Routes to a professional qualification
The provision of legal services is rapidly changing, with exciting new opportunities opening up. We'll help you navigate through the maze. Lawyers work in a wide range of roles – advising businesses, individuals and public bodies and representing clients in courts and tribunals. We're a global law school, with many of our graduates moving into legal careers outside the UK.
In England and Wales, our LLB degrees meet the requirements for the academic stage of training set by the Bar Standards Board. After this, you can progress through further vocational study and practical training to obtain a professional legal qualification.
