Relevant QAA Subject Benchmark Groups:

LAW

As the two proposed courses are offered within the framework of the existing LLB in Law and map closely onto the existing LLB in Law with French law, they will satisfy the QAA Law Benchmark Statement (July 2015) and the current PSRB requirements, Joint Academic Stage Board of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board, as well as ensuring that the relative demand, complexity, depth of study and learner autonomy involved are appropriate.
Due to the nature of the JASB requirements, the courses are similar to comparator programmes elsewhere in accommodating the ‘foundation’ law subjects with language modules and preparation for the year abroad in a four year course.

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 Spanish Law and language aspect of the programme distinguishes it from other law degrees in enabling students to acquire specific cross-cultural competence through the study of two very different legal systems, as well as through the acquisition of a high level of linguistic competence in German. Both of these aspects are highly valued in the employment market. The Leeds Law with Hispanic Law degree combines these aspects with the combination of research and skills training which characterises the Leeds Law degree.
