Why choose this degree? The LLB (MH501) is a four-year degree almost exclusively in law. It will be of particular interest if you wish to study law in depth and detail. MH501 provides you with a wider selection of law modules than MH502, the BCL, and is one year longer than the latter degree.

This is an innovative programme in Laws at the Maynooth University with strong emphasis on the development of verbal and written advocacy skills through applied modules such as legal writing, negotiation, and dispute resolution.
