Graduate Entry LLB

The Graduate Entry LLB (GE LLB) is a rigorous two year programme a qualifying law degree recognised by the Solicitors’ Regulatory Authority and the Bar Standards Board as satisfying the academic stage of qualification for legal practice in the UK. As a non-law graduate, this fast-track senior status law degree will enable you to achieve an LLB law degree in just two years rather than the usual three. This course is for graduates who have a proven academic track record who wish to gain a qualification in law either for legal professional purposes or to advance their careers in law-related fields. The course attracts many international students, particularly Canadians who, once they graduate, are well on the way to satisfying the Canadian NCA requirements. On this programme, you will learn in a separate cohort of Graduate Entry LLB students for the core subjects and together with the LLB third year students for elective modules. If you intend to practise in law in the UK, the GE LLB Programme offers you the possibility of obtaining exemption from the academic stage of training over two years instead of the one year Graduate Diploma. Not only does this give you the chance to take electives in legal subjects, but also gives you the chance to acquire work experience in the summer vacation. Instruction in the use of legal materials, legal writing, mooting and in legal research (including the use of electronic retrieval systems) is an integral part of the course. You can choose at least three subjects in your second year from an extensive list of interesting elective courses to suit your interests. You will also have a wide range of extra-curricular activities to engage in, such as mooting and client interviewing. The Law School has an extensive pro bono programme with a Pro Bono Fair at the beginning of the year to inform you of the options available.
