Course description

The unique structure of Buckinghamâ??s LLB degree allows our students to become confident, competent lawyers, able to practise almost anywhere in the world after just two years (eight or nine terms) of study. The University of Buckingham has a first-class reputation for teaching, academic support, employability opportunities and student life. The University has been consistently ranked as the top university for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey. Like all the Universityâ??s departments, the Law School and the School of Humanities are committed to teaching and learning excellence. Members of staff are experts in their subjects and experienced university lecturers and teachers. Many members of staff in the Law School are also legal practitioners who can bring their professional expertise to their teaching. Others have come to law teaching with other expertise â?? for example with arbitration experience in the world of law in commerce â?? so allowing them to enliven the study of law as part of the real world. The Universityâ??s emphasis on small group tutorials and seminars encourages students with guidance from their tutors to develop their own ideas and knowledge and to acquire new skills that will be invaluable in life after their degree. The Universityâ??s four-term academic year means that students can complete an LLB degree in two years and go on to obtain an LLM at the University, completing both degrees in three years. Combined Honours students on the Law with French course can opt to start in January or September.

University of Buckingham

Green Campus

Buckingham is unique. It is the only independent university in the UK with a Royal Charter, and probably the smallest with around 2,000 students. Honours degrees are achieved in two intensive years of study. We keep class sizes small, with a student:academic staff ratio of 10.5:1 and the Oxbridge style tutorial groups are often personalised and always exhilarating.

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.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from French courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. About one in seven get jobs elsewhere in the EU – often as English teachers – which is much higher than for most subjects. Those who want to stay at home to work find jobs in education, and anywhere good communication skills are a must. That means you can find French graduates in marketing, business and finance and the arts - as events organisers, projects managers, management consultants, and, of course, translators. But remember, whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.
