Our LLB is divided into routes. Your choice will depend upon a number of factors:
- Do you wish to study for a Qualifying Law Degree (where the majority of your modules are pre-set), or a Non-Qualifying Degree (which allows you more choice)?
- Do you hold a degree that makes you eligible for Graduate Entry? (Study 9modules to complete, instead of the usual 12.)
Standard Entry Route - Qualifying Law Degree (LLB)
Standard Entry Route - Non-Qualifying Law Degree (LLB)
Graduate Entry Route - Qualifying Law Degree (LLB)
Graduate Entry Route - Non-Qualifying Law Degree (LLB)
- If you are not eligible for the LLB, can you access an approved local teaching institution? This may allow you to study the CertHE Common Law and progress to the LLB.
If you wish to study for a Qualifying Law Degree, we recommend that you check the requirements of the professional body in the jurisdiction in which you wish to practise before committing to the degree.
The Programme Specifications and Programme Regulations contain information and rules regarding what modules may be chosen and the order in which they must be studied.
Local teaching support
Our courses are designed to be studied independently, but if you would like to attend classes, you can enrol at one of our approved local teaching institutions around the world and benefit from local study support and the facilities of a campus-style environment.
To receive teaching support, you must apply directly to an approved teaching institution. Institutions may set earlier deadlines than the course deadlines listed above.
We will send you study materials developed by academics from the Laws consortium. These include:
- Module guides (see samples under Legal system and method, Criminal law, Contract law and Public law).
- Statute books provided for all modules where they are permitted in the examination.
When you register, we will give you access to your Student Portal. You can then access your University of London email account and other key resources:
- The Laws Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) enables access to course materials, resources, and audio and video lectures.
- Discussion forums for each module, where you can share perspectives with fellow students from all over the world, and a Director’s forum for academic queries.
- The Online Library holds thousands of journal articles which you can access free of charge. Access more than 10 legal databases, including Lexis/Nexis, Westlaw and other valued materials.
- Lecture Plus: for select modules, you can view a recorded lecture and engage afterwards in a dedicated discussion forum.
- Formative assessment: for some modules, you have an opportunity to receive feedback on how you are performing against the criteria applied by examiners.
Regional revision courses
Taught by approved tutors, these are for students around the world preparing for examinations. Meet other students on the programme and focus on important areas within each module.
All modules (except the Dissertation) are assessed entirely by written examination. These are held in May/June and October at local examination centres around the world. You can sit a maximum of two modules in the October session.
Our examinations are set and marked by academics appointed as examiners. They reflect the same standards as those who study on-campus at the University of London Law Schools.
