The Graduate Entry LLB is a fast track two-year law degree that enables people with a degree in an academic discipline other than Law (at minimum 2:2 level) to earn a qualifying law degree.

We offer two study options. You can choose two years full-time, or three years full-time with a one-year professional placement between the first and second years that will give you hands-on experience working in a legal practice.

You’ll be able to discuss career ideas with your careers advisor and get guidance on placements and further study options.

The legal skills you’ll gain from our Graduate Entry LLB, on top of what you learnt from your previous degree, will make you an excellent candidate for a career in law. 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 professional, sought-after graduate.

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. Brunel students can benefit from discounts for BARBRI SQE preparation courses, and we offer two fully-funded BARBRI scholarships each academic year to our best-performing final year students to help to set you on the path to a successful and rewarding career.

To qualify as a barrister you will need a law degree which covers the foundations of legal knowledge subjects, which the Brunel LLB does. For further information on solicitor and barrister qualification routes, please refer to and
