Program Overview

Whether you’re seeking to forge a career as a solicitor, barrister, costs lawyer, legal executive or conveyancer, or aspire to work in sectors such as business management, the civil service, politics, HR or finance, our LLB (Hons) Law is an excellent choice.

Our experienced team will guide you as you explore the sources of the law in England and Wales, how it is made and developed, the institutions within which that law is administered, and the personnel who practice law. You’ll study the law as it regulates the functions of the state, the relations between private individuals, and the ownership and control of land and other property. You’ll also be able to choose additional legal areas that are of interest to you or your career aspirations.

We’ll support you to develop the skills required to practice law; for example, you’ll be expected to take part in mooting debates (a mock legal hearing where points of law are argued) in our purpose-built courtroom. We’ll challenge you to develop sought-after critical reasoning, communication and advocacy skills, along with valuable transferable skills such as analytical thinking, practical problem-solving, presentation, negotiation skills and teamwork. Overall, our dedicated team are focused on helping you gain the skills employers value along with a deep and critical understanding of the law.

Highlights

  • Your study will be based on the requirements defined by the Joint Academic Stage Board (JASB) and the Legal Training Review (LETR), which represents the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the Bar Standards Board (BSB) and the Chartered Institute for Legal Executives (CILEx) for the initial or academic stage of training to practise in the legal profession. The JASB is responsible for making sure that all Qualifying Law Degrees meet a nationally recognised standard. At Bolton, we are gratified that our law degree meets that high national standard.
  • The University of Bolton’s Legal Advice Centre launched in September 2019, where law students are guaranteed a work placement (of at least one semester) and can put their acquired skills into practice by assisting members of the public with their legal enquiries.
  • Few law schools have their own courtroom. Our state-of-the-art Moot Law Court gives you the opportunity to apply your academic and forensic skills to practical situations in front of your peers.
  • We have our own dedicated Law library, as well as a specialised law librarian. Online legal database resources are available via Lexis Library and Westlaw and we use the virtual learning environment, Moodle, to create an interactive learning environment.
  • We maintain strong partnerships with local law firms and other legal service providers, facilitating work shadowing opportunities and regular visits by guest speakers. We also run the prestigious annual Ryder Lecture series and are home to the Centre for Contemporary Coronial Law.

Key Features

  • We offer a deep understanding of the fundamental legal principles, concepts, values, rules and techniques, establishing your knowledge and understanding of the doctrines and principles which underpin the law of England and Wales.
  • Our research active academic law staff offer you access to expertise in a range of disciplines, including alternative dispute resolution, commercial, employment, European, family, healthcare, intellectual property, international and judicial reform.
  • We’ll guide you in the use of research data, including primary sources such as legislation, EU law, case law, and secondary source materials such as government reports, white and green papers, and refereed journal articles.
  • You’ll be encouraged to gain practical experience of presentation, argument and applying legal method skills as you take part in mock interviews, moot debates and negotiations.
  • We recommend that you join the University of Bolton’s Student Law Society, which offers access to work placement opportunities, presentation skills development sessions and court trips.
