Do you already have a degree in a non-law subject? If so, this programme provides an opportunity to gain a full law degree in two years. The programme is popular with both international and UK students.
During your two years at Birmingham you will study the foundation subjects of common law, criminal law, public law, European law and property law.
Alongside the seven foundation subjects of law you will be able to study up to three optional specialist modules. Teaching on the course is delivered through a mixture of lectures and tutorials with 10 students in each tutorial group, allowing you to receive personalised attention from academic staff. You share lectures with the students on the other LLB programmes but your core tutorial groups are exclusively for students on the LLB for Graduates course.
About the Birmingham Law School
Birmingham Law School has a long tradition of producing cutting-edge research that has real-world impact and informs the challenging and exciting learning environment our students experience. As a community of world-leading scholars, teachers and students, Birmingham Law School continues to make an important contribution to our understanding, teaching, and practice of law. In 2016 it was named as one of the world’s Top 100 law schools in the QS World Rankings. We provide an expansive range of programmes, for both undergraduate and postgraduate studies and employ a range of approaches in our teaching and our research, from the theoretical and doctrinal to the empirical and applied. Our research is recognised on a global stage, and our academics are frequent participants in legal debates and contribute to the policy-making process. We provide students with more than just a degree, and enable them to develop the skills required to enhance their employability. Our Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research (CEPLER) presents our students with opportunities to increase their knowledge of law in action through Pro Bono and Mooting as well as the 50+ legal specific career events CEPLER organises annually. CEPLERs work is one of the many things that have led to Birmingham being recognised as the University of the Year for Graduate Employability in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016.
