Course summary

Learn to use skills of analysis, reasoning and judgement to tackle topical questions with ethical, political and social dimensions, as well as the legal aspects of ordinary, everyday interaction.

Our distinctive LLB degree combines academic rigour with applied, practical and interdisciplinary perspectives, ensuring you develop an understanding of law in all its contexts.

We are the only law school in the UK to use a problem-based learning approach as the basis for our undergraduate programmes. We believe this modern, practical method will help you to develop the skills and techniques you will need to stand out as a professional. Our three learning streams allow you to choose a pathway based on your interests, while fitting closely together to form an integrated and comprehensive course.

We want you to feel a part of our vibrant community from day one. Our highly approachable, expert tutors are committed to providing you with high-quality teaching, feedback and support. Staff and students work alongside each other in lectures, seminars and extracurricular activities including The Student Law Society and projects such as the Global Day of Action. York Law School Legal Clinic and Small Business Legal Clinic provide free legal advice to people and business, helping students gain practical experiences within the friendly and supportive surroundings of our purpose-built law school.

Assessment and feedback

York Law School uses two main forms of assessment, formative and summative.

  • Formative assessment provides feedback on coursework tasks and your general contribution in PBL and Skills sessions. This does not count towards your final module grades.
  • Summative assessment consists of formal skills-based coursework tasks, examinations and formal assessment of individual contribution in PBL and Skills sessions as part of some modules. These assessments will count towards your final module grades.

Careers and skills

Our pioneering Careers and Development programme will help to ensure you are ready to pursue your chosen career path. Created through collaboration with leading local, national and international firms and key vocational providers, the programme includes professional skills workshops, personal development, mentoring schemes and link days.

We also have a dedicated full-time Employability Tutor, who can give you advice on a wide range of matters, from CV and assessment centre techniques to general career planning.

We have established a wide range of professional links and partnering arrangements. Through these you benefit from 'real world' lawyers as part of the teaching team and gain access to practical, work-based learning opportunities that can help you to prepare for your career.
