Take your first step to becoming a solicitor or barrister at Anglia Law School. Our course will qualify you for the next stage of your legal training. On the way, you’ll learn skills that will give you a step-up in other careers, and you could be awarded a Higher Diploma in Paralegal Practice.
This qualifying law degree, accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB), will allow you progress to the vocational stage of training as a solicitor or barrister. It is also recognised for the purpose of enrolment as an advocate in India subject to Bar Council of India rules.

You’ll study both academic and practical aspects of the law, which, as well as preparing you for a legal career, will give you many skills that are highly valued in other occupations. We encourage you to focus on your areas of interest and develop specialisms, such as business and the law, family law, criminal law and procedure and/or civil law and litigation.

By choosing, and successfully completing, particular modules you could graduate with two awards: the LLB (Hons) and Higher Diploma in Paralegal Practice from the National Association of Licensed Paralegals. The Higher Diploma can help you to secure a job as a paralegal. It can also give you a head start with the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), by introducing you to some of the skills you’ll develop on these courses.

Our experienced lecturers will guide and support you throughout your studies. You’ll take part in lectures, tutorials, workshops, guest speakers, case studies, seminar presentations, mooting (debating points of law before a judge), group work and projects. Wherever possible, we’ll try to schedule your classes over no more than four days a week. We understand the importance of one-to-one time with tutors, so you’ll always have someone to discuss course-related or personal matters with, as well as plan your future career.
