Our accelerated degree condenses three years of study into two years. This course is ideal if you want a quick pathway to a career in law, and to potentially save money along the way.
Our Law LLB degree covers the key aspects of legal theory and practice. 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.
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.

Qualifying Law Degree
Students will have to complete the following modules to graduate with a Qualifying Law Degree. This will enable you to enter the legal profession as a barrister or solicitor of England and Wales, as you will satisfy the academic stage of training.

|LSBM319||6||Equity and Trusts|
|LSBM213||5||Principles of Land Law|
|LSBM211||5||European Union Law|
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.
Employment Law and Practice
Employment Law and Practice develops an understanding of a number of key aspects, including: the law and procedure of unfair dismissal; the law and procedure on a transfer of a business or part of a business from one organisation to another; how employees are protected under the Equality Act 2010 and the law and procedure of filing an employment claim in the employment tribunal or civil courts.
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.
