Qualifying Law Degree Programmes

If you are a graduate with a humanities, social science or science degree, wishing to convert to Law, a school/college leaver seeking an undergraduate degree in Law, an employee in a law-related industry seeking to improve job prospects, or if your priority is to take a qualifying degree in Law without compromising family and other social responsibilities, our triple-track LLB/LLM Qualifying Law Degree programme will be perfect for you. Whether you complete your studies in 2, 3, 4 or 6 years, you will receive a degree recognised by the SRA and BSB as exempting you from the first stage of legal training. All of our qualifying law degree programmes are taught during the evening, and we devote three hours of classroom contact to each of the compulsory qualifying law degree modules.
