The Course

Whether you want to work within the legal profession or you just have a real interest for the subject, studying law with us will challenge the way you think while opening the door to incredible career opportunities. 

The LLB Law (three year) degree covers the key aspects of legal theory and practice theory. You will study all areas of English Law and how this is influenced by and impacts ethical, social, political, environmental and economic values. The skills and knowledge you’ll gain will be transferable to everyday life, enabling you to experience and see the world from different viewpoints.

Teaching and Learning

Throughout your studies you’ll be taught via three methods: lectures, workshops and seminars. The exact format will depend on the modules studied, but you can expect a variety of all three.

Assessments come in a mix of formats, also depending on your chosen options. These include essays, portfolios, exams, reports, group presentation and case studies.

Assessments play a big part in your degree – they are key indicators in measuring your own success, as well as showing your progress to your tutors. If your grades are not as expected, we’ll offer the correct support to ensure improvement.

We constantly monitor assessment results and feedback to make sure our teaching is effective. We adapt our teaching and learning methods to suit our students, offering you a high quality and stimulating educational experience.

FEATURED MODULES

Legal Internship

During your final year, we run an optional Legal Internship module. This is the perfect opportunity to develop an understanding of real life, legal practice in the workplace, as well as the skills and experience needed to undertake legal work in today’s leading organisations.

Civil Litigation and Client Care

Civil Litigation develops an understanding of the following key aspects: the main underlying features that enable an act of litigation; pre-action steps before issuing a claim; initial stages of proceedings and termination of a claim prior to trial; the track allocation system; the key steps made in the progress of a claim to trial; offers of settlement and interim payments; remedies; the trial procedure; orders and judgments; enforcement of orders and judgments; appeals; costs.

This module will also expose students to Client Care and the aspects of: negotiation; legal writing; professional conduct issues; and client care within a legal practice.

Accreditations and Employability

All our courses are Qualifying Law Degrees (QLD), meaning those who wish to qualify as a Solicitor or Barrister of England and Wales can skip the academic stage of training.

You can go on to unlock a traditional legal career as a solicitor, barrister, chartered legal executive or paralegal. But many of our students follow exciting careers outside of law. You can look forward to working in areas such as education, journalism and public relations.

Once graduated, you will be eligible for CILEx Graduate Member status if you have taken our CILEx-approved modules in your final year. This saves you a year of further study and opens up additional career opportunities such as a trainee CILEx lawyer or paralegal.
