LLB (Hons) Law is a Qualifying Law Degree that is recognised by both the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB). It offers innovative, exciting challenges and provides opportunities to enter a wide range of law-related roles.

LLB (Hons) Law is the key route that students follow if they plan to enter the legal profession. From the opportunity to take part in mock trials to student conferences, the unique feature of this award is its student-centred, problem-based approach to learning. You’ll be offered a supportive, guided environment to practice lawyering skills and to create awareness of rules that lawyers should apply in practice, and the roles of lawyers in society.

The Foundation Year is part of our LLB suite of courses and is designed to encourage non-standard entrants to access the study of law and entry to the legal professions.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: LLB (Hons) Law

Course content

A key aspect of our course is the opportunity to participate in a number of work-related learning experiences that reflect graduate-level employment. For example, students join in presentations, meeting scenarios, case studies, interviewing and negotiation – and have the opportunity to practice advocacy.

In Year 1, you will study the same subjects as all three-year LLB course routes. A workshop-based skills module runs throughout this academic year along with large group sessions and small workshops covering another three core modules. The focus is on practice-based learning, using authentic scenarios and skills exercises.

In Year 2, you will continue with your study of the foundations of legal knowledge, but also study a module distinctive to your Law award.

In your final year, you will focus on specialist law modules, such as: Family Law, Criminology, Company Law, Commercial Transactions, Employment and Equality Law, Environmental Law and Human Rights. Every year, we host our own Law Careers Fair and Networking Event. They attract a wide range of employers for students to network with.

The Foundation Year incorporates a variety of learning experiences to prepare students both academically and personally for the challenges of studying an undergraduate law degree.  Great emphasis is placed on developing the skill of reflection so as to enable students to identify and address specific learning needs and objectives.  The high level of pastoral support on the award reinforces this approach. On successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will move on to the full 3 year LLB programme.

During the first two teaching blocks of Level 4, students follow the same schedule of study as all students on the first year of any of our undergraduate law courses. Students then study a foundation of legal knowledge subject (e.g. Criminal Law or Land Law) and the Legal Principles module during an intensive accelerated learning stage which incorporates a mixture of 2 weeks of face to face learning supplemented by some distance learning activities and discussions so as to accelerate your progression throughout the third teaching block during the summer. The hallmark of the award is the accelerated learning periods which also provide students with the opportunity to network with employers and develop key graduate employability skills.

Following on from the first year of study students move on to complete their study of the foundations of legal knowledge at which point students can study a number of specialist subjects such as Family Law, Criminology, Intellectual Property Law, Information Technology Law, Environmental Law, Company and Commercial Law.

The course is completed with a further period of accelerated learning in which students research for a dissertation and take the module Human Rights as well as completing a work experience and employability module to enhance graduate skills.

There is the opportunity to transfer to our 3 year LLB (Hons) course as well as to our BA (Hons) Legal Studies (a non-qualifying law degree) if circumstances require this, for example, if for any reason a student does not successfully complete the required foundations of legal knowledge.

Academic year

Full-time students take modules worth 60 credits per semester, with part-time students taking proportionately fewer credits per semester. All students take a total of 120 credits per level and 360 credits for the degree as a whole.

Assessment

Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally includes practice or ‘formative’ assessments, for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.
