The LLB (Graduate Entry) programme is a two year full-time programme specifically designed to provide a legal education to graduates in disciplines other than law. Graduates from any discipline other than law may apply and no prior legal knowledge is necessary. Entry is competitive and the minimum entry requirement is a 2nd class honours grade 2 undergraduate degree.
The programme is ideally suited to graduates who wish to supplement their primary studies with a legal education or to graduates who are seeking a career change. The programme is also available to graduates who have studied law in a country where the legal system is not a common law system, i.e. the dominant system in countries including Ireland, England and Wales, Australia, and the United States of America.
All law subjects required by the Irish professional bodies, the Law Society and the Kings Inns, are covered in full over the course of this programme.
On successful completion of the programme, candidates are awarded an LLB degree. It may be possible to complete the Graduate Entry LLB in one year if you have covered a number of law modules in your undergraduate degree. Decisions are based on a case by case basis by the Course Director.
