The Brunel Law LLB gives you the chance to earn a law degree and develop a dynamic perspective of English law – not only what the law is, but why it is.
You’ll learn the theories and principles underlying the law and acquire the research, analytical and communication skills you’ll need for a successful legal career.
We offer two study options. You can choose three years full-time, or four years full-time with a professional placement year between years two and three that will give you hands-on experience working in a legal practice.
You can tailor the final year of your course to specialise in an area of law of particular interest to you.
All of our students have careers advisers with whom you can discuss career ideas with and who can offer guidance on placements and further study options.
Employers know that law graduates have a variety of useful, transferable skills that make them excellent employment prospects in both legal and non-legal careers so you will finish your degree as a professionally sought-after graduate.
The solicitors qualification route will change from 1 September 2021. To qualify as a solicitor you will need a degree and to pass the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE), Parts 1 and 2. The Brunel LLB provides a solid grounding in the core legal subjects aspiring solicitors need to know. There will be a transitional period applicable to students who have completed, started, accepted an offer of a place or paid a non-refundable deposit by 21 September 2021 (inclusive) for a qualifying law degree (QLD). These students will have the option of taking either the 'QLD route' or the 'SQE route'. Brunel LLB programme is a QLD for these purposes. To qualify as a barrister you will need a law degree which covers the foundations of legal knowledge subjects, which the Brunel LLB does.
