Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Greenwich has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This two-year qualifying law degree is designed for students who already have an undergraduate degree in another discipline. It combines the acquisition of
knowledge of substantive law with the development of transferable skills and, wherever possible, places law within the wider context of social, political, moral and economic issues.

This course allows for a more in-depth study of the law and the theoretical principles that underlie it than a Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) – it would therefore
suit someone with a real interest in law, who wishes to study the academic principles as well as the practical application of the law.

Much like our other LLB courses, the Senior Status course has a focus on the employability of its students, and the School of Law has good links with law firms,
barristers’ chambers and financial institutions in London.


Please note that it is the School of Law’s understanding that there is NO student funding available to students on our LLB Senior Status degree because all students on the programme will already hold an undergraduate degree. For more information on our fees, and to contact our University Finance Team, please see:

What careers could I pursue?

This degree is currently recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board as exempting students from the academic stage of study. Successful completion of the degree will allow graduates to undertake the further training required in order to qualify to practise as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

Law graduates are also sought after by banks and other financial institutions, local government and by a wide range of employers looking for good analytical
and communication skills.

Please note: all employability and extra-curricular opportunities on this degree may be open only to certain students, and may require successfully passing a selection process.
