    Sheffield Hallam University offering qualifying law degrees recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

    Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) is a Higher Education institution based in the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield, England. The university is based on two sites in Sheffield. City Campus is in the city centre, adjacent to Sheffield railway station, and Collegiate Crescent Campus is about two miles away, adjacent to Ecclesall Road in southwest Sheffield.

    The University is the sixth largest in the UK, with 30,000 students, over 4,000 staff and 650 courses. The last Research Assessment Exercise in 2001 placed SHU joint top amongst the newer universities.

    One of the university's priorities is to promote regional wealth creation through enterprise and knowledge transfer. This commitment is represented at strategic level via the Sheffield First Partnership – a high-level public, private and voluntary sector partnership which exists to develop and implement economic and social strategies for the city.

    We designed this course for non-law graduates wanting a career in the legal profession.

    It is also suitable if you are a law graduate without a qualifying law degree, such as:

    • the Legal Practice Course with a view to training as a solicitor
    • the Bar Vocational Course with a view to being called to the Bar


    This is a challenging and rewarding course. It is an intensive 36 week programme (full-time route) designed to give you the foundation of knowledge and academic law needed to be a competent lawyer.

    During the course, you examine the key foundation areas of law which are:
    • public law
    • European Union law
    • law of contract
    • law of torts
    • criminal law
    • land law
    • equity and trusts.


    You complete a research project in an area of your choice. For example, family law, medical law, law of evidence, company law and sports law.

    You also:
    • examine the workings of the English legal system
    • develop the key skills needed to become a lawyer including legal research, problem solving, critical judgement
    • learn how to construct and present an argument about legal materials and how to evaluate the merits of more than one view

    LLM/PgDip/PgCert Corporate Law and Strategy

    Full-time and part-time

    This course addresses current corporate and legal debates and problems. You learn to present sophisticated analyses of ethical problems in management.

    It is for people currently working in a managerial role in law, personnel, human resources or corporate administration in public or private organisations. It helps your career prospects and gives you a strategic understanding of the modern workplace from a legal and corporate perspective.

    The course is also useful for recent graduates who wish to demonstrate that they have the skills necessary for a business career.

    You learn how to view the connections between law and management, and decide how further research should be done. Academic theory can help clarify problems and guide solutions.

    You also learn to recognise conflicts and ambiguities between law and corporate strategy, and make informed judgements about how to accommodate these. Plus you develop solutions that make a positive impact on the corporate strategy of an organisation.

    Your studies allow you to develop original perspectives and theories on law and management, using current research and literature.

    Our vibrant and multi-cultural student community is one of Britain’s largest and we are one of the UK’s most forward-looking universities with some of the best facilities. There is an excellent student support network with debating and mooting societies supported by sponsorship.
