LL.B. comes from the Latin – Legum Baccalaureus- Bachelor of Laws. A highly focused discipline, law examines how groups and individuals regulate their relationships.

Shaping your career

The programme aims to develop learner’s critical capabilities to the fullest, to enhance their communication skills and capacities to develop their clinical skills. At the outset graduating with the LL.B. degree will prepare you to undertake the Law Society of Ireland’s entrance examination. Success in the five entrance exams enables you to complete the Honorable Society of King’s Inns Barrister at Law degree in just one year. For those wishing to pursue postgraduate opportunities, the LL.B. provides a foundation for a Masters programme in Law (LL.M.).

The LL.B. Degree also lends itself to stimulating career opportunities across a range of areas including Journalism, Media, Finance. Public Administration, Industry and Commerce.

It has been crafted and refined by the seasoned input of distinguished academics and professionals as well as the College’s expert full-time and associate lecturing staff. The degree combines academic depth with legal training to industry standards to provide students with a solid foundation for their future careers. Providing all the core modules required for the entrance examinations for both The Law Society of Ireland and The Honorable Society of King’s Inns, the LL.B. degree programme combines written coursework with an end of semester module. Full-time and part-time courses both run from September to May.

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 parttime degree consists of 8-10 weekly lecture hours over 2-3 evenings.

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.
