Overview

Our 3-year LLB (Hons) (or 4 years with an optional sandwich year either doing a placement or study abroad) is designed for those looking for a stimulating and engaging law degree. It provides a thorough grounding in legal principles, including the study of the 7 foundations of legal knowledge which are required to make this a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), the first stage of legal education for those intending to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister. These are Constitutional and Administrative Law, Law of Contract, Crime, Equity and Trusts, EU, Land and Tort. In addition specialist options may be studied.

A law degree is valuable, whether you want to become a lawyer or to choose a different career path. Our LLB graduates have secured successful careers in sectors including finance, business and management, as well as in law.

Study abroad or work placement opportunities on this course also offer professional experience and industry contacts, further enhancing your career prospects.

In addition from 2016/17 it is possible to study an LLB (Hons) with business pathway. This means that you can add to your knowledge of the law with a research-led understanding of business and management.

Should you decide that you want to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister it is possible to transfer at the end of year 2 to the MLaw course, subject to achievement of an average of 50%.
