LLB Law

General

Program Description

Course overview

Study at a traditional, red-brick university where the law has been taught since 1927. This hands-on programme provides the foundations of legal knowledge required if you intend to go into practice.

Opportunities to gain practical skills include paid summer internships with a specialist local law firm, radar, and mini-pupillages, run in partnership with Wilberforce Chambers, which offer the experience of the work done by barristers.

You'll also get the chance to help members of the public with real legal issues through our Law Clinic module.

How you'll study

Throughout your degree, you’re expected to study for 1,200 hours per year. That’s based on 200 hours per 20 credit module. And it includes scheduled hours, time spent on placement and independent study. How this time divided among each of these varies each year and depends on the course and modules you study.
