Course Information

Perhaps you would like to study Law, but you want to complete your studies in two years, instead of the traditional three? Then our LLB Accelerated degree is the course for you. If you opt to study on our accelerated route, you will fast track your studies by starting in September and then study over two years including throughout the summer. This means that you not only enter the jobs market quicker, but you have potential to save on living costs during your studies.

The programme offers a unique approach to teaching and learning, adopting a flipped classroom model which increases flexibility by providing a permanent online resource to support you and encourage your learning journey. By studying with us, you'll be able to develop skills such as legal drafting (contractual clauses, defence statements), and advocacy (interim and junction applications) alongside developing your knowledge in the foundations of law. This course will provide you with an excellent foundation to pursue a legal career.

We offer a range of optional modules to ensure that our course is tailored to your needs and interests. For example, for our Canadian students, we have also developed optional modules in Canadian Constitutional Law and Canadian Criminal Law. These modules will enable you to gain a critical understanding of aspects of Canadian Law, helping to prepare you for the Canadian National Committee on Accreditation exams.

  • Fast track your career by entering the jobs market earlier than your peers
  • Ideal programme if you are looking to change careers and require an LLB degree
  • Demonstrate to employers your ability to manage and work under pressure by completing your law degree within 2 years

Career Opportunity

Many of our graduates who have entered the legal professional are now in private practice or employed in such fields as industry, local government, or the Crown Prosecution Service. Of those who choose not to enter the legal profession, many have gone on to pursue higher degrees or enter other fields of employment such as personnel or management training programmes, the police, accountancy, teaching, local government and journalism.

We are particularly proud of our alumnus Grace Ononiwu OBE who is the Chief Crown Prosecutor for the West Midlands.
