    If you are looking to pursue a career in the legal or wider commercial sector, but require greater flexibility in study patterns and wish to study 100% online, then this is the degree for you. A Qualifying Law Degree, the course has a practical focus, with employability integrated into the course.

    There is a high level of interaction and you will receive peer and one-to-one professional tutor review. Over 90% of our tutors are qualified solicitors and barristers, just one of the reasons why our teaching has been awarded a gold ranking in the Government led Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

    The course will deliver an insight into critical legal topics and develop knowledge and understanding of key concepts in a practical environment. You will develop analysis, research, problem-solving and communication skills.

    There are four study options available: 3, 4, 4.5 or 6 year programmes, allowing you to study full-time or part-time to suit your commitments and career plans. All programmes start in September with the exception of the 4.5 year programme, which has a January start date.

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

    This degree will complete the academic stage of training for those wishing to qualify as a solicitor or barrister and provides the foundation for Masters degrees, or you can move into employment within the wider legal sector and other commercial/business fields. The University of Law has a track record of success with 91% of our full-time LLB students graduating in 2016 securing employment or further study within six months of successfully completing their course.


  • Course Content

    You will study 11 units per module via e-learning and do self-study using online resources. Throughout each unit, you will be able to check your knowledge, understanding and progress by attempting a number of tasks upon which you will get immediate feedback. Tasks will also be set whereby you analyse, discuss and resolve issues and present them orally and in writing. 8 of these tasks per module and a mock assessment will be submitted and you will receive individual feedback from a professional tutor. There will also be 2 sessions per module where all students can interact online with each other and a tutor who will answer questions and provide consolidation, study skills and revision guidance.

    You will have access to all study material online including module and unit guides, student handbook and assessment information.
