Our LLB Law (Hons) course will focus on the ‘foundations of legal knowledge’ in years one and two and then offers you the opportunity to specialise in a specific area of law in your final year. These specialist areas include Business Law, Trade and Finance Law, International Law, Criminal Law and Justice, and Social Justice, as well as an option to pursue a pathway giving a broader approach to legal study, General Law. This course structure gives you the chance to gain a grounding in crucial legal knowledge, coupled with specialist insight– allowing you the opportunity, upon successful completion, to gain sector relevant knowledge that can help differentiate you in the employment market.
Our learning facilities, which include a mock court room known as the Moot Room, our teaching expertise and hands-on approach aim to provide you with the confidence and knowledge to explore legal topics and issues.

With over 50 years’ experience of teaching law, Coventry University’s Law LLB (Hons) degree is designed for potential career options in law, but is equally suitable if you wish to pursue a potential future career in business.
From 2021, to become a Solicitor and/or Barrister in England and Wales you must either have an undergraduate degree, or equivalent experience (for example, by completing a degree level apprenticeship). Importantly, a Coventry undergraduate law degree should prepare candidates for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination Stage 1 test, as required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in order to become a Solicitor, and for the Academic pathway, as required by the Bar Standards Board in order to become a Barrister. Please note that both routes/pathways to qualification are subject to competitive application, criteria, availability, meeting any applicable visa requirements and additional costs may apply.
