The LLB in Law and Politics joint honours degree was the first of its kind in the University of London. Tt offers you the opportunity to study the closely related disciplines of Law and Politics side by side in a three-year programme. The LLB Law and Politics 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. The degree is aimed at those who wish to pursue a career in which knowledge of both the legal and governmental systems is of major importance, and should appeal especially to those wishing to study public policy in its legal context. For anybody considering a career in either law or an alternative sector Law and Politics graduates are very employable. Students who choose the non-qualifying route will transfer on to the BA Law and Politics pathway in their second year of study, and graduate with a Bachelor of Arts, not an LLB.
