Course Summary:
**Overview** If you're interested in law and you're curious about foreign policy and international thought, this LLB (Hons) Law with International Relations degree course will match your interests. The course is a qualifying law degree (QLD), which means it gives you the core legal knowledge to progress to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to train as a solicitor or barrister. In your final year, you can also choose to take the CILEx Graduate fast-track diploma. This allows you to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive following further professional experience. As well as core legal subjects, you’ll get to choose from various optional modules to suit your own interests. These currently include Commercial Law, Employment Law and Jurisprudence. After the course, you could continue your legal training or take up employment in areas such as finance, commerce, recruitment or the public sector. You could also continue your studies on a Master’s degree. **Professional accreditations** This course is professionally accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the Bar Standards Board and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). These accreditations show that the course gives you the skills and knowledge you need to complete the undergraduate portion of your academic training as a solicitor, barrister or legal executive. This degree course is a qualifying law degree which means you're able to move straight to solicitors' professional examinations (LPC) without the need for an extra year of study. **What you'll experience** On this course, you can: * Bring what you learn to life in mock trials in our replica of a crown court, complete with dock, witness box, public gallery, jury room and interview room * Use your skills advising members of the public on a variety of aspects of the law, by working in one of our community settings * Opt for the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma (Level 6 Diploma in Legal Practice) in your final year, which allows you to qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer when you get further experience after the course * Join our student law society and take part in team competitions such as negotiation and mooting * Develop your understanding of global affairs and foreign political systems **Careers and opportunities** After the course, you could progress to a graduate training scheme, go straight into employment in the private, public or voluntary sector, or continue your studies. If you chose a career in law, you can do the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) or Legal Practice Course (LPC), which are the traditional routes to becoming a barrister or solicitor. If you take the CILEx Graduate Fast-track Diploma module in your final year, you can work as legal executive or paralegal when you graduate and become a Chartered Legal Executive lawyer following 3 years of qualifying employment. This gives you similar career opportunities to barristers and solicitors. **What can you do with a Law with International Relations degree?** You could work in areas such as: * government * international organisations and multinational corporations * non-governmental organisations * pressure groups * voluntary organisations * policy research * the media **What jobs can you do with a Law with International Relations degree?** Roles our graduates have taken on include: * designated detention officer * paralegal * business development executive * environmental crime officer * trainee probation officer * firearms licensing operator administrator After you leave the University, you can get help, advice and support for up to 5 years from our Careers and Employability service as you advance in your career.

There’s a lot to love in Pompey, a city geared towards students with loads of great bars, pubs, and shops. The nightlife is incredible, loads of student nights on and everyone is up for it. The main place to go out is the strip of clubs by the Guildhall, although there are lots of little places if you seek them out. The uni is also amazingly supportive, with great facilities and the Purple Door offering great careers support for all students, and the SU is also really helpful as well as serving amazing drinks and food.

    Love Portsmouth uni so much! Soo glad I went here as it’s perfect for me. It’s a city but not too big as you can literally walk anywhere, buses really aren’t necessary! Always close to the beach and shopping places too. Love my tutors and friends I’ve made and the societies are so fun to join and meet new people at.

    Overall my university experience has been great and I would highly recommend Portsmouth due to the amount of investment they’re putting into it as it climbs the tables.
