Overview

Law provides the framework for modern society, impacting on all our lives. Studying for an LLB is an intellectually demanding and thought-provoking experience. This programme will help you develop an enquiring and critical attitude to law, learn to think logically and communicate clearly. The skills you will acquire throughout the degree are transferable and as a result you will enjoy excellent employment prospects in both law and non-law careers.

Birmingham Law School is the most established law school in one of the largest legal communities in the country. For almost 100 years we have made a major contribution to teaching and scholarship, and you’ll learn from academics who are leaders in their fields and the authors of many key works used by practitioners today.

The University of Birmingham is ranked in the Top 100 in the QS World University Rankings 2018 for Law.
