Taken over three years, or four years with an optional salaried placement, core learning provides practical skills in presentation, negotiation, oration, mooting and advocacy and develops an understanding of the English legal system. Law (Hons) is offered by University of Brighton.
This degree is currently recognised by the Solicitors Regulation (SRA) Authority and the Bar Standards Board. It is a qualifying law degree, which means that Law LLB(Hons) graduates will have completed the academic stage of training for entry into the legal profession.
The SRA have announced that they are introducing a new qualifying exam – the Solicitors Qualification Exam (SQE) – which will replace of the existing Legal Practice Course. There's more information on this change in the Solicitors Qualification Exam section below.
As this is a qualifying law degree, you will be able to progress directly to the vocational stage of training: the Legal Practice Course if you want to become a solicitor or the Bar Professional Training Course if you want to become a barrister.
The good communication, problem-solving, analytical and research skills developed during your law degree are needed not only by the legal profession but also are relevant to many alternative careers. Graduates may seek careers in areas such as banking, insurance and Civil Service.
