So, why study for your LLB law here at Hertfordshire? Well alongside a Gold rating for our teaching, we have a dedicated Law School, incredible facilities and an innovative teaching team of practising lawyers and solicitors. We’ve shaped our law degree around a skills-based competency framework that is geared towards the demands of today’s legal profession. This will kickstart your career with exceptional skills, experience and opportunities.
You’ll study in our fantastic Law Building, practise your skills in our replica Crown Court and solve real problems for the local community in our very own pro-bono law clinic. Get stuck into our huge range of co-curricular activities and you’ll also future proof your degree with skills and qualifications in areas like mooting, trial advocacy and client interviewing.
As well as exploring the fundamentals of law, you’ll explore contemporary issues as diverse as data protection, human rights, terrorism and cybercrime. We use an innovative flipped-classroom model that lets you watch lectures online, from home, before coming to seminars to tackle the issues in-depth with your tutors. It’s a unique approach that gives you flexibility, structure and a permanent online resource you can dive into – anytime, anywhere.
