LLB Law with Study in Continental Europe

2024 entry

Course summary

Law is a global profession. An understanding of more than one legal system, language and culture can open up a world of opportunity.

This four-year degree course is an expansion of our LLB Law, with the addition of a year abroad at one of our partner universities. Currently, we partner with institutions in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain.* To find out more about studying abroad, visit Centre for Study Abroad.

A broader cultural experience, living in another country and the ability to articulate the benefits of different legal systems will see you graduate with a valuable skill set ideally tailored to the globalised workplace and sought after by leading employers.

You can apply to transfer to our Study Abroad degree from the LLB at the end of your first year. Selection is on the basis of first-year results and language ability if you plan to study in a country where you will not be taught in English (various options to study in English are also available).

Second-year units provide the opportunity to deepen your legal knowledge and focus on legal themes that interest you most. Typically, you will spend your third year abroad studying the law of the country you are visiting.

An exciting range of optional units will help you specialise further in your final year at Bristol. Inspired by their year abroad, many students choose units suited to global law firms and international organisations, such as business and finance, environmental, human rights or technology law - subjects that can open doors to top-flight careers across the world. Your final-year dissertation provides an opportunity to engage critically with your chosen topic.

For information about the routes to qualification for solicitors and barristers, visit the Solicitors Regulation Authority or the Bar Standards Board.

*Our international partnerships are reviewed annually. Please check before applying.
