LLB (Hons) Law with Foundation Year – Online

Course Overview

This 4-year online law degree, known as an LLB or Bachelor of Laws, is equivalent to a BA or BSc. This course is for students interested in Law as a subject, whether they wish to become a solicitor, barrister, or in-house lawyer; a Law degree is widely respected. As a qualifying law degree (QLD), this course is essential if you are considering a career as a solicitor or a barrister, as it allows you to continue to move onto the next stage of training to enter the legal profession: The BPTC for barristers or the LPC/SQE for solicitors.
