    hi guys, just wanted to know what college of law was like and what the graduate prospects are?
    The college of law is so new it's hard to find accurate graduate recruitment rates. Secondly, the majority of their students will not go straight into work but go onto the bptc or the lpc; both which the college of law provide. Therefore their graduate further training statistics are likely to be high as they are most likely to accept their own students.

    In many reports looking at grad recruitment in big law firms, the majority are people from durham exeter Cambridge etc etc but because the college of laws llb is so new it's going to take time for their students to break in so it's not a suprise they're not a majority in any firm.

    I would suggest that if you are going there, you do A LOT of extra curricular work for your C.V because when your applying to jobs your going to be in competition with people from Cambridge etc.

    Hi rhysbarton98!

    Saw your post - we thought you might find some information about The College of Law (now The University of Law) and our LL.B helpful.

    Our law degree programmes are designed to give you the best possible start to your career as a modern lawyer, and you'll learn the law in a practical, professional context. Our tutors have unrivalled experience of training students for legal careers, and you will benefit from direct, face-to-face access with practising lawyers. You can find out more about our LL.B here.

    Our students have access to a wide range of pro bono work placements and over 3,000 legal job vacancies a year, and leave the University with the practical skills that employers are looking for. We can confirm that 83% of our Legal Practice Course students secure training contracts or other legal work within months of passing their course (based on known destinations of students passing their full-time LPC in summer 2011).

    You can find out more about student life at the University here and here. Alternatively, why not visit us for an open day? They're the best way to get a feel for what it will be like to study with us and you often get a chance to speak to current students about their experiences. Details of our open days here.

    Let us know if we can help with any queries about our LL.B - and feel free to keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter:
