Course Details

LLB (Hons) Law with Government and Politics Online

Our LLB Law with Government and Politics Online is a great choice if you are looking to pursue a career in the legal, local or national government and wider commercial sector. Law and politics go closely hand-in-hand, so developing a firm grasp of legal skills can be massively beneficial if you’re interested in a career in politics. Conversely, a career in the legal sector can only be supported by a stronger understanding of the political powers that govern how the law works. If you want to be a lawyer and have an interest in government and politics, or if you’re an aspiring politician with an interest in the law, then this course is an ideal choice.

You get much greater flexibility in study patterns as you will be studying 100% online, and with three study options available you can study full-time or part-time to suit your commitments and career plans.

Not only will you study the key legal topics and related skills required for the modern law student, but the study of Government and Politics will help make you employment ready and open up a wider array of career options.
