You want to become a solicitor or barrister, or hone your legal knowledge for careers in business, finance and public service. Our LLB (Hons) Law degree is accredited by the SRA and BSB, so you know you’re in good hands.

When you graduate, you’ll be equipped with in-demand skills that will take you far, whichever career path you choose.

- Join our Law Society and take part in national competitions including mooting and Client Interviewing (won by ARU a record six times)

Our LLB (Hons) Law is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Boards (BSB), and as such is the first step to becoming a solicitor or a barrister in the UK. But if you hope to use your interest in law for a different career, such as business or policy making, our LLB (Hons) will help you develop key transferable skills, including critical thinking and problem-solving, that can broaden your options.
Our modules blend the academic with the practical, with options including Human Rights Law, Sports Law and Intellectual Property Law. Your assessments will range from exams and essays to mooting, online discussions and group work, allowing you to test your progress using career-oriented methods. In the final year, you will also have the option to take up work experience with a local law firm and use your analytical and reflective skills to investigate your own future career options.
This combination of professional and academic law is reflected in our staff team, which consists of practising solicitors as well as research-active academics. You will always find someone to talk to, whether it’s about the course, your career or more personal matters.
We work actively to improve your career prospects. Our personal tutor system will offer you structured support, and we have a dedicated law employability champion as well as faculty employability staff. You can also take part in our mentoring scheme, to get first-hand advice and guidance from a legal professional.
Outside of the course, you will find more help and advice at our careers events, and through the Student Union’s Law Society, who arrange entry to competitions such as the national Mooting and Client Interviewing competitions as well as guest speakers and field trips.
Additionally, by choosing and completing particular modules on the course, you can graduate with two awards: the LLB (Hons) and the Higher Diploma in Paralegal Practice from the National Association of Licensed Paralegals, which can help you secure a job as a paralegal.
From your first year, you will have the opportunity to work in our Law Clinic in Cambridge, supporting and advising members of the public on legal issues. In Chelmsford, you will have the chance to volunteer for the personal support unit at Chelmsford County Court, where you will help people who are going to court without a lawyer through the trial process. We are also planning to open a law clinic on our Chelmsford campus during Semester 1 2018-19.
As well as being a first step to becoming a solicitor, barrister or paralegal, our LLB (Hons) Law will equip you with transferable key skills required for many related roles, including business and commerce, policy making, public services or banking and finance.
We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects, internships or placements.
You can get law careers advice from many sources at Anglia Ruskin, including your tutors, the employability service and the student-led Law Society. We offer a range of schemes and opportunities to enhance your career opportunities. They include:
- our undergraduate researcher scheme, which will allow you to become a research assistant to a member of academic staff working in your field of interest
- a mentoring scheme for second years that will match you with legal professionals who can guide and advise them on career issues
