LLB (Hons) Law

Take your first steps into a rewarding legal career. The Derby LLB offers high-quality teaching, first-rate facilities and real-world learning. With excellence in legal practice at its core, it paves the way for you to qualify as a solicitor or barrister.

Why choose this course?

As a ‘qualifying law degree’ – meeting the criteria of the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority – the Derby LLB is an important foundation for practising law professionally. Our graduates are highly sought after for their strong practical skills underpinned by academic rigour.

Is this course for you?

We deliver a thorough undergraduate legal education so you can build all the key lawyering skills. Wide-ranging optional modules mean you can specialise in medical, international, family, employment or social and public law.

How you will learn

You will gain substantial practical experience of drafting, advocacy, interviewing, negotiation and problem-based research. We offer impressive study facilities, including courtrooms and interview suites which replicate real-life settings.

Opportunities and experiences

Our professional partnerships open doors for you to benefit from placements and internships, judicial shadowing and mentoring by established lawyers. Through ‘pro bono’ projects you can also help people who find it difficult to access justice.

If you want to become a solicitor or barrister, the Derby LLB prepares you for the next stage of training. Our graduates secure roles in the Crown Prosecution Service, private practice, the courts and law centres. Others use the qualification as a stepping stone to careers in banking, industry and education.
