Law LLB (Hons)

This programme is accredited as a Qualifying Law Degree in England and Wales by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board and gives exemption from the academic stage of qualification for both branches of the legal profession. Therefore it is ideal for those intending to qualify as a solicitor or barrister.

The law team has strong links with the local legal profession and visiting law firms and barristers will provide you with careers advice. We offer a wide range of additional voluntary activities, such as mooting, client interviewing and negotiating. There is also the Student Law Society, which organises social and professional activities.

You will benefit from court and prison visits, as well as a student mentoring scheme with Shoosmiths solicitors.
