The two-year LLB programme is a postgraduate programme that is designed to provide a legal education to graduates in disciplines other than law. It is increasingly the case that graduates in disciplines such as Business Studies, Public Administration, Arts and Engineering wish to supplement their studies with a legal education. Entrants are drawn from two sources: graduates who seek admission immediately on the completion of their primary degrees and mid-career professionals whose career prospects would be enhanced by having a law degree. The core of the programme consists of law modules taken in common with the other specialist law programmes offered by the School of Law.
An applicant who has studied a substantial number of law modules in their primary degree may be eligible for exemptions and may complete the degree in one year. Exemptions are subject to the approval of the Course Director and are decided on a case-by-case basis.
