Course summary

TEF Bronze

University Centre Leeds, Leeds City College has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.

Find out more about the TEF.

The Bachelor of Laws Degree has been designed so as to encompass modules which will assist work related skills and professional development skills, and modules which will allow for a Qualifying Degree status. In the final year, students can complete modules which will allow for dual qualification upon completion of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives Graduate Fast Track Diploma. A distinctive feature of the LLB programme is that students have the chance to complete their three year programme of study and be qualified to practice law as a Graduate Fellow of CILEX, in addition to the option for further study to qualify as a solicitor or barrister through the LPC or BPTC.

The timing of the modules allows for coverage of the foundation law subjects in the first two years and the Level 4 and Level 5 modules are all compulsory. At level 6, students have the opportunity to choose from a number of options that allow for specialisation, in addition to a compulsory dissertation.

The aim of the degree is to develop the ability to appraise legal principles critically, to be logical and balanced in argument, to undertake research from legal sources, and to develop clear and fluent legal skills.

The theoretical parts are complemented by more practical elements, including visits and moots and innovative forms of assessment that develop the vocational skills necessary for the practice of law. The transferable skills acquired are extremely valuable to employers and so beneficial when seeking work in the legal sector.
