Degree Overview

The LLB (Hons) degree is an opportunity for you to gain a rigorous academic legal education and a thorough grounding in legal, academic and clinical skills needed for you to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister, as well as equipping you for employment in other areas if you choose not to go on to a professional qualification in law.

Modules of this programme are taught by a mix of academic experts and practitioner lawyers, who put real world clinical legal experience at the heart of the programme.
This LLB programme is flexible in structure and has core first and second years including all seven law foundation subjects. Therefore, studying this programme will give you the ability to switch to a more specialist LLB in the final year and tailor your study to a particular aspect of law by choosing options relating to criminal law, commercial law or social justice or choosing a range of options. By completing the foundation subjects early, this will also put you in a good position to obtain law work experience and placement opportunities and enhance your employability. It also allows you to take your time to decide on which aspect of law is right for you.
