LLB Law with Business

Our LLB (Hons) Law with Business is a three year full-time degree. It will give you a wide understanding of key legal topics and related skills, as well as developing business skills and competencies. As well as enabling you to progress to the next stage of legal training as a solicitor or barrister, it’s also a great choice if you want to move into a career outside of the legal sector as you’ll study a range of business modules that will make you employment-ready. 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).
