Best LLB Degrees in International Law in United Kingdom 2017. This 3-year LLB provides a pathway to a career in law. It covers the key aspects of legal theory and practice at degree level. It equips graduates with the knowledge and skills needed for an entry-level position in a wide range of areas requiring a law qualification. This degree is clearly a natural choice for applicants considering a career as a solicitor, barrister, chartered legal executive or paralegal. Our Law graduates will hone a number of invaluable employability skills, such as: intellectual independence; reflective self-management; awareness of principles and values of law, justice and ethics; an understanding of legal theories that can be applied globally; problem-solving; excellent written and oral communication. Therefore there is a diverse array of employment opportunities for Law graduates in areas such as education, journalism, public relations, business and enterprise, or across the public sector. Professional Body recognition The course is recognised by the legal professional bodies as a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) exempting graduates from the Academic Stage of Training for students seeking to qualify as a solicitor or barrister of England and Wales. Students who complete the Civil Litigation and Client Care module, plus one of the other four practice-based modules, are eligible for admission as a Graduate Member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). This opportunity saves graduates one year of additional study. With CILEx Graduate Member status, our students will be able to use the designatory letters: GCILEx (therefore they would be LLB (Hons), GCILEx). Upon graduation our students who opt for CILEx Graduate Member status could immediately work in a law firm in roles such as a Trainee CILEx Lawyer, Paralegal or Legal Clerk. After completing 3 years of qualifying employment in a law firm, they will be admitted as a Fellow of CILEx (FCILEx) and a Chartered Legal Executive. Fellows can represent clients in court if they qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive Advocate. They can also dual qualify as a Solicitor, without having to complete a two-year training contract. Our LLB is one of only a handful in England and Wales which provides students with this option. Usually membership takes an additional year of study. So our LLB students who decide to pursue a career as a chartered legal executive can benefit from this very unique advantage! Key information We have September start dates for this course. There are two semesters each year. Students complete 2 x 30 credit modules each semester, enabling students to concentrate on fewer modules at a time. Modules are assessed in different ways, e.g. essays, problem questions, case studies, reports, moots, presentations and examinations. Fees Fees for 2016-17 UK/EU: £6,000 per year, equating to a total of £18,000 over the 3 years’ duration of the course. Fees for 2017-18 UK/EU: £6,150 per year, equating to a total of £18,450 over the 3 years’ duration of the course. Entry requirements Applicants normally require UCAS tariff points as below: Entry in Sep 2016: 280 UCAS tariff points Entry in Sep 2017: 112 UCAS tariff points Please note - The drop in the points requirement between the above years is due to UCAS changing their points tariff for courses starting from September 2017, rather than a change in grade requirements. For example, currently an 'A' grade at A-level would earn you 120 points. From 2017 that same 'A' grade would equate to 48 points. So, 280 points equates to three A-levels at grades BBC at A-level currently, but, the same BBC grades in 2017 would be 112 points. Hence the difference in the numbers above. Applicants also require a GCSE Grade C or above in English Language (or equivalent). If a candidate meets the UCAS points requirements (but does not have GCSE English Language at Grade C or above), then they will also be required to pass our own internal English Language test (test and interview) in order to meet our entry requirements. (This only applies to UK, EU and EEA applicants. International applicants WILL require GCSE English Language at Grade C or above, or equivalent). Note: From 2017, English and Maths GCSEs will be graded from 9 to 1, rather than A* to G. All other GCSE subjects will follow with the new grading system in 2019. A current grade 'C' in the new system will be considered to be a '4'. Click here for a quick explanation of the new GCSE grading system from our blog. Applicants must have completed Year 11 (Key Stage 4) Secondary School, or equivalent, at least 2 years prior to the start of the course. Applicants for whom English is a second language require IELTS at 6.0 (minimum 5.5 in each category). [-]
