Subject

Law

The LLB Law with International Study allows you to gain a qualifying law degree, alongside the opportunity to develop an appreciation of globally interconnected legal issues with a year studying at a partner institution.

Manchester's LLB will enable you to develop the skills, knowledge and professional network to be highly employable, whether you have ambitions to practise law or enter a different field of work. You will learn core law subjects, as well as being able to choose from the extensive range of optional units offered by our diverse team of law, criminology and ethics specialists.

Studying at one of the UK's most international universities means you will be given opportunities to develop connections with legal practitioners and industry professionals from across the world. Our commitment to improving our local communities will further expose you to the real impact of our work and research, and offer unique opportunities to develop the awareness and practical experience needed to forge your own career.

Combining your degree with international study will further allow you to acquire a practical understanding of legal, political and cultural issues within an international context.

**Aims**

The course aims to provide you with an understanding of law as an academic discipline, at a breadth and depth appropriate to a first degree qualification, and to satisfy the Academic Stage of training for the General Council of the Bar and the Law Society of England and Wales.

You will gain a strong grounding in the basic principles and rules of English Law and European Law and an understanding of legal principles and rules in other legal systems, as well as an appreciation of the responsibilities of lawyers to the courts, the legal profession, the community and individuals within them.

We also help you to develop a range of legal and transferable skills, and a broad understanding of society and of the role of law within society. You will be offered the chance to develop these skills and understanding during your studies and in the context of meeting members of the law profession and international staff, students and visiting speakers.

The opportunity to study abroad as part of your degree will enable you to develop a unique understanding of a legal system and issues to which you would not normally be exposed whilst studying in the UK.

**Special Features**

**Legal Advice Centre**

Gain insights into the legal profession, whilst helping members of the public with real life legal issues by volunteering at the Legal Advice Centre.

The School's Legal Advice Centre offers pro bono legal advice to the public, university staff and students. It is sponsored by major city firms and supported by the University of Law solicitors and barristers who are quality marked by the Legal Services Commission.

The Centre aim to provide practical experience for our students who are supervised by legal practitioners, and to offer a reliable service to its clients, who seek help with their legal problems and in many circumstances have nowhere else to obtain legal advice.

**Societies**

Benefit from unique experiences, networking and professional development opportunities by getting involved with one of the School's many student societies:

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

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.
