Course summary

The LLB (Hons) accelerated course is one of a few two-year degree programmes offered in the UK. It has the advantage of being a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), Bar Standards Board (BSB) and Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX). The 2-year accelerated course is a popular choice by students wishing to change career and also students from overseas jurisdictions, both groups wishing to complete the UK academic stage of training more quickly than a traditional 3 or 4 year law course. This has many advantages and the hallmark of this course is the intensive accelerated learning stages which take place during the summer terms, meaning students complete their studies in a shorter period of time. During the first two teaching blocks of Level 4, students follow the same schedule of study as all students on the first year of any of our undergraduate law courses. Students then study a foundation of legal knowledge subject (e.g. Criminal Law or Land Law) and the Legal Principles module during an intensive accelerated learning stage which incorporates a mixture of 2 weeks of face to face learning supplemented by some distance learning activities and discussions so as to accelerate your progression throughout the third teaching block during the summer. The hallmark of the award is the accelerated learning periods which also provide students with the opportunity to network with employers and develop key graduate employability skills. Following on from the first year of study students move on to complete their study of the foundations of legal knowledge at which point students can study a number of specialist subjects such as Family Law, Criminology, Intellectual Property Law, Information Technology Law, Environmental Law, Company and Commercial Law. The course is completed with a further period of accelerated learning in which student’s research for a dissertation and take the module Human Rights as well as completing a work experience and employability module to enhance graduate skills. There is the opportunity to transfer to our 3 year LLB (Hons) course as well as to our BA (Hons) Legal Studies (a non-qualifying law degree) if circumstances require this, for example, if for any reason a student does not successfully complete the required foundations of legal knowledge. Upon graduation, you’ll be able to continue your studies via our highly regarded Legal Practice Course, or complete one of our specialised postgraduate awards. LLB(Hons) Law opens the door to a number of exciting graduate opportunities within legal practice and legal services, as well as graduate opportunities in other relevant areas, such as: management training schemes, local government, human resource management, healthcare management and commercial regulation. The Foundation Year is part of our LLB suite of courses and is designed to encourage non-standard entrants to access the study of law and entry to the legal professions.
