Law with Foundation Year - Birkbeck, University of London

Our new Foundation Year programmes provide the best possible preparation for degree-level study at Birkbeck. They are ideal if you do not meet the entry requirements for the undergraduate degree you would like to study, if you feel you are not quite ready for an undergraduate degree, or if you are returning to study and need extra help and support. Whatever your background and circumstances, Birkbeck's Foundation Year degrees will prepare you for success. Upon successful completion of the one-year Foundation Year, in which you will develop your core knowledge and skills in law, you will automatically progress on to our three-year, full-time evening study LLB Law. You will study law in a historical, social and comparative context, and develop advanced skills in legal writing, reasoning and analysis, oral presentation and the capacity for critical reflection on and about law. Successful completion will qualify you to pursue vocational training, if you wish to practise. The degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. **HIGHLIGHTS** - Our School of Law is a leading international centre for world-class legal teaching, research and scholarship and is the most rapidly expanding law school within the University of London. - We are among the top 10 law schools in the UK and in the top three in London in the Times Higher Education 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) rankings, while our research environment was judged conducive to producing research of the highest quality. - Dedicated academic skills workshops are run at Birkbeck by our Senior Learning Development Tutor, who can advise on essay-writing, time management, efficient reading and note-making, giving presentations and participating in seminars. - We encourage our students to participate in the wide range of extracurricular activities we offer, including lectures by internationally renowned guest speakers, our Student Law Society, our annual retreat to Cumberland Lodge in Windsor, which allows you to explore contemporary issues in law with specialist speakers, and our successful mooting and mock trial programme, where advocacy training is given by experienced practising barristers. - Students may also apply to take part in the mentoring programme and an externship with the Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre. During each year, we offer a range of career-related talks. - The LLB is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and students awarded the degree will be entitled to receive a Certificate of Completion of the Academic Stage of Legal Education for solicitors. It is also recognised by the Bar Standards Board as a qualifying law degree for the purposes of completing the Academic Stage of Training for the Bar.
