The Graduate LLB is a two-year accelerated law degree for students who have a first degree in another discipline and want to pursue a career in law.

The programme covers all the foundation subjects required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board to pass the Academic Stage of training that forms part of the professional qualification as a lawyer in England & Wales. Study will also include a number of law elective subjects.

The degree is vocation-facing, and most graduates pursue further training and a career in law after graduation, often in another jurisdiction (their home country). The concentrated nature of study is only appropriate to those who have already acquired basic study skills through a previous (usually non-law) degree programme.

The Graduate LLB offers opportunities for you to enhance your employability skills. As well as the wide range of curriculum based learning activities, you will have the chance to take part in mooting and pro bono work, and benefit from a range of career activities throughout the year.

Programme structure

The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.

You will take modules adding up to 120 credits each year. In your second year you may take up to 45 credits in another discipline if you wish, subject to prior approval.

Learning and teaching

We place emphasis on the development of legal skills and elements of legal research, problem analysis, teamwork, legal writing and reasoning. 

You will usually have between 12-16 hours of lectures, workshops or seminars each week and be expected to spend around 30 hours in private study. You’ll also be encouraged to discuss aspects of modules with lecturers during fixed consultation times.

We’re actively engaged in introducing new methods of learning and teaching, including increasing use of interactive computer-based approaches through our virtual learning environment where you can access study information and take part in discussion forums. 

Assessment

You will be assessed in a variety of ways, for example:

  • essay or assignment
  • examination with open notes or other materials
  • examination with unannotated statute books
  • dissertation
  • oral presentations

Assessment methods will vary by module. All students receive written feedback on their coursework assignments and tutors are available to discuss additional feedback on assignments and exams with students as requested.

Careers

We have an excellent track record of graduate employment. Many firms target the University when recruiting new graduates and our annual Law Fair provides one of several opportunities to meet prospective employers.

We have an excellent relationship with members of the legal profession who are in regular contact with students through activities such as workshops, skills sessions, mooting, networking, internships, shadowing and mentoring.

Students also benefit from our strong links with alumni all over the world. Many of our alumni are in senior positions and include:

  • His Hon Judge Phillip Waller CBE
  • Steve Edge, Partner – Slaughter and May
  • Fiona Shackleton, Partner – Payne Hicks Beach
  • Dato Ambiga Sreenevasan – President of the Malaysian Bar Council
  • Sarah Turvill – Chairman of Willis International Ltd

Many graduates go on to further study in the law and then enter a training contract with a firm of solicitors or a pupillage in a barrister’s chambers. A law degree also provides a range of skills which are sought by other sectors such as business, finance and administration.
