LLB Law

Course outline


Our LLB Law with Management degree has proved very popular with students wanting to study law with other subjects, including accounting and economics.  For those wanting to spend more time studying law, we plan to offer an LLB Law degree in 2013. This programme will include new modules including Jurisprudence, Commercial Law and Taxation. The opportunity to undertake an extended research project (dissertation) will also be provided. As with our existing LLB Law with Management programme, the new LLB will be a qualifying law degree and will focus on law and legal practice in a commercial context.  The opportunity to spend the third year on placement will also be available.

Learning, teaching & assessment


You will experience a range of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, group-working, guest lectures, visits to law courts, and case studies. Traditional teaching is supported by a virtual learning environment that is used to host a range of electronic supporting materials.


Mooting and presentations are used to develop advocacy skills and problem solving exercises are used extensively to help apply legal knowledge to real life situations.


Assessment is provided by a mix of coursework and examination.


Placement year


Our integrated placement year allows you to undertake a professional paid placement, where you gain valuable practical experience. We have links to over 1000 different organisations and advertise around 3000 posts each year.


The placement year also increases your commercial awareness and gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge and skills in practice.



Professional accreditation


This is a qualifying law degree. It is recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board as satisfying the academic stage of legal training for solicitors or barristers. As an Aston LLB graduate you can therefore proceed directly to the Legal Practice Course or Bar Vocational Course.


Graduates can also gain exemptions from the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and the Chartered Insurance Institute.
