Overview

Whether you have a passion for Law or Business, studying Law can help to sharpen the mind, build an analytical skillset and develop problem-solving abilities.
Our LLB Law degree will focus on the ‘foundations of legal knowledge’ in years one and two and then offers you the opportunity to specialise in a specific area of Law in your final year. These specialist pathways include Business Law, Trade and Finance Law, International Law, Criminal Law and Justice, and Social Justice, as well as an option to pursue a pathway giving a broader approach to legal study.

Our learning facilities, which include a mock court room known as the Moot Room , our teaching expertise and hands-on approach aim to provide you with the confidence and knowledge to study towards your LLB. In addition, our focus on employability and our membership with the International Association of Law Schools can offer you many global opportunities to enhance your learning experience.

With over 50 years’ experience of teaching Law, Coventry University’s LLB Law degree is designed for careers in Law, but, equally suitable if you wished to pursue a career in Business or similar career paths.

From 2021, to become a Solicitor and/or Barrister in England and Wales you must either have an undergraduate degree, or equivalent experience (for example, by completing a degree level apprenticeship). Importantly, a Coventry undergraduate law degree should prepare candidates for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination Stage 1 test, as required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in order to become a Solicitor, and for the Academic pathway, as required by the Bar Standards Board in order to become a Barrister.

Career opportunities

The skills and attributes developed and acquired throughout our LLB Law (Hons) course are translatable to many other positive career destinations and the course is designed to prepare students for the global jobs market or further graduate level study. Our Employability Team, Legal Futures, are on hand to offer advice, employment opportunities, CV/personal statement checks and placement advice, as well as hosting an annual Employment Fair, dedicated to students studying Business and Law courses.

Some our graduates started their legal careers at organisations such as the Criminal Cases Review Commission or Crown Prosecution Service, while others have chosen to become specialist advisors in commercial and business law for high street, national and international firms. Examples of recent graduate employers include: Brethertons LLP, a growing Midlands firm with six offices; Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, a leading multinational law firm; and Ince and Co, a specialist international commercial firm with offices in Dubai, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Le Havre, London, Paris, Piraeus, Shanghai and Singapore.

On successful graduation of this course, you should possess a range of transferrable graduate and employability skills in research, analysis, synthesis, critical judgement, evaluation, application of knowledge, problem-solving, communication and reflective learning.
