Like the rest of the University, Buckingham Law School prides itself on two key features, Student Satisfaction and Employability. The headline above from “Lawyer 2B” highlights our Guardian League Table position on Employability.

Two other elements underpin this success:

  • Our intensive degrees, completing a 3 year qualifying law degree in 2 years and an LLM in a further 9 months; this certainly impresses future employers; and
  • Our highly qualified and experienced academic staff, over 25 in number, all of who teach and give personal guidance to our 400 or so students.

Indeed this could all be expressed in a formula:

Time = Intensity
Staff = Attention
Intensity + Attention = Employability

And on the subject of Employability, despite the School being under 40 years old, our alumni have already occupied a remarkable range of posts from local solicitors, barristers and business owner / managers to Judges, Attorneys-General, Ministers of Justice and of Human Rights and even a Head of a Civil Service around the world.

Course outline

The unique structure of Buckingham’s LLB degree allows our students to become confident, competent lawyers, able to practise almost anywhere in the world after just two years (eight or nine terms) of study.

With an English ‘qualifying law degree’ from Buckingham you will be recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (formerly the Law Society) and the Bar Standards Board as qualified to be exempt from the academic stage of training for entry into the legal profession. Every LLB programme at Buckingham (whether single honours or combined honours) provides our graduates with this qualification.

We can usually accommodate the additional requirements needed to practise in some countries and if you are an overseas student we are happy to discuss exactly what subjects you must take in order to qualify for your jurisdiction.

During your study for the Buckingham LLB you will become proficient in written and oral presentation, perfect your research techniques and learn to solve problems in a logical and structured way.

Students at Buckingham who gain a second class honours degree or higher are guaranteed a place on our LLM programme in International and Commercial Law. This opportunity greatly enhances specialist knowledge and enables our students to acquire two degrees in only three years.
