Description

LLB Law (graduate programme) provides you with the opportunity to learn about the law, both in the traditional sense of 'thinking like a lawyer' and in the broader sense of law as a social institution.

This is a Qualifying Law Degree which, if taken after an undergraduate degree in another subject, enables you to progress directly to the vocational stage of legal education should you wish to qualify as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. It is also recognised in a number of other jurisdictions.

The programme attracts both students from the UK and abroad, from countries such as Canada, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Cyprus, Pakistan and the United States. This generates a wealth of experience and brings a range of views to topical discussions.

The programme covers the same foundational subjects as the 3 year LLB programme, and offers some opportunity for study of options.

Develop your interests

We offer a wide range of study options throughout the LLB programme, allowing you to develop your interests in the specialist legal areas of your choice.

If you are interested in commercial and corporate law, you can take courses in Company Law and Employment Law. However, if your interests lie in the field of criminal justice, you can study Criminology, or Policing. Other options of more general interest include Environmental Law, Evidence and Family Law.

If you want to ...
  • convert to law from a first degree in another discipline
  • graduate with a qualifying law degree
  • cover the seven foundations of legal knowledge
  • pursue a programme that consolidates a three year law degree into two years

... then choose LLB law (graduate programme).
