Whether you’re looking to become a solicitor or a barrister, the LLB is the main route that people take towards getting qualified in the legal profession. It’s your first step on the way to what could be a brilliant, dynamic and rewarding career.

This course gives you the chance to gain a firm understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts. As you progress you’ll be able to start focussing on the topics that interest you, particularly in your second and third years, when you can choose from a range of specialised modules.

Whichever side of law you go into, employers will be looking for a wide variety of skills, not just an understanding of law, but how to apply that understanding, how to put forward an argument, attention to detail, and the ability to work in a team. We’ll help you to build your skills while you study and make yourself more attractive to potential employers.

To help you take the first steps on your legal career we aim to give you as much experience as possible. Our Partners in Law scheme is a pretty unique service that could give you all the support you need. We can provide you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through our links with regional and internationally renowned legal firms.

Our pioneering Partners in Law scheme provides you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities via regional and internationally renowned legal firms. Firms involved in the partnership include Pinsent Masons, DLA Piper, Walker Morris, Eversheds, Hammonds, Chadwick Lawrence, Armitage Sykes, Ramsdens Solicitors, Eaton Smith, Ridley and Hall, Switalskis, Wilkinson Woodward and Kirklees Council Legal Services.


If you are thinking of becoming a solicitor please read the following statement which we received in April 2017 from the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The SRA specifies the qualification requirements for solicitors.

“The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced it will be introducing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), the earliest date for introduction is September 2020.

This will be a national assessment for anyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. It will provide a fair and consistent assessment for all candidates regardless of whether they have taken a law degree or qualified through new routes like the solicitor apprenticeship.

If you have already started your law degree, or will do so before the SQE is introduced, you will be able to finish and qualify in the same way as before or qualify under the new system. The SRA will be providing information and guidance about how to qualify in the new system so keep checking its website.
