Course summary

Study LLB Law and develop your legal knowledge and skills in a highly practical way, with plenty of opportunities to build real-life legal experience. Study with us and enjoy our friendly, non-elitist and non-hierarchical approach.Benefit from our commitment to the development of your professional and practical skills through problem-based learning projects, commercial awareness training and work-experience. In 2019, the School of Law achieved a 91% overall satisfaction rating in the National Student Survey.You will have the opportunity to take part in client interviewing, negotiation and mooting competitions, with work experience placements offered as prizes. Reading Law School also hosts one of the largest pro bono programmes in the UK, giving you the opportunity to work, on a voluntary basis, with local charities and other organisations where you will give legal advice and support to real people with real problems.We host one of the largest pro bono programmes in the country, working with local charities and organisations, including Age Concern, Anti-Slavery International, Berkshire Witness Service, Reading Young Offenders Team, Streetlaw and Thames Valley Police.The first and second years provide the foundation of your legal knowledge and are determined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Council. You can complement your legal study with modules from outside of law – for example, languages, politics, and business courses such as entrepreneurship. In your final year you can focus on your interests and select from a wide range of modules. Popular options are Company Law, Intellectual Property, Revenue Law, Family Law and Criminology.We now offer a single year abroad programme, LLB with International Legal Studies. The degree programme would be available to students by internal transfer only. Thus, the programme is only open to students who are on the three year LLB, allowing them to spend an additional year abroad, within or outside Europe, subject to the availability of placements with our partners. This provides students with the opportunity to study law in an entirely different context to the UK, and can be valuable both for a deeper understanding of law and for those who may wish to work abroad in the future. We expect this list to be expanded to include a range of other institutions from the American, Asian, and Australian continents.On this course you can develop your legal knowledge and skills in English law, while also experiencing life in a different culture and within a different legal system. The first two years of this degree are identical to the three year LLB Law degree. Subject to availability, you can then spend your third year at an international partner university. In some of these institutions, the teaching is delivered in English, so no prior language skills are required in such cases.**Careers**Our law graduates are in high demand with employers. Successful completion of your Law degree provides you with the first qualification for entry into the legal profession, and it also equips you with strong analytical, critical and persuasive skills. These are crucial skills, whether in the legal profession, local or national government, international organisations, the voluntary sector or business.We place great importance on employability and careers. We have a dedicated careers adviser and a calendar full of career-orientated events. As well as providing help with CV writing, placement applications and interview techniques, we also host commercial awareness workshops. Our careers talks cover a range of employment options available to law graduates, including the Crown Prosecution Service, accountancy and management training.
