Studying law is stimulating in its own right, and it’s also a smart career move. If you want to practise law professionally, a law degree is the first step – but it’s also a great asset for many other careers. The OU’s Bachelor of Laws with Honours (LLB) is the most popular qualification of its kind in the UK. By the end of your studies, you’ll have the legal awareness needed to understand and apply the law, together with skills of legal analysis and methods; and you’ll be well prepared for further study or career development.
In this graduate entry version of our law degree:
You’ll enter the course directly at Stage 2, provided that you meet the entry requirements, and begin your studies with two 60-credit modules covering contract and tort law and public and criminal law.
In Stage 3, you’ll study a 60-credit module with a focus on equity, trusts and land law, plus a 30-credit module covering European law. You’ll complete your degree by choosing one from three 30-credit options.
