The LLB Law programme is both challenging and stimulating and enables you to build the skills required for a career in law and a wide range of professions. In addition to the foundation modules constituting the academic stage of training that is necessary to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales, known as the Qualifying Law Degree , we offer a wide selection of optional modules which cover traditional and contemporary legal subjects. We also offer the opportunity to study law through the medium of Welsh.
Programme Structure In each year of the course, you will take modules to the value of 120 credits. As well as the foundation modules required in year one, we offer a wide range of optional modules in years two and three that cover both traditional and contemporary legal subjects. This gives you flexibility to follow your interests. The level of degree qualification that you are awarded is based on the grades you achieve in the modules that you take in years two and three. In your second year you will have the opportunity to apply for a work placement which will be carried out in the third year of your LLB Law degree. The full-time, salaried placements will be open to you via a competitive application process which aims to replicate the graduate recruitment processes you will encounter after leaving university. During your placement, you will undertake legal practice as paralegals, and will be performing graduate level roles. You will develop both key practitioner skills such as case management, legal research and legal writing in addition to generic employability skills such as time management, team working and commercial awareness. Placements will be located in Cardiff and will count for 10% of degree classification.
