Course description

The LLB (Hons) Law degree can be a popular choice for students looking for an exciting and challenging career. This degree covers core principles of the English legal system including criminal law, constitutional law and European Union law, and supports students to develop important legal skills. Lincoln’s LLB (Hons) Law degree has been designed to offer a fascinating and challenging programme of study, which can act as the first step towards a career in the legal profession. It aims to provide students with the key skills and knowledge which will enable them to go on and study towards qualifications as barristers or solicitors, should they choose to do so. Students have the opportunity to reflect upon policy, and the social, political, ethical, philosophical and cultural contexts in which law operates. Students may choose areas of law in which they have a particular interest in addition to the core modules. By the end of the course, it is expected that students will have had the opportunity to develop a broad legal education and a deeper understanding of the changing and dynamic nature of law and how it operates in practice.


In the first year, students are encouraged to gain an understanding of the context of the English legal system – its origins, history and practices. Students have the opportunity to study constitutional and administrative law, contract law and tort law, whilst developing important practical legal skills such as mooting (simulated court proceedings). The core modules in the second year are Criminal Law, European Union Law and Land Law. Students can also choose areas of law in which they have a particular interest, in addition to the core modules. There are many options from which to choose, these may include Environmental Law, Intelligence and Security Law and Company Law. In the final year, students can learn about equity and trusts and have the opportunity to select further modules which may include Consumer Law, Employment Law, Law of Evidence, Law in Practice, and International Law. Students also have the option of writing a dissertation or having their voluntary work in the student-led Law Clinic recognised by undertaking a formal, assessed module. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.

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.
