The Course


This two-year intensive degree has Qualifying Law Degree status providing exemption from the academic stage of qualification for both branches of the legal profession, making it ideal for those intending to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. This intensive LLB allows you to condense three years of study into two years, accelerating your career development. You will also benefit from court and prison visits, a dedicated Moot Room for moots and mock trials and a recently refurbished Law and Criminal Justice block. The Law team has strong links with the local legal profession and visiting law firms and barristers provide you with career advice. In addition, mentors from Shoosmiths are linked with students for an academic year. How the two-year intensiv?e LLB works: The intensive degree enables students to complete their degree in two years by extending the academic year into the normal vacation periods. In year one of their degree, a two-year LLB student will follow a similar programme as a three-year degree student, taking 120 credits (six modules) plus one module from level 5 amounting to 20 credits. At the end of term three of year one, subject to satisfactory progress, a two-year student will continue on the accelerated pathway, taking 40 credits worth of modules over the summer period. In year two of the intensive degree, a student will study modules alongside students from years two and three of the three-year degree (taking 140 credits/seven modules), but, again, will take 40 credits of additional modules in the summer vacation in order to complete their degree at the end of two years. Satisfactory progress is specifically defined in the Supplementary Regulations but in brief requires students to pass all 7 modules when presented to the June Examination Board at the end of Year 1. Students who do not meet these criteria will be transferred to the traditional LLB route. Further information can be obtained from the Admissions Tutor.


Modules include: Law of contract; legal system; introduction to public law; criminal law; law of European institutions; public law; law of tort; land law; equity and trusts; criminal law; medical law; human rights; terrorism.

Assessment Methods

Assessment methods vary from module to module; some are assessed by a combination of examination and coursework, some by coursework only.
