Our qualifying law degree, Law with Business LLB(Hons), provides a detailed understanding of the legal framework that businesses operate within, preparing you for careers in the legal profession and many business environments.
Taken over three years, or four years with an optional salaried placement, core learning provides practical skills in presentation, negotiation, oration, mooting and advocacy and develops an understanding of the English legal system.
As you progress, option modules provide opportunities to tailor your learning. Learning is delivered through a stimulating mix of seminars, guest lectures, skills sessions and workshops. Extracurricular activities, such as industry-sponsored mooting and client interviewing competitions and pro bono work, allow you to further develop practical skills in problem-solving, critical analysis and communication.
This LLB degree is currently recognised by the Solicitors Regulation (SRA) Authority and the Bar Standards Board. It is a qualifying law degree, which means that Law LLB(Hons) graduates will have completed the academic stage of training for entry into the legal profession.
