Subject

Law

This LLB (Hons) Law degree is recognised as a qualifying law degree (QLD) for professional purposes in the UK. This means it satisfies the academic stage of training set by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board for progression to the vocational stage – the Legal Practice Course (LPC) to become a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to become a barrister. If you have already decided on a career as a solicitor, you should consider our LLB (Hons) Legal Practice.

The LLB Law degree combines a balanced and stimulating legal education with practical skills and work-based learning. You will gain knowledge of the law and its application in the real world, learn how to analyse and solve problems, and how to present logical, reasoned arguments. This emphasis on skills means you’ll be ready for the challenges of any career. We encourage personal development through practical options and employability initiatives. You can gain experience at our Legal and Financial Advice Clinic, advising clients on legal issues, and on completion of appropriate modules, you can gain exemption from Part 2 of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, enabling member status.
