    Description

    The LLB Law with American Law degree recognises the importance of the US in modern legal and commercial life. It presents an outstanding opportunity for students in two ways. First, students have the opportunity to study the US legal system and its foundations, the importance of the constitution and its role in modern US society and the role of lawyers in the US.

    Second, students spend a year studying alongside US law students at a leading law school in the United States. At the end of the four year degree not only will students obtain an English qualifying law degree they will also have a very good understanding of the US and its legal system.

    The LLB Law with American Law degree offers a unique opportunity to study law with a transatlantic dimension. This is a unique programme offered by a UK Law School. You will cover all the compulsory English law modules whilst also acquiring an understanding of the US and its legal system.

    Course Content

    First and Second Year:

    • A distinctive feature of this programme is that we offer specific training in American law during your first two years at the University of East Anglia. You will take compulsory English law subjects alongside American law modules specifically tailored to the course.
    • The subjects you will cover include the US legal system and its foundations, the importance of the constitution and its role in modern US society and the role of lawyers in the US.

    Third Year:

    • The year abroad is spent at a leading US Law School. At present you may attend South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas; Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, Alabama; or the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville in Kentucky. While you are required to pass the year abroad, the marks do not contribute to your final degree classification.

    Fourth Year:

    • The final year is spent at the University of East Anglia. You will take the remaining compulsory English law module alongside optional modules offered by the Law School and the University.

    Assessment on the LLB Law with American Law is by a mixture of examinations and coursework. Some optional modules are assessed entirely by coursework while others include seen, pre-release or open book exams. In addition, students are encouraged to submit non-assessed coursework regularly throughout the year, providing an opportunity for written feedback.

    Year Abroad

    Students spend their third year of study at a US Law School. The Law School has links with three prestigious and well-established US Law Schools: South Texas College of Law in Houston, Cumberland School of Law at Samford University Alabama, and the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.
    Accommodation in the US is arranged by the host Schools. Students must pay the cost of this. As a rough guide the cost of living for a student living on campus in Louisville this year was $7,000 for the whole year.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
