All Buckingham LLB programmes lead to an English ‘qualifying law degree’, i.e. one that is recognised by the English Bar and Law Society as qualifying its holder to go on to a vocational course (e.g. BVC or LPC). This requires certain core foundation subjects to be covered by the degree.
Of the 360 units that make up a Buckingham LLB, 240 are devoted to Introduction to Legal Studies and the core foundation subjects. These are:
- European Law
- Constitutional and Administrative Law
- Criminal Law
- Law of Contract
- Law of Torts
- Land Law
- Law of Trusts
Some countries have additional requirements and so, if you are an overseas student, you should confirm exactly what subjects you must take in order to qualify for your jurisdiction. (The Buckingham Single Honours programmes will qualify students for most common law jurisdictions.)
LLB—Normally, you will be required to have:
- At least 300 points at A level or the equivalent school leaving qualification (although the School is able to be flexible for mature students)
- Certain approved professional qualifications may be considered in the absence of these requirements
- If English is not your first language, an IELTS score of 6.5 is required or computer-based TOEFL score of 233+
