It allows you to fast track your learning; fitting the modules needed to complete a qualifying law degree into just 2 years of study. When you graduate, you'll be ready to train to become a solicitor or barrister.Designed for graduates from a wide range of disciplines, our intensive accelerated LLB programme offers you the possibility of a qualifying law degree in just 2 years. You'll become proficient in all the subjects required for a qualifying law degree and have the opportunity to develop an area of interest through extended study for your dissertation. Our accelerated LLB programme will give you in-depth legal knowledge together with strong critical thinking and communication skills.

As part of your degree you can experience law in action by applying to shadow a senior member of the judiciary in the High Court or Court of Appeal. Work alongside legal professionals to advise students at the Law Clinic in housing, business and family law.

Hone your presentation skills on the Streetlaw programme and take part in a range of competitions to enhance your skills, including the Womble Bond Dickinson Team Building Challenge and regional, national and international mooting and negotiation competitions. By studying modules outside of law you can broaden your knowledge with interdisciplinary study. You can forge even stronger links within our friendly community by joining a student-run society such as the Law Society, Inns of Court Society, Mooting Society, Lawyers without Borders and the Canadian Law Society. You will have access to excellent learning facilities to support your studies. These include superb library resources including comprehensive collections in all the main subject areas such as contract law, property law, maritime law, criminal justice and public law.
