In a world where degrees and degree providers are proliferating, the University of London LLB offers the security of an internationally recognized qualification. The University of London was the first university to offer a degree in English law, in the 1890s – and that degree was made available to International Programmes students from the start. The high reputation of our LLB has been maintained because International Programmes students are marked to the same high standards as campus-based students. Upon graduation you will join a distinguished group of lawyers, solicitors, barristers and judges from around the world who have obtained their law degree through the University of London
Seeking to become a legal practitioner is not the only reason for studying for a legal qualification. You might already be working in a law-related field – in the police force or social work, for example – and want to enhance your legal knowledge and professional standing. Your career path might lie in the commercial or financial professions, where legal qualifications are highly valued not only for a specific knowledge of law but also because of the transferable skills that come from the study of law such as creating reasoned arguments and problem-solving.
