With careers fairs, guest speakers, and networking events, you can challenge yourself and really understand the profession. 

Learning in practice

Studying legal theory is important, but it’s not the whole picture. You need to develop your skills as a negotiator and problem solver too.

Interactive workshops and our mock courtroom will build your confidence. You can take advantage of our extensive network of professional partners to offer pro bono legal advice to real clients, under supervision. 

This is supported by our expert teaching staff, who have years of experience working in various legal professions.

Specialist knowledge

This (Hons) LLB programme from Manchester Metropolitan University gives you the chance to specialise in particular legal fields and prepare for a career you’re passionate about. 

In Years 2 and 3 you can choose from a variety of option units to dig deeper into specific areas. Our mentoring scheme provides further support as you decide which direction you want to take with your career.


A law degree will pave the way for a career in this highly regarded profession. But the skills and knowledge you develop are also attractive to employers in other sectors.

You could join an in-house legal team, work for the police, or become a journalist. If law is your passion, you can go on to qualify as a solicitor or barrister.

Some of our graduates have gone on to work for charities, the civil service or in the corporate sector. Your intellectual ability and communication skills will serve you well whatever path you follow.

You might decide to study at postgraduate level to achieve your LLM. Or explore the legal landscape through research.

Take the opportunity to go on a work placement or work with our pro bono partners to gain legal experience and learn more about professional life before you graduate. You’ll gain confidence and boost your CV.
