Subject

Law

All of our four year degrees are ideal for applicants who have only studied up to GCSE Level. This course may also be for you if you: have only a limited number of A-Levels or BTEC Level 3 qualifications; have been out of education for a while; are an EU national who graduated from high school outside of the UK. If you don’t have any formal qualifications, you could still be admitted onto the course if you pass our admissions tests and interview.

In the Foundation Year you will complete four modules. Three of these focus on general study skills and the fourth is an introduction to Law. These modules have been designed to prepare you for the next three years of your degree.

If you are eligible for funding through the Student Loans Company (SLC) you will be entitled to funding for all 4 years of the course.

This course covers the key aspects of legal theory and practice at degree level. It equips graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for an entry-level position in a wide range of areas requiring a law qualification.

The course is recognised by the legal professional bodies as a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) exempting graduates from the Academic Stage of Training for students seeking to qualify as a solicitor or barrister of England and Wales.

Students who complete the Civil Litigation and Client Care module, plus one of the other four practice-based modules, are eligible for admission as a Graduate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). This opportunity saves graduates one year of additional study. With CILEx Graduate Member status, our students will be able to use the designatory letters: GCILEx (therefore they would be LLB (Hons), GCILEx).

Upon graduation our students who opt for CILEx Graduate Member status could immediately work in a law firm in roles such as a Trainee CILEx Lawyer, Paralegal or Legal Clerk. After completing 3 years of qualifying employment in a law firm, they will be admitted as a Fellow of CILEx (FCILEx) and a Chartered Legal Executive. Fellows can represent clients in court if they qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive Advocate. They can also dual qualify as a Solicitor, without having to complete a two-year training contract.

Our LLB is one of only a handful in England and Wales which provides students with this option. Usually membership takes an additional year of study. So our LLB students who decide to pursue a career as a chartered legal executive can benefit from this very unique advantage!

This degree is a natural choice for applicants considering a career as a solicitor, barrister, chartered legal executive or paralegal. There are a diverse array of employment opportunities for Law graduates in areas such as education, journalism, public relations, business and enterprise, or across the public sector.

Modules

There are two semesters each year. Students complete 2 x 30 credit modules each semester, enabling students to concentrate on fewer modules at a time. For a full list of modules, see provider's course page.

Featured Modules:
Civil Litigation and Client Care is a module available at Level 6 that examines the key aspects of Civil Litigation, including: the underlying features that enable an act of litigation; pre-action steps before issuing a claim; initial stages of proceedings and termination of a claim prior to trial; the track allocation system; the key steps made in the progress of a claim to trial; offers of settlement and interim payments; remedies; the trial procedure; orders and judgments; enforcement of orders and judgments; appeals; costs. It enables students to critically discuss the issues and to provide practical advice and assistance within the context of a specific legal situation.
This module also exposes students to the following key aspects of Client Care: negotiation; legal writing; professional conduct issues, and; client care within a legal practice.

Aspects of International Law is an optional module available at Level 6 that introduces various key aspects of the study of both Public and Private International Law. It is designed to promote systematic knowledge and conceptual understanding of the role and functioning of international law. Upon completion, students will be able to identify and critically analyse and discuss the body of law that governs the legal relations between states as well as the legal framework which regulates relationships between individuals in the international sphere.

Assessment methods

Modules are assessed in different ways, e.g. essays, reports, portfolios, presentations and examinations.
