Bachelor of Laws (LLB) DEI College
The LLB (Hons) degree of the University of Sunderland is an undergraduate programme that leads to a Qualifying Law Degree and allows its graduates to exercise the legal profession. Students are given the option to study full-time or part-time while the programme’s duration may range from 3 to 6 years. Pre-sessional courses are held during the last three weeks of September, regular courses start in October and are completed in May. This is a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by the Law Society of England and Wales and regulated by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority. During the course, you’ll study modules such as ‘Higher Education Skills and Competencies’, ‘Criminal Law and Procedure’, ‘Public Law and the Law of the European Union’ and ‘Practical Tort Law’. By the end of the course, you’ll have the intellectual tools and knowledge to tackle real-world issues within the legal sector or within legal departments of organisations. You can stay on to complete our innovative LLM Legal Practice (LPC), can opt to sit the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination that will be introduced from 2021, or could decide to take a Bar Professional Training Course.
