We have a long-standing record of providing opportunities for LLB Hons Law students to apply to be selected to take part in placements, internships and mentoring schemes with a variety of employers in the legal and regulatory sectors.

LLB Hons Law students may apply to be selected to undertake pro bono work through various schemes run by the School, both on credit-bearing courses and as extracurricular activities. These include our Legal Advice Centre, winner of a 2015 LawWorks & Attorney General Student Pro Bono Award for its 'tremendous impact on the community'. The centre enables students to work closely with volunteer lawyers and professionally qualified members of academic staff to provide advice to the public.

The Innocence Project London is also run from the School of Law. Currently one of only ten international projects accepted as members of the US-based Innocence Network, and the only UK member, the project enables our students to apply to be selected to work on real cases concerning possible miscarriages of justice. This important work can lead to the submission of appeal applications to the Criminal Cases Review Commission.

There are opportunities to take part in mooting, including competing to be part of the team entered for the OUP and BPP Mooting Competition against other university teams.

Course details

Assessment method

In the 2014 and 2015 National Student Surveys, LLB Hons Law at Greenwich received excellent ratings for student satisfaction, reflecting the innovation and dedication of our teaching team. Our system of pastoral care has been carefully devised. Every student has his or her own personal tutor. Before arriving at the university, you will be allocated a tutor, with whom you will stay in close contact, particularly in the early weeks of term. Under our Law Parent Scheme, every first-year law student will also be allocated a peer mentor, who will be a second, or third-year, law student.

The assessment of each individual course is usually based on a mixture of formal examination and coursework. Coursework may take a number of forms, including problem-solving, essays, in-class tests, project work, dissertations and presentations.

To ensure we deliver the best learning experience for our students, the structure and delivery of courses may change to reflect knowledge and industry standards. Course options illustrated here may not be available to all students and may not run every year.
