Looking to get your legal career off to a great start? Solent University’s LLB has been designed to give graduates maximum flexibility when choosing their future progression. If you are hoping to become a solicitor or barrister, this course incorporates a Qualifying Law Degree and lays a professionally accredited foundation of knowledge – ideal preparation for the vocational training that you will be required to undertake after graduation.
Solent University’s Law subject area was ranked 14th in the Guardian University League Tables 2019.
The course’s professional accreditations ensure that it is providing high standards of education and training for future barristers and solicitors. These accreditations also act as a seal of approval from the industry, showing employers that the course meets the standards set by the industry itself.
As a qualifying law degree, this LLB programme also exempts students from the initial stages of solicitor or barrister training for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This can shorten future professional training requirements by as much as one year.
The University’s moot courtroom enables students to practice their legal skills and gain courtroom experience.
Solent University is a founding member of the Southampton City Law Network, which promotes the interests of local law students, teachers, lawyers, and other legal professionals. Connections made through this network have presented guest lectures for students, bringing the theory learnt in the classroom to life with real working examples.
