This programme is aimed at students who wish to obtain a qualifying law degree, whether for entry into the legal profession, or for other purposes.
The programme offers a sound academic education in law. It combines the acquisition of knowledge of substantive law with the development of skills in reasoning and analysis, and wherever possible it seeks to place law in the wider context of social, political, moral and economic issues. It is forward-looking, particularly with respect to Europe and technological change, and equips students with both legal and transferable skills.
The options enable students to acquire a more complete legal education, so they are able to take up a career in law or other professions.
The LL.B degree is offered under four schemes of examination and students must elect at the time of registration which scheme they wish to follow. Scheme A is a three year course (standard route) and Scheme B is done over four years. Students study the same number of subjects except that in Scheme B they are spread over a longer period. There are also two graduate routes for those who hold a degree in another subject. Graduate Entry Routes A and B comprise a two and three year course respectively. (For further information about entry routes A & B, please contact the office.)
