Course summary

Overview

If you're interested in law and you're curious about foreign policy and international thought, this LLB (Hons) Law with International Relations degree course will match your interests.

The course is a qualifying law degree (QLD). It fulfils the requirements of the academic stage of training as specified by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board. This means that you can progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the vocational stage of training for the bar without additional study.

As well as core legal subjects, you’ll get to choose from various optional modules to suit your own interests. These currently include Commercial Law, Employment Law and Jurisprudence.

After the course, you could continue your legal training or take up employment in areas such as finance, commerce, recruitment or the public sector. You could also continue your studies on a Master’s degree.

  • Bring what you learn to life in mock trials in our replica of a crown court, complete with dock, witness box, public gallery, jury room and interview room
  • Use your skills advising members of the public on a variety of aspects of the law, by working in one of our community settings
  • Join our student law society and take part in team competitions such as negotiation and mooting
  • Develop your understanding of global affairs and foreign political systems

Careers and opportunities

After the course, you could progress to a graduate training scheme, go straight into employment in the private, public or voluntary sector, or continue your studies.

If you chose a career in law, you can do the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) or Legal Practice Course (LPC), which are the traditional routes to becoming a barrister or solicitor.

If you take the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma module in your final year, you can work as legal executive or paralegal when you graduate and become a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer following 3 years of qualifying employment.
