Law LLB at University of Law

The Law degree at the University of Law, known as an LLB or Bachelor of Laws, is equivalent to a BA or BSc. If your career aspiration is to be a solicitor or barrister in the UK, this degree is perfect for you as it will mean you are prepared in part for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE1) or to progress onto our Bar Practice Course (if you wish to qualify as a barrister). Additionally, if you have set your sights on a career in politics, business or journalism, the transferable skills you will learn on this degree course will give you an excellent launch pad for these ambitions and more.

With this professionally focused qualification, you can expect to learn practical skills coupled with a focus on your future employability. The LLB law course will also offer you the flexibility to specialise more and more as you progress to focus on what interests you, with opportunities to study anything from Business Law to International Law. Over 90% of the tutors at the University of Law are qualified solicitors, barristers and judges so you will learn to apply law and teaching focus will be on the most relevant and practical skills that employers are looking for.

Studying law is just the start of a wide, varied and exciting legal career. It offers more diversity than almost any other profession, whether you want to be a company secretary, a solicitor, a paralegal or a high court judge. It's also one of the best qualifications for going on to succeed in other careers. You can find  graduates of the University of Law working in politics, journalism, business, HR and finance and more all over the world.
