Law courses at Northampton
At undergraduate we offer the following courses:
LLB (Hons) 3 year degree
This Qualifying Law Degree gives exemption from the academic stage of qualification for both branches of the legal profession. Therefore it is ideal for those intending to qualify as a solicitor or barrister.
Students benefit from court and prison visits, a dedicated Moot Room for moots and mock trials, and strong links with the local legal profession. Visiting law firms and barristers provide students with career advice. Visit the LLB (Hons) course page for full details.
LLB (Hons) Intensive 2 year degree
This intensive LLB allows you to condense three years of study into two years, accelerating your career development. It also has Qualifying Law Degree status, providing exemption from the academic stage of qualification for both branches of the legal profession, making it ideal for those intending to qualify as a solicitor or barrister. Visit the LLB (Hons) Intensive course page for full details.
LLB (Hons) 3 year joint honours degree
Law is very well suited to combined study alongside another area of interest. You will study four compulsory law modules and two modules from your other subject in your first year. If you are majoring in Law and wish to use your degree to satisfy the professional legal bodies for exemption purposes, at least two thirds of your degree must be in Law and must cover the foundation subjects identified by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board. Guidance is given to those students who are interested in achieving this when they are making their module choices.
The Law modules have been designed to provide a sound basic legal education and to complement other subject areas in the joint honours programme, particularly social science and business-oriented subjects. Visit the Law joint honours course page for full details.
At postgraduate level, we offer two main masters courses, both of which are open to anyone with a good degree in any discipline. We also offer a qualification for those already in the legal profession.
