Course description

The LLB (Hons) at City provides students with the essential legal and academic skills to be successful in law as well as a range of transferable skills sought after in many other sectors. As a qualifying law degree, students can progress their studies to either the Legal Practice Course (LPC) to become a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to embark on a career at the Bar. The LLB (Hons) at The City Law School provides students with the knowledge and skills to pursue a successful career in law. As one of London’s major law schools, the school offers an impressive range of academic and professional courses, for students and practitioners at all stages of legal education. Our LLB is recognised by the Law Society of England and Wales/Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council/Bar Standards Board as satisfying the initial or academic stage of legal training. The City Law School offers a friendly and stimulating environment for you to study in with personal feedback sessions and tutorials to underpin student learning from lectures. Students are encouraged to take part in Pro Bono work and are taught essential mooting skills from the first year.


In years one and two, students will study the core legal subjects common to all undergraduate law degrees, including Employability, an elective unique to The City Law School, focusing on CV preparation, interview skills and understanding the job market. In your final year, students can choose from a wide range of elective subjects that allow you to study in a specialised field and gain important professional skills for your future career. The range of elective subjects offered, (subject to availability and demand), includes several electives rarely offered at undergraduate level such as Aviation Law, Forensic Science, Media Law, Sports Law and more.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
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.
