Overview

If you’re interested in becoming a barrister or solicitor, or pursuing a career in commerce or government, our Law LLB degree will give you the foundation you need to be successful.

You will learn the core ‘foundations of legal knowledge’ required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board in order to pass the academic stage of training and progress on to the vocational stage.

Future changes to the qualification routes for solicitors with the introduction by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of the new Solicitors Qualifying Exam (‘SQE’) mean that if you start a law degree course in the 2021/22 academic year or later, you would need to pass the SQE to qualify as a solicitor.

The degree’s focus on practical (as well as theoretical) teaching means you can develop the analytical and critical skills essential for formulating legal arguments. You’ll also have the opportunity to study a range of specialist subjects that are relevant to your own aspirations.

With a wide range of option modules – including work-based learning placements – and a diverse variety of assessment methods, such as simulated negotiation exercises and delivering presentations, you will learn through experiencing the law, not just through exams.

Career opportunities

Although many Law graduates will go on to their vocational training in order to practise law as a barrister, solicitor or legal executive, others become paralegals, work in human resources or set up their own businesses.

Almost half of graduates use their Law degree to enter careers in the private and public sector, public services, commerce and government.

A Law degree is highly valued by employers in all sectors because it equips graduates with a range of highly transferable skills, as well as a detailed and analytical knowledge of law.
