We will look at your application based principally, but not exclusively, on academic ability. We will also evaluate it using the following admissions criteria:

  • Good academic profile and achievement – demonstrated by actual or predicted grades.
  • Academic references
  • Any extenuating circumstances you want taken into consideration 
  • Your personal statement

The personal statement is your opportunity to show us your own individual skills and qualities and is a vital part of your application. Key areas to include in a personal statement are shown in this mind map.

Our LLB is aimed at students who want to be lawyers, therefore you should make sure your personal statement:

  • Is well argued with supporting evidence where possible
  • Demonstrates intellectual rigour and attention to detail – make sure your grammar, spelling and punctuation is correct
  • Shows your motivation for becoming a lawyer – did any recent events make you want to be a lawyer? Have you watched any cases at your local court?
  • Gives evidence of any legal or non-legal work experience – show the skills and any business awareness you’ve learned
  • Highlight activities you do outside of school, college or work – what skills have you developed by being part of a school club, taking part in a sports team or contributing to a project at work.
  • Include any special circumstances which you feel might apply to you – explain how such life experiences have influenced you and your decision to be a lawyer
