The Graduate Entry LLB (Hons) is a senior status law degree which allows non-law graduates to achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three.
On the course, you have the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in the core legal subjects as well as learning about specialist areas of law. You also have the additional option of participating in mooting competitions to further strengthen your legal and debating skills.
