    Course Summary

    Newcastle University’s Law Program is a qualifying law degree, recognised by both the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority. That means that graduates can move directly into a BPTC or LPC program as soon as they successfully complete the program.

    In addition to the academic side of the program, NU’s LLB program includes many elements specifically designed to improve your employability in the competitive field of Law. You’ll have opportunity to engage in law clinic based Pro Bono work, which will develop your teamwork, legal research and presentation skills. You’ll explore mooting and client interviewing workshops, and have access to a limited number of annual internships.

    You will also have the chance to take 9 to 12 months of paid work placement between your 2nd and 3rd years. Alternatively, you might spend that time studying abroad with a partner university’s law school.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning & Teaching
