Accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and the Bar Standards Board, this all-encompassing law course will prepare you for work in the law profession, as well as offer you lots of practical experiences by attending court, taking part in Moot Courts and Moot Show Trials, guest lectures and exploring life in the legal profession on various field trips.
We know it’s difficult to decide which area of law you’d like to focus on when you’re just setting out on your training, which is why all of our law pathways share a common first semester. This means that you don’t need to make any major decisions about which branch of law you’d like to specialise in until you’ve spent a term studying the subject area and have a better grasp of what each field entails. As well as LLB Law, we offer Entertainment Law and Law with Politics.
Many students play an active role in our Law Society, who organise a variety of events from the Christmas Law Ball to networking events or guest speakers with professionals in the legal sector. You'll also have the opportunity to learn a new language (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic and Mandarin Chinese) through our Languages at BU Community.
UK and EU students will undertake a compulsory minimum 30-week work placement in year three, at home or abroad. This is the perfect opportunity to experience legal practice in a real-world setting and make contacts for the future. What’s more, if your placement meets the necessary criteria, it can count towards a portion of your training contract after graduation. The placement is optional for International (non-UK/non-EU) students, who can choose to complete the course in three years (full-time study), without a work placement if this better suits your needs. This applies to all LLB (Hons) Law pathways.
94% of our final year students agree our staff are good at explaining things – join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an Open Day.
