Course summary

This law degree allows you to learn about the law, both in the sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and studying law as a social institution. As a law student you will gain expertise in analysis, research, logical argument and more as you develop an understanding of key topics within law and the legal sector.

In addition to areas such as contract law, international law and criminal law, you’ll examine the broader context of the law and its relationship with society. We offer a wide range of optional modules, enabling you to develop your interests in specialist legal areas such as company or employment law, human rights law, environmental law and family law. You could also explore topics in criminal justice and criminology, such as policing or youth crime.

Throughout the course, you’ll gain diverse skills that will be valuable to you as a citizen, as well as in your professional career – whether you choose to enter the legal profession or not. You also have the opportunity to spend a year studying abroad, subject to academic performance and available places.

Accreditation

All our LLB courses are currently accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Council.

Exemptions

LLB Law is a Qualifying Law Degree*. This status means that graduation from the programme exempts you from the Common Professional Examination: the initial stage of professional qualification as a solicitor or barrister for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This shortens your professional training by one year, should you wish to practise in England and Wales.

Assessment

To help you develop the variety of skills you will need in your future career, we assess modules using a range of different methods. These include seen and unseen exams, coursework, group work, presentations, poster presentations and oral participation e.g. in discussion groups.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of law there are several professional and academic pathways available to you, whether you envisage becoming a lawyer or intend to specialise in a specific area of law at postgraduate level. Our graduates have secured diverse law careers in companies such as Pinsent Masons, Eversheds, Clifford Chance, Freshfields, Irwin Mitchell and Addleshaw Goddard.

As a student in the School of Law we will provide you with a host of opportunities to help boost your career prospects; from developing skills in mooting and negotiating, hearing from prospective employers at specialist talks or career fairs or taking part in career mentoring. The support you will receive at the School of Law will help you kickstart your career, whether in law or another field.
