LLB Hons

  • UCAS: M100
  • Typical length: 3 years


Our course helps you to discover the law for yourself, through arguing, writing and thinking critically about the law.

We foster practice wherever possible, including our Law Clinic module – based in the Law School’s award-winning Legal Advice Centre – where students have the chance to deal with live cases presented by real clients in a practice setting.

You might also want to test your practical legal skills in an enjoyable way by taking part in our student competitions or Pro Bono schemes.

Expand your horizons further and apply to spend a year abroad in France, Germany or Spain (subject to language requirements) or the Netherlands.
