All LLB programmes provide a rounded legal education as well as covering all the mandatory subjects for the law societies. Due to the changing nature of the legal landscape, the modules on offer are continually updated to ensure that your knowledge is current. As a provider of qualifying law degrees there are some subjects we must offer. These include: the foundations of law; contract law; tort or delict; criminal law and evidence; public law; European Union law; property law; commercial law; and family law.
In your final years you can choose from a wide variety of subjects offered within the Law School that may include competition law, environmental law, intellectual property law, employment law, forensic science, tax law, international criminal law, public and private international law. We also offer an innovative honours option called “Law in Practice” to hone skills such as client interviewing, presentation and professional ethics. In addition, you will prepare a dissertation which is a substantial piece of research on a topic of your choice which can be aligned to your career objectives.
Also available as joint degrees with MA subjects e.g. European studies (ES), history (H), philosophy (Ph), politics (P). Please enter the relevant option code (in brackets) under ‘Further Details’ in the ‘choices’ section of the UCAS application.
