Course summary

Why Law? Whether you’re intending to use the LLB degree as the start of your legal career in the legal profession, or as the stepping stone for other career opportunities, make Huddersfield Law School your first choice to what could be a brilliant, dynamic and rewarding future. We believe studying should support you in gaining a wide variety of learning skills, as well as an understanding of law, an appreciation of how to apply that understanding, how to put forward an argument, the importance of attention to detail, and the ability to work in a team as well as on your own initiative. We’ll help you to build your employability skills while you study, making you stand out to potential employers. We offer an LLB degree programme that can lead to either an LLB in Law or an LLB in Business Law depending on the modules you decide to select, as well as an LLB in Law and Criminology. All degree programmes support you in exploring your options and the career path you wish to take. On the LLB Law course we also give you the opportunity to take a placement year that could see you working in a business and gaining real world experience. At the end of your degree you may decide to continue your studies and apply for our LLM in Law and Global Governance, and even go on to study at PhD level becoming an expert in an area of Law. How will you learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures and group work sessions.You’ll gain a firm understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts. You’ll be able to start focusing on the topics that interest you in your second and third years, when you can choose from a range of specialised modules. Our strong alumni networks provide wide opportunities to engage with local legal practitioners working in regionally and internationally renowned firms. Our Law School Professional Mentoring scheme is a particular success which enables our students to bridge the gap between education and working in the legal sector. You may decide to take up the opportunity to be part of our Legal Advice Clinic, where you will work closely with practising solicitors and help them with real cases (Available from Year 2 and subject to successfully completing a competency assessment). IMPORTANT NOTICE If you are thinking of becoming a solicitor please read the following statement which we received in April 2017 from the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The SRA specifies the qualification requirements for solicitors. “The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced it will be introducing the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), the earliest date for introduction is Autumn 2021. This will be a national assessment for anyone who wants to qualify as a solicitor in England and Wales. It will provide a fair and consistent assessment for all candidates regardless of whether they have taken a law degree or qualified through new routes like the solicitor apprenticeship. If you have already started your law degree, or will do so before the SQE is introduced, you will be able to finish and qualify in the same way as before or qualify under the new system. The SRA is providing information and guidance about how to qualify in the new system so keep checking its website. Please find more details on the SRA's website here - http://https//www.sra.org.uk/sra/policy/sqe/
