Why study LLB Law with International Relations at Middlesex University?
An LLB Law with International Relations from Middlesex is recognised by the two main legal professional bodies, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (solicitors) and the Bar Standards Board (barristers) as a Qualifying Law Degree that satisfies the first (or âacademicâ) stage of professional legal education and training. It additionally develops your understanding of the ethical, social, political, economic, cultural and historical contexts within which the law operates, as well as providing skills of legal analysis and an ability to evaluate legal systems and processes.
The LLB Law with International Relations combines the compulsory âFoundations of Legal Knowledgeâ, a requirement of the legal professional bodies to satisfy the first or academic stage of professional legal education, with optional modules that explore further specific areas of expertise within the law. The seven âFoundations of Legal Knowledgeâ are: Public Law, the Law of Contract, Tort, EU Law, Criminal Law, Equity and Trusts, and Land Law. These form the core modules of your LLB as a Qualifying Law Degree. Additionally gain the specialist knowledge and understanding of law and international relations and the complexities therein, developing skills and equipping you with expertise to move towards professional and related practice in this area.
You will benefit from a vibrant clinical legal education initiative that places law students with professional legal bodies and practitioners in order to combine hands-on work experience with the formal requirements of legal academic education.

I loved Middlesex a lot, my time here was very inspiring and there was so much to do on campus and in town. You’re not too far from London, with Camden 15 minutes away on the tube which has some great student nights on during the week. There’s also loads of amazing societies and events on campus and I found getting involved incredibly rewarding, and the university was very welcoming to all of its students. The careers service also helped me find a wide range of employment during my course, and prepared me for the real world!
