Durham Law School

The LLB Law Degree

The LLB degree is a highly flexible three-year, full-time course. There are approximately 200 students on each year of the LLB. While providing a solid grounding in the main areas of English law, and the skills required in legal research and practice, it also allows for individual specialisation through a variety of optional modules offered by Durham Law School and other Departments in the University.

The degree has been approved as a qualifying law degree by the Law Society and the Bar Council of England and Wales.

Undergraduate modules are taught through a combination of lectures, small group tutorials, larger group seminars and private study. Students are assessed by a mixture of examinations and written assessment methods.
