Law (with International Relations) – LLB (Hons)


Discover how the law impacts on international relations and acquire a range of legal and transferable skills with this fascinating degree course. The LLB is recognised as a qualifying law degree, allowing progression to the Legal Practice Course (solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course (barristers).

This is a highly regarded qualification, enabling you to pursue a wide range of careers beyond the legal profession including those in the diplomatic service, international companies and non-governmental organisations.

You’ll learn the historical background to English legal systems, the role of legal professionals within them and explore other state-based and international systems of law.

You’ll also have access to a spectrum of international relations topics, examining human rights and social justice, African politics, Latin American politics, immigration, asylum and tribunals and international security in the context of globalisation.

We put a strong focus on clinical legal education and our committed and enthusiastic teaching team, along with our specialist speakers and expert practitioners, have links to an extensive network of employers, professional bodies and international organisations and you will also have opportunities to undertake pro bono assignments, to gain experience while studying, and to visit the Central London Criminal Court and the Houses of Parliament.

You will analyse historical precedents and the institutions underlying contemporary international relations, understand the challenges facing the world, and the institutional and political factors involved, as well as making informed judgements about current international affairs and future developments within larger theoretical frameworks and approaches to international relations.

In addition to learning legal rules, their contexts and application, you will develop skills in communication, independent research, teamwork, public speaking and more. The University’s mock courtroom, complete with dock, witness box and public gallery, will introduce you to a courtroom environment and improve your presentation skills.

High quality teaching is enhanced by online learning and academic skills support, mentoring and careers guidance. Workshops, employment fairs and placements are combined with a lively programme of events and talks by guest speakers who have previously included Lord Walker of Gestinghorpe, formerly a Supreme Court judge.

You will be eligible to join the Law Mentoring Programme, which provides support in your personal and professional development from postgraduate London Met mentors who advise on career paths, work experience and commercial awareness as well as helping you you prepare your CV and covering letters.

A collaboration between Clyde & Co, an international law firm, and the East London Business Alliance provides additional mentoring to first year students, who attend six sessions with qualified lawyers to gain confidence and discuss options for entering the legal profession.

You’ll also be invited to careers workshops, postgraduate ‘taster’ sessions and networking events attended by students, London Met staff and legal professionals, and to attend our annual Get Into Law Day, where you will hear from legal professionals about their careers.

The University’s well-established law school offers an unprecedented range of optional modules, opening up a range of careers inside the legal profession and beyond, including roles in business, financial services, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and international relations.
