Mock courtrooms will help enhance the learning process, helping you gain valuable experience in a real world setting.

law UK application

Almost all UK law courses allow students the option of taking a year’s professional placement at a firm, while overseas study is also available. Students can also choose to combine Law with another subject, such as business, politics or journalism. All LLB programmes at UK schools for lawyers are formally accredited by the Law Society of England and Wales and the Bar Council of England and Wales as qualifying law.

The study of Law is stimulating and intellectually demanding, and students will also develop communication skills, problem-solving abilities and a capacity for independent thinking. Throughout your studies, you will have ample opportunity to develop vital skills such as legal research, negotiation and mooting. Mooting (presenting a legal argument), in particular, brings the law alive and enables you to research your case and construct an argument to defeat your opponent, skills of enormous value whatever you go on to do with your LLB course.

Graduate Law Careers and Salary

Whilst many LLB Law degree graduates will go on to practise law either as a solicitor or a barrister, about half of all law graduates choose from an extensive range of other careers in the private and public sectors.

In addition to traditional roles such as solicitors and barristers, Law graduates can use their qualifications to find positions in journalism, business, criminology and many more diverse fields. After completing a Bachelor of Law degree, many students opt to study for a Master of Law.
