Course content

This two-year programme is an innovative and challenging alternative to the one-year Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies. The programme is popular with both international and UK students.

Compared to the Graduate Diploma in Legal Studies, the LLB for Graduates programme provides:

  • Opportunities for deeper study of a broader range of legal subjects;
  • A chance to examine the philosophical side of law;
  • More time to acquire skills in legal reasoning and research;
  • An Honours degree qualification.
