Senior Status Law LLB
The New College of the Humanities in London, England offers an accelerated two-year Qualifying Law Degree LLB programme, as well as scholarships which cover half of all tuition fees for Canadian students.
What is the Senior Status Law LLB?
The Senior Status nature of the course is recognition of your first undergraduate degree and that having already completed three or four years at undergraduate-level, you are a more experienced and mature student.
The LLB is a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) covering all of the Law Society and Bar Standards Board required areas of study to permit progression onto the professional training courses for qualification as a Solicitor or Barrister.
Students learn how laws are formed and how the legal system is structured, together with studying areas such as the law that regulates government, contracts, crime, ownership of land, and the law of the European Union. In addition to the eight core modules that are essential for the QLD status, students take one further law module in either Civil & Criminal Procedure or Company Law.
