Why study this course?
This programme enables you to upgrade your Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), also known as the Common Professional Exam, to a full LLB Law. If you have a non-law degree, the GDL plus the top-up will allow you to obtain a Bachelor of Law degree in two years instead of the usual three.
Our LLB Law course scored highly in the National Student Survey 2021, with a 91% overall student satisfaction score and a 92% score for teaching.
More about this course
Our LLB Law (Top-up) (Distance Learning) degree is offered via distance learning, complete with comprehensive supervision of your dissertation. You do not need to have completed your Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) with London Met to enrol on this programme. International students are also welcome.
The module requires you to undertake detailed, critical research into a law topic of your choosing and write a research plan and essay.
This course is recognised as a Qualifying Law Degree for progression to the Legal Practice Course (solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course (barristers).
Where this course can take you
Many LLB graduates go on to train as a solicitor or barrister. As well as qualifying you for this next stage of training, the course also opens the door to many other graduate careers, including roles in business, media, voluntary organisations and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
