    Our undergraduate degrees deliver the highest standards in teaching and support, offering a great all-round experience.

    A law degree is an excellent starting point for a whole range of careers. The legal industry offers a huge amount of diversity; from solicitor and barrister to judge or paralegal. Outside of the legal industry, a law degree can lead to careers in journalism, politics, HR, finance and many more.

    Our law degrees give you a practical learning experience, focused on developing transferable skills sought by employers today. Whether you’re considering a career in law or the wider commercial world, our LLB is a great place to start your journey.  Our law degree is a qualifying law degree and, depending upon option choice, will make you as ready as you can be for the new SQE1 exam (Solicitors Qualification Exam 1 – the first stage in the new route to qualifying as a solicitor currently due to be introduced in 2020).

    Locations London Bloomsbury
    UCAS Code M100

    Our LLB (Hons) Law two-year Accelerated is designed to get you to the next stage of your professional training as a lawyer or start your career as quickly as possible, without compromising on quality.

    Law with Foundation (4 years)

    Locations Birmingham, Leeds, London Bloomsbury
    UCAS Code M111

    Examinations – two hours, ten multiple choice questions and a choice of two from six long form questions.

    Coursework – essay, project report or portfolio.

    Oral presentation.

    The range of assessment methods reflects the practical nature of the programme and aligns the assessment with the learning outcomes of the programme. A mock assessment is included.
