Why LLB Law?

Law is an incredibly varied and multi-faceted subject which affects every part of human life, from the air we breathe, our relationships both with each other, the state and internationally, whether it be about our education, our employment, travel, property, human rights or health.

The law industry is dynamic and competitive and changes in line with social needs.  A law degree offers diverse career pathways and provides you with a skillset to succeed in almost any career.

Why study our course?
This course offers a practical and contemporary Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), recognised by employers and delivered by leading experts in one of the largest law schools in the country.

Should you choose a legal career, the solid grounding in law, emphasis on skills development and practical real-world insight gained through employer partnerships and pro bono work ensures you graduate ready for the next step of your legal training.

Students value the wide range of optional modules and the opportunity to specialise and hone interests in the second and third year. Research informs teaching at every level and you will investigate and develop core legal knowledge in subjects spanning commercial law, criminal justice, environmental law, human rights and family law.

Real world experience

You will have a wealth of opportunities to gain valuable real-world experience and vital skills during this course. Mooting competitions, guest speakers, field trips, Pro Bono work, placements, and a practical 'Law in Action' module give you insightful knowledge of real life cases and access to UWE's local law network. In addition to this, state of the art mock courtrooms provide regular opportunities to practice legal submissions and gain experience of the court while law simulations allow you to practice key case working skills.

Where it can take you

Our LLB degree provides you with the core legal knowledge to progress to either the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course to become a Solicitor or Barrister. Alternatively you may want to start your legal career immediately or pursue a different career pathway entirely. Law graduates have a broad skillset and are highly valued by employers your options are truly limitless.
