An upper second honours degree in a non-law subject or equivalent.
Months of entry
LLB Law (graduate programme) provides you with the opportunity to learn about the law, both in the traditional sense of 'thinking like a lawyer' and in the broader sense of law as a social institution.
It is a 'Qualifying Law Degree'. This status means that graduation from the programme exempts you from the Common Professional Examination: the initial stage of professional qualification as a solicitor or barrister for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This shortens your professional training, should you wish to practise in England and Wales, by one year.
This programme is for people who already hold a first degree. The pace of the course takes this previous academic experience into consideration.
Unlike the postgraduate LLM Law programme, which focuses more on the development of postgraduate research skills, LLB Law (graduate programme) follows undergraduate level structures of teaching and learning.
