Course Details

Dual Degree LLB in Civil and English Law

The Dual LLB is a 4 year programme delivered in partnership with IE University, Spain. The programme is built upon the pillars of both common and civil law.

IE University, like The University of Law, values the importance of innovative teaching methods and professional and personal networking. Both institutions strive to help you develop the necessary skills and knowledge that will provide an essential foundation for a successful professional career.

You will experience a truly international learning experience, combining three years of study with IE University in Madrid and Segovia, Spain, and a fourth year on an international internship or at The University of Law. Successful completion of the course means you will be awarded both a qualifying Spanish law degree and a Qualifying Law Degree in England and Wales.

Your fourth and final year with The University of Law gives you the opportunity to choose between studying the Legal Practice Course (LPC)  or Bar Practice Course (BPC), so that you can qualify as a solicitor or barrister, respectively, in England and Wales.            

If you aspire to become an international law professional who sets themselves apart from traditional law tracks, the Dual LLB will help you develop an outstanding profile when entering the legal job market.
