Course description

The courseâ??s professional accreditations ensure that it is providing high standards of education and training for future barristers and solicitors. These accreditations also act as a seal of approval from the industry, showing employers that the course meets the standards set by the industry itself. As a qualifying law degree, this LLB programme also exempts students from the initial stages of solicitor or barrister training for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This can shorten future professional training requirements by as much as one year. The Universityâ??s moot courtroom enables students to practice their legal skills and gain courtroom experience.

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. Be aware though - some careers, especially as barristers, can take a while to get into. If you want to qualify to practise law, you need to take a professional qualification and 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 – about one in 17 last year– of law graduates also move into another field for further study. Psychology, business and social studies 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.
