The Senior Status LLB in Legal Practice is a course combining academic study of law with work-based skills training for those wishing to become qualified lawyers.
All students have access to our mentoring programme and can take part in pro bono activities offered.
Overseas students may wish to study this programme as a step towards qualifying as a lawyer in their home jurisdiction. The modules you will study are designed to equip you with an in-depth knowledge of the law of England and Wales, together with the practical application of the law you have learned, as well as a broad range of legal skills. The legal system in England and Wales is highly regarded throughout the world, but we cannot guarantee that this qualification will be accepted by the professional bodies in your home jurisdiction, and it is your responsibility to ascertain this before commencing the course.
