Students who study law in the UK will learn the content of law and legal analysis, gaining experience in the areas of mooting, arguing and negotiation.

Almost all UK law courses allow students the option of taking a year’s professional placement at a firm, while overseas study is also available. Students can also choose to combine Law with other subjects such as business, politics or journalism. All LLB programs at UK universities are formally accredited by the Law Society of England and Wales and the Bar Council of England and Wales as qualifying law.
A Law degree will open up many different career options, and not only in the legal professions. In addition to traditional roles such as solicitors and barristers, Law graduates can use their qualifications to find positions in journalism, business, criminology and many more diverse fields. After completing an undergraduate Law degree, many students opt to study a Masters of Laws postgraduate degree.
