Our degree courses include the LLB and Senior Status LLB, as well as a variety of BA degrees which offer you the opportunity to combine core legal subjects with some modules in non-law areas.
Teaching is primarily by lecture and tutorial class, but some modules are taught by discussion groups and seminars. Students can also take part in our Skillegal Programme, which is a series of workshops on skills such as presentation, communication and negotiation.
Our graduates are highly sought after by employers and retain strong affection for the school and University. We are confident that you will enjoy studying law and experiencing university life here at Nottingham.

We also have a variety of study abroad options. Students on the BA or LLB Law degree courses can apply to transfer to one of our four-year law degree programmes. The practice is to transfer a select number of students who have successfully completed their first year of study. If you are successful, you will spend your third year studying at an overseas university. The courses available are:
Qualifying for professional practice
The LLB Law, BA Law and (if appropriate optional modules are selected) the BA Law 'with' degrees are Qualifying Law Degrees allowing exemption from the whole of the Common Professional Examination (CPE)/Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) of the Law Society and the Bar.
Graduates wishing to qualify as barristers or solicitors may proceed directly to the vocational stage of legal training - for solicitors, the Legal Practice Course, and for barristers, the Bar Professional Training Course.
A number of institutions offering these courses guarantee a place for Nottingham graduates with at least a lower second class degree.
