Our LLB (Hons) Law is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Boards (BSB), and as
such is the first step to becoming a solicitor or a barrister in the UK. But if you hope to use your interest in law for a different
career, such as business or policy making, our LLB (Hons) will help you develop key transferable skills, including critical thinking
and problem-solving, that can broaden your options.
Our modules blend the academic with the practical, with options including Human Rights Law, Sports Law and Intellectual
Property Law. In the final year, you will also have the option to take up work experience with a local law firm and use your
analytical and reflective skills to investigate your own future career options.
This combination of professional and academic law is reflected in our staff team, which consists of practising solicitors as well
as research-active academics. You will always find someone to talk to, whether it’s about the course, your career or more
We work actively to improve your career prospects. Our personal tutor system will offer you structured support, and we have a
dedicated law employability champion as well as faculty employability staff. You can also take part in our mentoring scheme, to
get first-hand advice and guidance from a legal professional.
Outside of the course, you will find more help and advice at our careers events, and through the Student Union’s Law Society,
who arrange entry to competitions such as the national Mooting and Client Interviewing competitions as well as guest speakers
and field trips.
Additionally, by choosing and completing particular modules on the course, you can graduate with two awards: the LLB (Hons)
and the Higher Diploma in Paralegal Practice from the National Association of Licensed Paralegals, which can help you secure
a job as a paralegal.
