Types of law degrees

At University you can study a wide range of different types of law degrees. Whichever type of law degree course you choose to study you should ensure that it is a Qualifying Law Degree and that it covers the foundation subjects of law.

The LLB Law degree

Perhaps the most frequently studied types of law degrees is the LLB Law degree. A good LLB law degree will include the study of the seven foundation subjects of a Qualifying Law Degree but it will also allow you the opportunity to pursue individual interest through the provision of a range of optional modules. These optional modules plus your dissertation and other extended pieces of work should allow a degree of specialisation in an area of law.

Types of law degrees with another subject

In addition to the specialist LLB Law degree, Bangor Law School also offers a range of 'Law with' degrees. These are also qualifying law degrees but offer a broader field of study as they may combine law with Business, languages, Criminology and a range of subjects.
