Overview

LLB Hons course is a Qualifying Law Degree, designed to give you the legal tools you will need for a career as a solicitor or barrister as well as equipping you for employment in other areas if you choose not go on to a professional qualification in law.

The Solicitors’ Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board have accredited the Bradford LLB as a qualifying law degree. This means that, if you successfully complete the assessments and examinations in the seven foundations of legal knowledge and legal skills training, you will be eligible for exemption from the academic stage of training and be able to continue to the postgraduate study and practical-based training stages needed to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

In the first and second year you will study core modules which give you a thorough grounding in the primary sources of 21st-century English and Welsh law. In the final year, you combine compulsory law-themed modules with the choice of specialist modules allowing you to design a programme of study to suit your interests.
