Law

LLB Hons

  • UCAS: M100
  • Typical length: 3 years

Overview

This course is designed to teach you skills in discovering the law for yourself (perhaps the most important ability in a legal career) and in arguing, writing and thinking critically about the law.

An important aspect of the Hull LLB is its flexibility. Alongside the compulsory subjects, you are free to choose from a variety of optional modules, such as the practical Law Clinic based in the Law School’s award-winning Legal Advice Centre.

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

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.
