Our degree programmes (LLB and BA) may be taken as Qualifying Law Degrees (excluding Politics, Philosophy & Law). If you intend to become a solicitor or barrister, a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) will exempt you from further study before you enter the vocational stage of professional training. In order to attain a QLD you must pass modules in subjects specified as the 'foundations of legal knowledge' by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board.
Currently, a ‘qualifying’ Law degree means that you will have passed the first (academic) stage of training to enter the legal profession as a barrister or solicitor. The process by which a student qualifies as a solicitor in England and Wales is due to change in 2021. We are launching our new curriculum to coincide with these changes, building on our international reputation for teaching law ‘in context’ and providing what we believe to be the best possible preparation for our students to succeed if they choose to pursue a legal career. Consequently, we are making some exciting changes to our degrees for 2021 entry. The core and optional modules are currently undergoing approval through the University’s rigorous academic processes. As changes are approved, they will be updated on these webpages. It is therefore very important that you check this webpage for the latest information before you apply and prior to accepting an offer. Find out more about the changes.
