Course description

Our three year LLB Law course (or four-years - including integrated placement year) is a qualifying law degree, developed with consultation from the legal profession. The core and optional modules enable you to tailor your studies to reflect your interests and career aspirations.
This degree will give you more than legal knowledge. You’ll also develop essential professional and social skills to enhance your employability. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake an extended research project (dissertation). The LLB is a qualifying law degree and focuses on law and legal practice in a commercial context.
This degree is for those who want to become a solicitor or barrister. It has been designed to help you acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become a successful legal practitioner. A degree in law also provides an excellent foundation for other careers where legal knowledge is important, for example, taxation, human resource management, accountancy, regulation, and compliance.

Our recent graduates have been successful in securing roles at well-known companies such as Hays Legal, Shoosmiths, Pinsent Masons and HSBC Bank in roles such as Associate Consultant, Trainee Paralegal, Negotiations Case Handler and Senior Legal Officer.
