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.

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.
