Law underpins our society. It’s a diverse and challenging area of study that leads to a range of career opportunities.
Our LLB programme gives you the depth of legal knowledge you need to work in this exciting field or go on to further training.
With careers fairs, guest speakers, and networking events, you can challenge yourself and really understand the profession.
Learning in practice
Studying legal theory is important, but it’s not the whole picture. You need to develop your skills as a negotiator and problem solver too.
Interactive workshops and our mock courtroom will build your confidence. You can take advantage of our extensive network of professional partners to offer pro bono legal advice to real clients, under supervision.
This is supported by our expert teaching staff, who have years of experience working in various legal professions.
This degree gives you the chance to specialise in particular legal fields and prepare for a career you’re passionate about.
In Years 2 and 3 you can choose from a variety of option units to dig deeper into specific areas. Our mentoring scheme provides further support as you decide which direction you want to take with your career.
Choose a placement or study abroad – the course offers real flexibility as you will enrol on the three-year course and then decide if a placement or overseas study is right for you once you have started your studies. You don’t have to decide now. If you opt to undertake a placement or study abroad your course will normally be four years full-time.
