lawyer, or those looking to build their legal expertise in a particular area of business. The programme is taught by a mix of academic experts and practitioner lawyers, who put real world clinical legal experience at the heart of the programme. You’ll develop a critical grasp of the law and its political, social, corporate and economic contexts, and undertake a year in business in your third year. We offer a range of LLB Law programmes which share common modules – the Law with Business Management degree adds specialist modules covering a range of management, business, finance and marketing disciplines, making it the perfect choice for an agile, commercially aware aspiring lawyer. Upon successful completion of the Bradford LLB Law degree, you are able to proceed to the Legal Practice Course (for aspiring solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course (for aspiring barristers). Professional Accreditation The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board have accredited the Bradford LLB as a qualifying law degree. This means that, if you successfully complete the assessments and examinations in the seven foundations of legal knowledge and legal skills training, you will be eligible for exemption from the academic stages of training and be able to continue to the postgraduate study and practical-based training stages needed to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.
