LLB in Legal Practice (Online)

The LLB in Legal Practice is a law degree with a difference. It enables you to combine essential legal knowledge with practical legal skills while gaining a valuable law degree.

Course Overview

Developed jointly by City Law School and CILEx Law School, the degree is taught via supported distance learning, so you can study from anywhere. The legal practice electives fulfil all the academic study required to become a graduate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (if a pass is achieved at the requisite level), which is what makes this programme so distinctive.

In common with other law degrees, the LLB in Legal Practice will also prepare you for further training if you want to become a solicitor or barrister. On graduating you will be able to apply legal theory to practical law with confidence, making you more employable than graduates who have studied a traditional law degree.
