What are LLB Law Degrees?

The LLB degree is probably the most common type of undergraduate law degree, and is studied by undergraduates seeking to practice in law as well as those students who eventually enter into other non-law related professions. LLB degrees are well regarded as rigorous degrees that train graduates for a wide range of career opportunities.

Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE)

Do you want to become a Solicitor? If so you'll need to undertake the Solicitors Qualifying Exam. All Bangor’s LLB degrees are ‘SQE facing’, meaning that our degrees contain a pathway that will allow you to study the material tested on the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exam (‘SQE’).

What is Mooting?

If you’re looking to study Law, you may have heard about mooting, but do you know what mooting is? Essentially mooting is a mock trial where two sides argue a point of law in front of an acting judge. The judge will then decide who the winner is once they’ve heard presentations from both sides.  

If you’re thinking of becoming a solicitor or barrister mooting is an important skill to have. Studying LLB Law at Bangor allows you the opportunity to practice your mooting in our on-campus mock courtroom.

The influence that Bangor had upon both my career and life cannot be overestimated. The way teaching was delivered at Bangor, combined with the excellent academic and pastoral support I received, allowed me to flourish academically and lead to me obtaining a First-Class degree.
