Whether you’re looking to become a solicitor or a barrister, the LLB is the main route that people take towards getting qualified in the legal profession. It’s your first step on the way to what could be a brilliant, dynamic and rewarding career. This course gives you the chance to gain a firm understanding of legal principles and core legal concepts. As you progress you’ll be able to start focussing on the topics that interest you, particularly in your second and third years, when you can choose from a range of specialised modules. Whichever side of law you go into, employers will be looking for a wide variety of skills, not just an understanding of law, but how to apply that understanding, how to put forward an argument, attention to detail, and the ability to work in a team. We’ll help you to build your skills while you study and make yourself more attractive to potential employers. To help you take the first steps on your legal career we aim to give you as much experience as possible. Our Partners in Law scheme is a pretty unique service that could give you all the support you need. We can provide you with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through our links with regional and internationally renowned legal firms. Firms that are currently part of Partners in Law include Pinsent Masons, DLA Piper, Walker Morris, Eversheds, Hammonds, Chadwick Lawrence, Armitage Sykes, Ramsdens Solicitors, Eaton Smith, Ridley and Hall, Switalskis, Wilkinson Woodward and Kirklees Council Legal Services.
