  • UK: University of Buckingham offering qualifying law degrees

    University of Buckingham offering qualifying law degrees recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

    The University of Buckingham is the only degree awarding private university in the United Kingdom.

    The university's two campuses are both located in Buckingham. The upper campus is mainly devoted to Law and Science, while the other, the riverside campus (in the centre of town), focuses on Business and the Humanities. Its prominent academics include philosopher Roger Scruton, educationalist Alan Smithers, the former Chief Inspector of Schools Chris Woodhead, and cancer specialist Karol Sikora.

    “The University of Buckingham may be small in size but it is great in its commitment to providing the very best teachers, to creating a supportive and enabling environment, and to promoting excellent prospects of employment on graduation. We set the highest personal standards in the values we foster and instil in our students so that they can become Ambassadors for their university, their respective countries, and an all-inclusive world. Buckingham's award of the highest rating of student satisfaction in UK universities reflects our caring environment, in which the students enjoy a close-knit, happy and vibrant learning atmosphere. They can maximise their academic achievements, whilst making lifelong friendships and connections across continents.” Susan Edwards, Dean of Law

    About the Law School

    The Buckingham Law School has an enviable reputation as one of the best places to obtain a legal education. With 300 students studying law, it is large enough to offer a wide range of subjects and programmes without losing what it values most - the close connection between the teaching staff and the students. Tutorials in groups of five, active mooting and social schedules and an open door policy means that students have no problem in getting to know the tutors.

    The Buckingham Law School is located in the Franciscan Building which combines offices, teaching rooms, computer rooms and the Denning Law Library conveniently in one spot.

    Undergraduate study: the Buckingham LLB

    Introduction to the LLB
    LLB means Legum Baccalaureus (Bachelor of Laws).

    Law has been taught at universities since the first universities were created. It is natural that students would want to study law. Not only does it educate students in an important body of knowledge and help train them to prepare for a profession, it also develops their ability to analyse and to understand and their ability to look at a world of individuals and groups and to understand the nature of their relationships.

    The Buckingham Law School is a natural choice for someone wanting to study law. The study of law requires intense discussion of the nature of problems and the analytical steps necessary to unwind these problems. It requires a personal approach and the ability to interact with your teachers and the other members of your class. The study of law requires the understanding of different viewpoints and this is best accomplished through the type of small group teaching in which the Buckingham Law School specialises and which makes us different from most other law schools.

    Postgraduate study

    Taught postgraduate study at Buckingham Law School
    Buckingham Law School provides a stimulating environment for the study and teaching of postgraduate law. Whether you are from the UK or overseas, the School aims to produce confident, competent lawyers, able to practice or undertake research anywhere in the world. Teaching is by small seminar groups, which encourages you to develop your potential.

    The main objective of postgraduate study at Buckingham is for you to develop the ability to assess and analyse the law in the fields of your choice. To be effective, a lawyer, or anyone practising in the area of International and Commercial Law in a business capacity, must be able to analyse clearly what are often complex problems, to arrive at rational and informed decisions and to be confident in implementing those decisions. It is also essential that you are able to convince other people (clients or business associates) that your analysis of the situation is an appropriate one.

    Part-time LLB

    The Buckingham Part-time law degree (LLB)

    This programme is designed to offer a unique method of study. It combines the convenience of distance learning with the advantage of regular attendance at seminars where you will receive guidance and support from enthusiastic staff who are experienced in helping students to develop the analytical and research skills necessary for an understanding of the law. Three subjects are studied each year and you will complete your degree in four years.

    We welcome students from a wide variety of backgrounds, from those who are looking for a change of career to those who are returning to education after a long absence. Our experience shows that all students bring their own valuable contribution to the programme and all can be equally successful in gaining an LLB provided they demonstrate sufficient commitment and motivation.

    Applications are welcomed from mature students of all ages. There are no formal entry requirements for mature students on this programme. However, all candidates are interviewed and motivation and work experience are taken into consideration. Younger students will be expected to have gained the equivalent of three grade Cs at A-level.

    The programme is fully recognised as a qualifying law degree by the Law Society and Bar Council. As such, it enables our graduates to proceed to take the professional examinations that lead to qualification as a solicitor or a barrister.
