Many UK-based legal firms have overseas offices, and English-speaking lawyers are highly sought after by organisations all over the world - if you’re looking for a successful international career in the law, this course gives you the academic training you need to become a solicitor or barrister. While English law is used in many countries, you’ll look at it in an international context, identifying which areas of law are dealt with globally and which are dealt with using the domestic legal system. To boost your language skills and further increase your employability, you’ll spend your third year studying abroad.
Successful completion of this combined LLB (Hons) enables you to go on to the professional element of legal training either as a solicitor (the Legal Practice Course) or as a barrister (the Bar Professional Training Course). Our Law School graduates are highly sought after in the workplace, which is why we’re consistently ranked in the UK’s top 20% of law schools for graduate level employment (Destination of Leavers of Higher Education survey).
