    Course Summary

    The University of Roehampton’s LLB program has been created to give you not just the academic and professional skills you’ll need to pursue a career as a solicitor or barrister, it has a heavy focus on practice and will train you to ‘think like a lawyer’ from the very first days of the program. You’ll also have input from experts at the Crucible Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice.

    You’ll learn from experienced educators and practicing lawyers. They’ll use problem based learning, mock litigation and even allow you to practice law (closely supervised) through the university’s Legal Advice Clinic.

    The program is a qualifying law degree. That means that one you’ve graduated, you only need to undergo a Training Contract with a qualifying organisation to be fully qualified to practice law in the UK. Of course, there are many other options for employment as well, and you’ll have access to extensive careers advice.

    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.
