Overview

LL.B. comes from the Latin – Legum Baccalaureus- Bachelor of Laws. A highly focused discipline, law examines how groups and individuals regulate their relationships. The course is available both full-time and part-time and runs from September to May. While typically three years in duration, those who study law part time also have the flexibility to complete the programme over four or five years, depending on their personal circumstances. Comprehensive, rigorous and enduring, the LL.B. (Hons) in Law is the perfect grounding for your legal career. 

The fulltime degree consists of up to 16 lecture hours per week. Extra time is allocated to assignment work and to the vital independent study that shapes attitude, deepens understanding, and provides students with practical exposure to problem-solving. The evening part time degree consists of 8-10 weekly lecture hours over 2-3 evenings.
