Overview

Our programmes are taught with a legal profession-facing emphasis on substantive content that is of real-life relevance, whilst developing the academic and practical skills required by the legal profession and employers more generally. In addition, the Exeter Law School challenges its undergraduate law students to maximise their potential. 

This LLB in Law is offered at The University of Exeter. We seek to further the development of its students as independent learners, researchers and problem solvers by placing greater responsibility on individual students, by way of student-centred and problem-based learning, with increased academic and other support in the structure and delivery of our programmes.

We aim to offer as many activities as possible to help broaden career development and equip students with the skills employers find most valuable. These include team building, employer visits, mooting, pro bono and skills sessions (such as advocacy and negotiation), which provide many opportunities to gain transferable skills and to meet and interact with potential employers.

Problem-based learning will help students apply what you have learned in lectures to real-world situations, while developing professional and practical skills from the very beginning of your degree. In Year 1 Law students will work in ‘syndicates’ – allocated study groups of about 12 students. You will initially be mentored by a Peer Tutor (usually a Year 2 Law undergraduate). You will have the opportunity to work on a varied case load throughout the academic year; working on your own and with all or some of the members of your syndicate.

Study abroad opportunities are available for high achieving students on a competitive basis.

Careers

We have an excellent track record of graduate employment. Many firms target the University when recruiting new graduates and our annual Law Fair provides one of several opportunities to meet prospective employers.

We have an excellent relationship with members of the legal profession who are in regular contact with students through activities such as workshops, skills sessions, mooting and networking.

Students also benefit from our strong links with alumni all over the world. Many of our alumni are in senior positions and include:
