Program description

Law LLB (Hons)

The LLB Law degree covers the ‘foundation law subjects’ required by the Bar Standards Board, including tort, contract, criminal, and property law. It also introduces practical skills such as case analysis, negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, drafting, interviewing and mooting.

You'll develop the ability to understand connections between legal topics; this replicates legal and paralegal practice, where problems are rarely neatly packaged. You'll also be supported to develop your professional practice and employability skills throughout the degree.

You'll select from a range of interdisciplinary options including business, criminology and sociology, as well as law options such as corporate law, employment law or entertainment, media and intellectual property law. This will enable you not only to be a better lawyer – due to your experiences outside of a legal education framework – but will also provide you with better employment prospects if you choose not to follow a career in law.

We'll encourage you to undertake a work placement, and the law clinic in the third year is an experiential learning option that will give you the opportunity to provide legal advice to clients.

Admission requirements

We accept a wide range of qualifications for entry to our undergraduate programmes. Typical offers include A-level grades CCC preferred. Applicants will need to demonstrate a strong interest in Law in their personal statement.

Career opportunities

The combination of legal knowledge with practical skills is a distinctive feature of this course; for example Contract Law with Negotiation and ADR, Property Law with Interviewing, Litigation with Mooting. This will place students wishing to qualify as solicitors in a better position to complete the practice elements of the new SQE, in comparison with those who have studied a more traditional Program. It will also develop key transferable skills that will be valuable for other career routes.

Business options such as Marketing and Creativity will further enhance employability. Being given an opportunity to understand the theoretical underpinning of innovation and enterprise will enable you to not only be a better lawyer due to your experiences outside a legal education framework, but will also provide you with better employment prospects if you choose not to follow a career in law.
