Overview

Law affects all aspects of life and society and is the mechanism for change employed by governments across the globe. From the protection of life and liberty, through corporate law to international relations, the law is centre stage. This programme is ideal for students who are interested in becoming a practising solicitor or barrister, as well as those seeking more wide-ranging careers in both the public and private sectors.

Throughout the programme, students have lots of opportunities for developing vital skills such as legal research, negotiation and mooting. Mooting (presenting a legal argument) in particular brings law alive and enables students to research a case and construct an argument to defeat an opponent.

These skills are invaluable as teaching techniques to help develop successful law graduates. The emphasis on skills-based learning is a core component of the programme and forms a key element in the assessment pattern. Students are assessed through traditional examination methods to a minimal extent and give equal and appropriate emphasis to skills-based assessments.

Students intending to qualify as solicitors or barristers have to complete an academic stage of training before going on to a vocational stage. All law degrees recognised by the Law Society and the Bar Council (known as Qualifying Law Degrees) involve the study of seven key subjects – the ‘Foundations of Legal Knowledge’.

The LLB is a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board through the Joint Academic Stage Board.

Career opportunities

Graduates may choose to go on to the vocational stage of training which is required before beginning to practice law either as a solicitor or a barrister. Others enter a wide range of careers in the private and public sectors.
