About City

Undergraduate courses at City Law School


With around 400 students enrolling on our LLB (Hons) each year, our degree provides you with a grounding in law whilst at the same time allowing you develop your own areas of special interest.

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 is recognised by the Law Society of England and Wales/Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council/Bar Standards Board as satisfying the initial or academic stage of legal training. This means that once you complete your degree you can go on to either the Legal Practice Course (LPC) if you want to become a solicitor and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) if you want to embark on a career at the Bar.
