Mae rhaglen LLB y Gyfraith a'r Gymraeg yn heriol ac yn gyffrous ac yn rhoi cyfle i chi feithrin y sgiliau sydd eu hangen ar gyfer gyrfa yn y gyfraith ac amrywiaeth eang o broffesiynau. Yn ogystal â'r modiwlau sylfaen sy'n cynnwys y cam hyfforddi academaidd sydd ei angen er mwyn dod yn gyfreithiwr neu'n fargyfreithiwr yng Nghymru a Lloegr, y cyfeirir ato fel 'Gradd Gymhwyso yn y Gyfraith', rydym yn cynnig amrywiaeth eang o feysydd astudio dewisol sy'n cwmpasu pynciau cyfreithiol traddodiadol a chyfoes. Mae’r rhaglen yn cael ei haddysgu ar y cyd gan ysgolion y Gymraeg, a’r Gyfraith a Gwleidyddiaeth, gan roi cyfle i chi astudio’n fanwl yn naill ddisgyblaeth a’r llall.

Mae ein gradd yn eich galluogi chi i gwblhau cyfnodau academaidd hyfforddi i fod yn fargyfreithiwr neu'n gyfreithiwr ac i symud ymlaen yn syth at y cyfnodau hyfforddi galwedigaethol ar gyfer y proffesiwn cyfreithiol yng Nghymru a Lloegr: y Cwrs Hyfforddiant Bar Proffesiynol neu'r Cwrs Ymarfer Cyfreithiol. Ni yw’r unig Brifysgol yng Ngr?p Russell i gynnig y ddau gwrs hyn, sydd yn golygu bod gennych y dewis i aros gyda ni yng Nghaerdydd i gwblhau eich addysg gyfreithiol gyfan. Yn rheolaidd, mae’r Cwrs Ymarfer Cyfreithiol wedi cael sgôr uchaf yr Awdurdod Rheoleiddio Cyfreithwyr / Cymdeithas y Gyfraith.

Mae datganoli Llywodraeth Cymru a chyflwyno Deddf yr Iaith Gymraeg wedi golygu bod y gallu i siarad a deall Cymraeg at lefel uchel yn ddeniadol i gyflogwyr. Mae astudio yng Nghaerdydd yn gyfle i elwa ar ymchwil sy’n berthnasol i’r gymdeithas sy'n cyfrannu at ddatblygiad y Gymraeg yn yr unfed ganrif ar hugain.

Nodweddion nodedig

Rydym wedi ymrwymo i ddatblygu eich cyflogadwyedd, gydag ein Hymgynghorydd Gyrfaoedd pwrpasol wrth law ddau ddiwrnod yr wythnos yn adeilad y Gyfraith. Rydym yn cynnig amrywiaeth o weithgareddau allgyrsiol, rhai sy’n unigryw i Brifysgol Caerdydd, sydd yn rhoi mantais gystadleuol i’n myfyrwyr.

Cynlluniau Pro Bono*

Rydym yn gweithio mewn partneriaeth â chyfreithwyr, elusennau a sefydliadau gwirfoddol i roi'r cyfle i fyfyrwyr ymarfer ac ehangu eu sgiliau.

Dau o’n cynlluniau mwyaf sefydledig yw ein Prosiect Dieuog (y cyntaf yn y DU i wrthdroi dyfarniad o euogrwydd gan y Llys Apêl) a’n Cynllun Gofal Iechyd Parhaus y GIG sy’n unigryw i Gaerdydd.

Mae’r ddwy fenter wedi ennill neu wedi cael lle ar restr fer dyfarniadau cenedlaethol o fri ac wedi rhoi cymorth i grwpiau bregus ac aelodau o’r gymuned sy’n cael trafferth cael mynediad at gymorth cyfreithiol. Gallwch hefyd wneud cais am le ar ein cynllun gydag Undeb Rygbi Cymru, lle’r ydym yn cynghori clybiau rygbi amatur ar faterion cyfreithiol.

Mae’r broses ymgeisio ar gyfer pob un o'n cynlluniau yn wahanol ac ni allwn warantu y bydd myfyrwyr yn sicrhau lle ar y cynllun o'u dewis, nac ar unrhyw un o'n cynlluniau. Mae ein portffolio yn cael ei adolygu'n rheolaidd ac mae’r hyn rydym yn ei gynnig yn gallu newid.

Ymryson (Mooting)

Caiff ein myfyrwyr eu hannog i gystadlu mewn cystadlaethau ymryson blynyddol. Mae'r cystadlaethau hyn yn rhoi cyfle i chi gyflwyno materion cyfreithiol gerbron barnwr, yn erbyn cwnsler sy’n gwrthwynebu.

Mae ymryson yn sgil wych i chi ei hychwanegu at eich CV ac mae’n rhoi profiad gwerthfawr o siarad yn gyhoeddus mewn lleoliad ffurfiol.

Cystadleuaeth cyfweld â chleientiaid

Anogir ein myfyrwyr i gymryd rhan mewn cystadleuaeth cyfweld cleientiaid flynyddol, gyda Syr Geoffrey Bindman QC yn Llywydd arni.

Byddwch yn meithrin profiad cyfweld a chwnsela mewn lleoliad ffug a byddwch yn cael eich asesu yn erbyn meini prawf asesu penodol sy’n cynnwys sgiliau rhyngbersonol a’ch gallu i ddelio gyda phroblemau cyfreithiol.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Law graduates tend to go into the legal industry, and they usually take similar routes. Jobs are competitive — often very competitive - but starting salaries are good and high fliers can earn serious money - starting on over £24k in London on average. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into, and the industry is changing as the Internet, automation and economic change all have an effect, If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification — many law graduates then go on to law school. If you want to go into work, then a lot of law graduates take trainee or paralegal roles and some do leave the law altogether, often for jobs in management, finance and the police force. A small proportion of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Management, accountancy and teaching are all popular for these career changers, so if you do take a law degree and decide it’s not for you, there are options.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
