study Undergraduate Law
More law students have chosen The University of Law than any other UK university in 2021*.
A law degree is a great qualification to start your career with, and our law courses have been designed to provide you with the transferable skills you need to succeed.
Whether you’re interested in working in the legal sector or want to explore other career options, we want to give you the start that you deserve to achieve your ambitions.
All of our LLB (Hons) Law degrees, for example, are Qualifying Law Degrees, which means they are recognised by the Bar Standards Board (which regulates barristers and specialised legal service businesses in England and Wales) and the Solicitors Regulation Authority (which regulates solicitors of England and Wales) for the purpose of exemption from the academic stage of their professional examinations. This means they are recognised to provide the strong foundation of legal knowledge required to go on to study the LPC to become a solicitor or the BPC to become a barrister.
In addition, studying our law degrees will mean you are prepared in part for the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1) or to progress onto our Bar Practice Course (if you wish to qualify as a barrister).
As we specialise in teaching, with a focus on practical problem solving, you’ll develop a formidable range of essential skills that can make all the difference when starting your career. We are constantly expanding our range of courses to meet the needs of students and employers, ensuring you gain the skills that employers are looking for.
Our outstanding team of expert law tutors have excellent experience in training lawyers, and that shows through in our results: 92% of our full-time LLB students graduating in 2017 secured employment or further study within six months of successfully completing their course.
