Program description

Law

Our flagship LLB Law program is a full time, three-year course that is both challenging and stimulating.

Study foundation modules (which constitute the academic stage of training that is currently necessary to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales) together with a wide selection of exciting, optional modules that include Environmental Law, Human Rights Law, Media Law and Family Law.

In addition to the broad-based academic training we provide, studying Law at Cardiff will offer you unique opportunities to see Law in action in a social context.

We are committed to providing an outstanding teaching and learning experience that is underpinned by excellent research activity.

We are the only Russell Group University to offer both courses currently required to qualify as a barrister or solicitor – the Bar Professional Training Course and the Legal Practice Course – which means that you have the option to stay with us in Cardiff to complete your entire legal education.

Distinctive features

Pro bono schemes

We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to give you the opportunity to practise and extend your skills through a variety of pro bono schemes.

Our students have:

  • helped overturn two convictions at the Court of Appeal through their work as part of the innocence project
  • reclaimed thousands of pounds for individuals and/or families who have paid private nursing home fees
  • provided legal support for rugby clubs and players
  • supported vulnerable adults who have been arrested.

The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2020/21 academic year. The final modules will be published by September.

Admission requirements

Typical A level offer

AAB-ABB if all qualifications taken within 3 years. Please note that General Studies, Critical Thinking and Citizenship Studies will not be accepted.

Extended Project Qualification: Applicants with grade A in the EPQ will typically receive an offer one grade lower than the standard A level offer. Please note that any subject specific requirements must still be met.
