Program description

Do you need further preparation for a university legal studies program? Have you given any thought to pursuing a career in law? To students like you, we offer the LLB (Hons) Law with Foundation Year. Students in the Foundation Level receive supplemental instruction in the areas of research, writing, information technology, mathematics, and the law. Your self-assurance in law school will increase as a result.

This program will prepare you for a range of exciting legal occupations in fields including journalism, politics, law enforcement, education, and more if you want to become a solicitor or barrister. Our law foundation course is open to anyone, so you don't have to have a certain vocation in mind to join us. You'll figure out what areas of law interest you most over your first few years of study.

In response to developments in the UK professional law qualification system, we have updated our LLB degree with foundation year entrance, which is offered at our UK study centers and online. If you wish to practice law as a barrister, you'll need to study for the SQE 1 and then do the Bar Practice Course. If you live in a common law jurisdiction other than the UK, you should consider taking electives in EU and international law.
