Programme specification:

This programme offers a qualifying law degree and thus much of its content is constrained by the requirements of the legal profession. The focus on both skills and theoretical knowledge and understanding of the law will mark this programme out from more practice-based degrees, while the availability of other employability skills-enhancing opportunities (through our extensive School co-curricular opportunities) marks the degree out as a distinctive from many Russell Group universities. The degree places an appropriate emphasis on the academic rigour required of students progressing through an LLB programme at a Russell Group University.

The study abroad aspect of the programme distinguishes it from other law degrees in enabling students to acquire specific cross-cultural competence through a period of residence abroad as well as giving them the opportunity to study specifically international law courses and/or courses in foreign law.
