    LLB routes: LLB routes

    The Foundation year in Law is designed to take you into the three year LLB degree if you have few formal qualifications.

    The LLB single honours degree is a qualifying law degree for the purposes of the Law Society and the Bar Council and allows you to move directly to the Legal Practice Course or the Bar Vocational Course.

    We have been innovative in launching the two year LLB, one of the first in the country and have had very successful graduates from this fast track course. We have also been innovative in offering combined awards that still are qualifying law degrees, such as the LLB(Sports Law), LLB(Criminology) and LLB(Human Rights).

    LPC: LPC

    The LPC is the postgraduate stage on the route to becoming a solicitor and represents a practical training for the solicitors' profession, where students learn how to put law into practice. Most students study the LPC after completing the academic stage of training by means of passing a law degree or a graduate Diploma in Law (GDL). What has to be studied at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in order to become a solicitor is largely determined by the Law Society and is therefore largely the same at any provider.

    The course is available full-time over one academic year. We also offer a part-time day route over two days per week for two academic years as well as a part-time evening route over two evenings per week for two academic years.
