Course description

Law affects all aspects of life and society and is the mechanism for change employed by governments across the globe. From the protection of life and liberty, through corporate law to international relations, the law is centre stage. This programme is ideal if you are interested in becoming a practising solicitor or barrister, and for those seeking more wideranging careers in both the public and private sectors. Throughout the programme, you have numerous opportunities for developing vital skills such as legal research, negotiation and mooting. Mooting (presenting a legal argument) in particular brings law alive and enables you to research a case and construct an argument to defeat an opponent. These skills are invaluable as teaching techniques to help develop successful law graduates. The emphasis on skills-based learning is a core component of the programme and forms a key element in the assessment pattern. You are assessed through traditional examination methods to a minimal extent and the programme aims to give equal and appropriate emphasis to skills-based assessments. If you intend to qualify as a solicitor or barrister, you have to complete an academic stage of training before going on to a vocational stage. All law degrees recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council (known as Qualifying Law Degrees) involve the study of seven key subjects – the ‘Foundations of Legal Knowledge’. This LLB is a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board through the Joint Academic Stage Board.

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.
