Graduate Destinations

Our degrees have been carefully designed to evolve with the ever-changing legal landscape, and to equip students with the legal knowledge and skills demanded by an increasingly globalised industry. This means that our graduates go on to a number of destinations, including employment, further study, legal training and academia.

Qualifying Law Degrees

All of our undergraduate LLB degree schemes are Qualifying Law Degrees, which denotes they are approved by the Law Society of England and Wales and recognised for entry onto professional vocational training required to become a Solicitor or Barrister. Our Postgraduate programmes prepare students for careers with law firms, international organisations, local government, teaching and research. The academic experience offered by the School is enriched by a programme of activities designed to encourage students to accelerate their personal development and to cultivate skills that will give them an edge in the increasingly competitive job market.
