About this course

If you want a career in the legal profession but studied another subject for your first degree, our accelerated LLB is the ideal choice for you. It allows you to fast track your learning; fitting the modules needed to complete a qualifying law degree into just 2 years of study. When you graduate, you'll be ready to train to become a solicitor or barrister.

Designed for graduates from a wide range of disciplines, our intensive accelerated LLB programme offers you the possibility of a qualifying law degree in just 2 years. 

You'll become proficient in all the subjects required for a qualifying law degree and have the opportunity to develop an area of interest through extended study for your dissertation. 

Our accelerated LLB programme will give you in-depth legal knowledge together with strong critical thinking and communication skills. As you would expect from a Russell Group university, you'll be taught by active researchers who bring the latest legal developments to the curriculum. 

As part of your degree you can:

  • gain work experience alongside legal professionals by advising students at the Law Clinic
  • engage with our academic research groups including the Stefan Cross Centre for Women, Equality and Law, and the Institute of Maritime Law
  • benefit from advice from our alumni about your future legal career options during our unique careers and employability skills programmes
  • take part in a range of competitions to enhance your skills, including the Clyde & Co Team Building Challenge, and also regional, national and international mooting and negotiation competitions

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).


“I enjoy discovering the different parts of law that I love the most, and discovering things about myself and what my drive is. Studying law pushes me out of my comfort zone and makes me think outside of the box.”
Doreen Kwei, 2018 graduate
