Course summary

Course overview

Build strong transferable skills and prepare for a career as a solicitor, barrister, or other profession with the Newcastle Law School LLB.

You'll study in a Law School that is globally engaged, yet rooted in its local community. This helps build knowledge and understanding, as well as empathy and cross-cultural awareness.

You can convert our standard three-year Law LLB Honours degree to a four-year LLB Honours degree with either a placement or international exchange year. The degree focuses on building the foundations of legal knowledge, as well as analysis and skills essential for a successful future career.

Studying the Newcastle LLB you'll learn about the law and develop practical legal skills such as:

  • case analysis
  • legal drafting and writing
  • legal research
  • client negotiation
  • client interviewing
  • mediation

You'll also:

  • gain direct experience in the community or in industry through our pro bono schemes and work placement opportunities
  • have the opportunity to broaden your cultural and legal frame of reference by applying to study at one of our prestigious international law faculties across Asia, Europe, Oceania and North America.

Study abroad

Experience life in another country by choosing to study abroad as part of your degree. You’ll be encouraged to embrace fun and challenging experiences, make connections with new communities and graduate as a globally aware professional, ready for your future.

You can choose to spend up to a year studying at a partner institution overseas.

The year abroad allows you to explore European or International Legal Studies programmes and will extend the duration of your degree by a year.

Work placement

Get career ready with a work placement and leave as a confident professional in your field. You can apply to spend 9 to 12 months working in any organisation in the world, and receive University support from our dedicated team to secure your dream placement. Work placements take place between stages 2 and 3.

You'll gain first-hand experience of working in the sector, putting your learning into practice and developing your professional expertise.

If you choose to take a work placement, it will extend your degree by a year. A work placement is not available if you're spending a year studying abroad. Placements are subject to availability.
