Course description

It provides the essential training – delivered by professionally qualified academics - that you need to go on and become a successful solicitor or barrister - and it’s truly fascinating. You’ll learn about ground-breaking research topics like war crimes trials and women in prison from leading academics – and because of their experience in the field, you’ll also get a good practical grounding in how the law operates and how legal practices work. Weekly seminar support and regular catch-ups with your dedicated personal tutor will ease you into university-level study - we’ll give you all the support you need to become a highly employable, knowledgeable legal professional. Successful completion of the LLB (Hons) enables you to go on to the professional element of legal training either as a solicitor (the Legal Practice Course) or as a barrister (the Bar Professional Training Course). Further academic study can be pursued by way of a Masters in Law, LLM, or a doctorate, PhD. Our students are valued highly by employers due to their aptitude and skills profile. They have an impressive track record of gaining graduate level jobs or professional training contracts. UCLan graduates are highly sought-after and you’ll find our alumni working as judges, Queen’s Counsel, barristers and solicitors across the UK and around the world. You’ll develop skills that are attractive to a range of employers - you could find yourself working for a football club or insurance company, within the probation service or the police force, for the civil service or a local government office - in a variety of roles over and above solicitor or barrister: CEO, business leader, teacher, academic, researcher, board representative.

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.
