LLB Law (UCAS Code M100)

The undergraduate LLB (Bachelor of Laws) degree takes three years. The curriculum incorporates the ‘core’ compulsory subjects required by the legal profession and aims to develop the ‘benchmark’ graduate skills identified by the Quality Assurance Agency. Students are required to take mandatory units, selected to provide an understanding of the fundamental principles of English law and the philosophies behind them. In addition, they can choose from a rich variety of optional units in their second and third year.

The Law School continually reviews its curricula. There are currently no planned changes, but any future changes will be published here in due course. 

At the end of their first year of study, students admitted to study LLB Law may apply to transfer to the LLB Law with Study in Continental Europe or LLB Law with Study Abroad degree.
