About

Law is an interesting and challenging discipline which impacts at every level, from people's individual daily lives to the operations of Government on the international stage. Increasingly the international dimension to legal study has become more important, across a wide range of legal areas, as the influence of the European Union and international organisations have become so significant.

The legal professions require graduates to possess both intellectual and practical skills, and the course explicitly addresses these requirements with a structured programme of skills development. It will also equip you with the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

The LLB Law (Honours) degree at the University of Westminster provides you with an excellent amount of choice. Alongside the core modules, required by the professional legal bodies, you are able to study a wide range of distinctive modules to suit your areas of interest.
