Is this course for me?

This LLB will help you develop, not only the core knowledge and understanding of the substance and processes of many areas of law, but also high-level skills in communication, analysis, problem-solving and research, which are essential in many other areas of life.

Among the subjects you will study are the “foundation” subjects of Law - Criminal law, Contract law, Tort, Public law, European Union law, Land law and Equity & Trusts. This means that our LLB is recognised as a “Qualifying Law Degree” (QLD) by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council, and so satisfies the first stage of qualification as a solicitor or barrister.

You will also study modules to develop your legal, professional and personal skills; and you will be able to choose optional modules in a range of legal subjects, and some from subjects from outside Law that complement your legal studies.

A degree in Law is a challenging course, but it is one that brings great rewards during and after the course. This is why the course is so worthwhile and empowering. Many of our students have told us how they have been transformed by the experience with us, and have gone on to do things that they never thought they would have been able to.

The quality of our teaching has been recognised in the National Student Survey and the Complete University Guide. The classes are small and the teaching focuses on interaction. Hence, you will treated as a person, not merely as a number.

Bucks is unusual in providing exceptional support for our students. We know that the course is challenging and that real people may have real problems. This is why we provide excellent teaching and teaching-materials, a pro-active system of personal tutoring and an “open-door” policy for students to contact their tutors.

Our team of tutors combine backgrounds as academics and as practitioners, so they add depth and breadth to your experience of Law. They are committed to nurturing your development in and through the law, ensuring you graduate with the skills and capabilities for a successful and fulfilling career.

We are committed to ensuring every student has positive help in achieving their aims in employment or further study when they graduate. The skills built into the course are a vital part of this, but there are also the talks by outside speakers, the sessions at which our graduates come back to talk about their experiences, the sessions organized by the Careers Service, and the personalised support provided in conjunction with the Careers Service. Moreover, tutors will help you try to find work-experience suited to your needs.

The course was fantastic. The tutors brought law to life by ensuring the lessons were interactive, doing role plays and mock court hearings. I also joined the University Law Society which involved educational and social events such as guest speakers and trips to the courts in London and abroad.
