Join an inclusive law school at the heart of legal London.
Undergraduate Academic Programmes
This course is extensive, rigorous and taught by experts.
Despite being the largest LLB programme in the UK, we offer an intimate, friendly, and stimulating environment for you to study in. We encourage our students to take part in all areas of the law outside of everyday teaching. We run annual mooting competitions and offer you opportunities to volunteer to take part in pro bono work.
Our LLB (Hons) is academically rigorous and taught by experts in their fields. It will provide you with a sound grounding in law whilst at the same time allowing you develop your own areas of special interest through a wide ranging choice of modules and pathways in:
- LLB Law with Commercial Law
- LLB Law with International Law
- LLB Law with Human Rights
- LLB Law with Professional Practice
Our focus is to make you highly employable and equipped with transferrable skills to pursue a successful career in or outside the legal profession.
Supporting your career choice
Our relationship with leading academics give students access to the best legal minds available today.
We involve practitioners directly in the delivery and development of our courses and many of our academic staff remain active in the profession, ensuring that you leave us with the skills and knowledge relevant to today’s legal world.
By completing the LLB (Hons) with us you acquire analytical, communications and other transferrable skills that allow to confidently apply for jobs in law and legal services, but also in diverse areas like banking and finance, government, politics, charity and NGOs, or academia.
You may also decide to continue your studies and become a fully-qualified solicitor or barrister.
Routes after the LLB
Our LLB (Hons) is recognised by the Law Society of England and Wales, the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council/Bar Standards Board as satisfying the initial academic stage of legal training.
This means that once you complete your degree you can directly go on to either the Legal Practice Course (LPC) if you want to become a solicitor and the Bar Vocational Studies (BVS) if you want to embark on a career at the Bar.
