Your Qualifying Law degree will enable you to progress to the vocational stage of lawyer’s training, to qualify as either a solicitor or barrister. This original and innovative course has been designed in consultation with senior managers to give you both a theoretical and practical experience. We are one of only a few universities across the country which offers a dual qualification: an LLB and Membership of the National Association of Licensed Paralegals (provided you choose specific module options), which means you graduate with a GradNALP in addition to your LLB enjoying Paralegal status.

Through our strong links with the local community, Citizens Advice, and local courts, you will have the opportunity to act as a Community Legal Companion for unrepresented parties at court. This is an excellent opportunity for you to gain hands-on work experience in a legal setting.
