A new qualification route to practising as a solicitor in England and Wales is currently (June 2019) being developed. This will be a centralised Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE). This LLB course will still enable you to pursue qualification as a solicitor until after these reforms come in.
We also run an annual Legal Recruitment Fair. This attracts high profile employers and organisations wishing to meet students to recruit to graduate positions.
Many of our graduates have gone onto prestigious careers including at the Court of Session, the Old Bailey, the European Court of Human Rights and the UN.
