Course content

This course is for graduates who have a proven academic track record who wish to gain a qualification in law either for legal professional purposes or to advance their careers in law-related fields.

If you intend to practise in law in the UK, the GE LLB Programme offers you the possibility of obtaining exemption from the academic stage of training over two years instead of the one year Graduate Diploma in Law. Not only does this give you the chance to take electives in legal subjects, but also gives you the chance to acquire work experience in the summer vacation.

The course attracts many international students, particularly Canadians who, once they graduate, are well on the way to satisfying the Canadian NCA requirements.


The Graduate Entry LLB enables you to:

- Gain skills and knowledge in the core legal subjects

- Achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three

- Learning about specialist areas of law

- Participate in mooting competitions (optional) to further strengthen your legal and debating skills

- Progress, on completion of the degree, to one of the two professional courses all UK lawyers are required to take: the Solicitors� Practice Programme (SPP) for solicitors and the Bar Vocational Studies (BVS) for barristers
