This course runs in 2016/17.
A successful lawyer has the ability to analyse a case, identify key facts, research the relevant law and communicate clearly the way forward. This course will give you the knowledge and expertise to do just that.
Our LLB Law will develop your practical legal skills as well as providing you with an in-depth academic education, putting you in an excellent position both for future careers within, and outside, the legal profession.

- support in applying for a work placement which is a valuable experience;
- the option to spend a year studying overseas which provides you with international experience that many businesses are looking for when employing a graduate;
- regular guest lectures from employers who specialise in different areas of the law, giving you the opportunity to network with professionals;
- a dedicated moot room, or mock court, where you will have the opportunity to develop your advocacy skills by presenting legal issues or problems against an opposing counsel and before a judge;
