    Course Summary

    Graduates of the University of York’s LLB program gain more than just a qualifying law degree. They gain the kind of analysis and reasoning skills they need to handle complex questions of politics, ethics and social concerns, as well as the judgment to do so appropriately.

    This program contains all the required academic content, but also works in a great deal of interdisciplinary perspective and practical experience, turning out very well-rounded graduates who understand law in a variety of contexts and settings.

    This is a Qualifying Law Degree, accredited both by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board.

    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.

    Course Outline

    This program is delivered over the course of 3 years for most students. It is somewhat unique, in that it is delivered in three parallel ‘learning streams’.

    Everyone will take modules from the ‘Foundation’ stream, as these are the core curriculum required for a qualifying law degree. However, you may choose classes from either or both of the ‘Clinical’ and ‘Law and Society’ streams in order to better define your specialisation or likely area(s) of practice.

    Those with a strong interest in the actual practice of law will select many modules from the Clinical stream, whereas those with more academic or inter-disciplinary ambitions might select heavily for the Law and Society stream.

    Students are also encouraged to study abroad for various lengths of time during their degree studies. This presents a wonderful opportunity to explore the law in a multicultural context, and is also a very rewarding experience on a personal level.

    Learning & Teaching

    York is the only UK law school to champion problem-based learning. It is considered a very practical, effective method and helps students to get a firm grasp on the techniques and skills they need to succeed professionally. Their division of the program into 3 separate learning streams is also unusual, but very effective.

    Career Possiblities

    This is a Qualifying Law Degree, and it is accepted as fulfilling the academic part of your law training. Graduates who wish to become solicitors or barristers will go on to take the LPC or the BPTC. Others will stay in academia, taking a PhD or MPhil degree at York or elsewhere.

    The University of York’s LLB program takes full advantage of the Careers and Development organisation York has assembled with the aid of local and national law firms and vocational learning providers. It is designed to make sure their graduates offer the skills and abilities most in demand, all but ensuring a successful, rewarding career.
