LLB in Law
The School offers a vibrant, friendly and supportive academic community where students transform an interest in law into a lifelong passion. The School offers two options for undergraduate study, the LLB Law and the LLB Law with Professional Placement (Thick-Sandwich).
We teach law as a single subject so that students may gain a solid and grounded foundation in law, resulting in confident graduates ready to meet the challenges of further study or professional life. The Brunel LLB is a qualifying law degree featuring core modules that satisfy the requirements of the Law Society and the Bar Council. Final year students take charge of their degree by tailoring their studies to the areas of law they wish to explore and gain a deeper understanding of.
Students on the LLB with Professional Placement will spend a year working in industry where they gain valuable experience that may count towards the period of professional training required by the Law Society for solicitors' training. We are one of only a few UK law schools that offer this opportunity as a part of the degree programme. Students on the four-year placement programme graduate with a degree from a respected law school and a CV.
If you take the four-year sandwich route, the Law Society may credit your work experience against the solicitors’ two year traineeship requirement.
The Brunel LLB provides students with an opportunity to earn a qualifying law degree and develop a dynamic perspective of English law.
Our students are drawn into the frontlines of legal scholarship and have opportunities to further their knowledge by participating in conferences, seminars and workshops hosted by one of seven research groups in our Law Research Society.
Students are encouraged to get involved in activities that will foster the development of social and professional skills by joining the mooting team and participating in international programmes and professional development seminars. Our reading and film groups, much enjoyed by our students are fantastic ways to explore facets of law in a different context. These extra-curricular opportunities challenge students to take a fresh and contemporary view of law and think outside the box when faced with new concepts.
Throughout their years of study, students are required to confront contemporary, real-world legal challenges and to develop skills of analysis and critical thinking. The School prides itself on developing students for professional life and we challenge our students to cultivate the skills required to succeed in 21st century legal practices.
