The LLB Law three year programme is the largest in the School. It is the traditional LLB course which encompasses the foundations of legal knowledge. These are the essential components that satisfy the Bar Council and Law Society professional requirements which make it a qualifying law degree. In the first year you will take all core modules, whilst the second and third years offer a broad range of optional modules to allow you to widen your interests. Select the course structure tab above to see how these fit into your programme. The LLB Law is taught to the highest of standards at Queen Mary, we engage visiting lecturers who are at the forefront of legal practice in the City, as well as our own academics who are leading researchers in the sector. Should you wish to extend your study for a year, there are a number of programmes you can apply to in your second year of the LLB with a wide range of practice and study abroad opportunities. Currently the largest of these is the LLB Law with a Year in Practice from which students embark on paid internships at leading US law firm Reed Smith.
