The LLB is the largest undergraduate degree course offered by the Law School. It covers the core subjects of legal study and provides you with an extensive range of optional subjects to suit your particular interests and career plans. It is a qualifying law degree and thus provides exemption from the Common Professional Examination (CPE) which is otherwise required by students who wish to become barristers or solicitors.
In the first year you study six course units, three in each semester. These will be Legal Method; Contract, Public Law I; Public Law II; Criminal Law and Tort.
In the second year you also study six course units across the two semesters. Four of these will be compulsory: Equity and Trusts; Land Law; European Union Law and Jurisprudence. In addition, you will choose two further options.
The current list of options includes:
Human Rights; Company Law & Partnership; Criminal Justice; Employment Law; Mental Health Law; Principles of Law, Medicine and Ethics; Criminal Evidence; Family Law & Relationships; Law of Freedom of Expression; Counter Terrorism; Insurance Law; Youth Justice & Juvenile Delinquency; Comparative Law; Consumer Law; Sale & Supply of Goods; Environmental Law; Constitutional Reform; Intellectual Property Law; Public International Law; Sentencing & Penal Policy; Law & Ethics in War and Warfare; Education Law; Policing & the Police; Drugs & Society; Child Law; International & European Labour Law; Law, Literature & Art and Sociology of Law
In the third year you study six units, to be chosen from the above list. It is also possible to submit a dissertation in place of one of these subjects. It may not always be possible to offer all optional subjects in any one year.
