Overview

This course has been designed for graduates (usually in a subject other than Law) who want to gain a Qualifying Law Degree. The degree is completed in just two years and is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board, enabling you to progress on to further training to become a solicitor or barrister in England or Wales.

This degree has been designed with international students in mind, as you will be able to gain a Qualifying LLB Law Degree in less time than if you studied at home. It can also help you to obtain a professional qualification in English Law, which has formed the basis of legal systems around the world.

If you want to become a lawyer in another country please consult the appropriate country’s legal body to confirm requirements. In a few countries, such as Canada, successful completion of the LLB (Hons) Law Senior Status can provide some exemptions from qualifying exams.
