Flexible options

Our Law programmes can be studied in a number of different ways, full or part-time and include 9 different LL.B. law degrees to choose from.

Our single honours Law LL.B is most often the route taken by those who want to become a solicitor or barrister. However all of our LL.B. degrees are fully qualifying Law degrees.  You can choose any of these if you wish to become a lawyer as they all provide the qualifying route for you to be able to progress to the Legal Practical Course (LPC) or Barrister Professional Training Course (BPTC) post-graduation.

Should you want to add something more to the LL.B. or if you are interested in a different career, then by combining law with another discipline such as Business or Criminology or one of the other 6 combinations available, you can graduate with a full law degree as well as giving yourself greater opportunities in Business, Marketing, Paralegal, Banking, Criminology, Social Work, Policing and other areas.
