Course Summary:
Our specialist LLB programme equips you to stand out from the crowd and prepare yourself with specialist knowledge relevant to the career you wish to pursue, you will be taught by both sector leading academics, and qualified solicitors and barristers practitioners with a wealth of real world experience. Our course structure allows you to gain a strong understanding of the foundations of law, before studying your chosen specialism. Our academics offer expertise in areas such as social justice, criminal law, human rights and intellectual property, giving you the opportunity to pursue your interests. Specialising in commercial law will allow you to focus on subjects specific to a commercial business environment, exploring how business and law impact on one another and developing your expertise in the field. At Bradford we place your future employability at the heart of our teaching. Teaching styles and assessment methods combine the traditional with the modern to ensure that when you graduate you have developed both the academic and practical skills to thrive in the modern legal world. Our Legal Advice Clinic allows you to engage in giving legal advice in a real world setting, to members of the public and will provide you with experience of social justice in operation, alongside your studies. We are one of only nine UK Universities to have international membership of the International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP), giving our students links to 280 universities in 41 worldwide destinations. Our students study alongside leading business professionals and benefit from networking with 30, 000 high calibre alumni worldwide.

We get to know our students and encourage a sense of community and belonging, and the School of Law recognise exceptional student achievements and each year offer a number of annual prizes. Our LLBs are Qualifying Law Degrees accredited by the Professional Bodies, and are therefore your first step into a career as a solicitor or barrister. Once you have completed your legal knowledge and skills training, you will be eligible for exemption from the academic stages of training and be able to continue to the postgraduate study and practical-based training stages needed to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. Many of our law graduates go on to develop careers within the legal sector, furthering their study and training needed to become practising solicitors and barristers. An LLB does not limit you to just careers in the field of law. The knowledge and skills you develop are readily transferable to a wide range of professions, including business, journalism, teaching, politics, accounting, PR and marketing.

The societies are really welcoming! The campus is compact and really fun! As for the city, new student pubs are sprouting up everywhere and there's loads of great films to see at the BIFF every year,. It may not be the most glam city in the country, but there’s plenty to see and do in Bradford and it’s great for students.

    I have found that being at a slightly smaller university means that I receive a better learning experience. I know all of my lecturers on a first name basis, and most of them know me. It is easy to be involved, both with the course and with sports and societies and I feel like the university has prepared me well for getting a good job in my field.

    The university of Bradford is a very diverse and vibrant place where everything is at one place and it is easy to get lost in all the activities that are available as there is just so much to do. The academics are very supportive and due to fairly small university everyone can get to know each other and there is always somebody who can support and help with any issues arising. Based on my experience I would recommend university of Bradford to anyone!
