Course summary

You may have heard that legal education is changing. Our LLB course has been redesigned to meet those changes and will provide you with an excellent grounding as you take your first steps towards a legal career. The LLB course at the University of Northampton covers the seven foundations of legal knowledge required to meet the core academic requirements required by the Bar Standard Board for entry onto the Bar Training Course. For students who aspire to become solicitors, our LLB course has been designed to help you prepare for the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) as alongside the traditional foundations of legal knowledge there are additional optional modules covering SQE topics such as civil litigation, property law and practice, business law and criminal litigation. A law degree is not just for those who wish to pursue a legal career; it equips you with a great many skills which are desired by the graduate jobs market. We know that not all our students will wish to enter the legal profession and we have designed our course programme to offer flexibility so that you can choose options which match your interests and will help you to achieve your goals.We offer a wide range of additional voluntary activities, such as court visits, mooting, client interviewing and negotiating as part of the Law LLB. There is also the opportunity for you to join the Student Law Society, which organises social and professional activities that help to prepare you for a legal career. You will also be encouraged to get involved with our Pro Bono Advice Clinic that will allow you to put your learning to practice in real-life scenarios and make a positive difference within the local community. Our Law division also has links with local organisations such as the Northamptonshire Rights and Equality Council and Citizens Advice, that you can benefit from and explore as work experience opportunities.**By studying at the University of Northampton, you can be sure that:**- You will experience student life at the University’s £330 million Waterside Campus.
