LLB Law (Accelerated)

Our Accelerated LLB is a Qualifying Law Degree that covers all the same material as our LLB undergraduate law degree, but in two years rather than three. It is designed for those who are able to dedicate extra time to your studies on a weekly basis. Still packed with great transferrable skills training, you can feel confident that you’ll graduate ready to take on the challenges of any career path you might wish to follow. If you’re eager to qualify as a solicitor or barrister then this course will help you jump-start your legal career. You can complete your Qualifying Law Degree in just two years with our Accelerated LLB, allowing you to move on to postgraduate study sooner. Studying our degree will also mean you are prepared in part for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1) or to progress onto our Bar Practice Course (if you wish to qualify as a barrister).
