School of Law

Undergraduate Courses


We offer a number of different degree programmes for the LLB as well as BA degrees in Law where students take core legal subjects together with some modules in non-law subjects.

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 much 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.

We also offer the opportunity to apply to spend a year abroad at a Universitas 21 university with our LLB and BA Law degree programmes. The practice is to transfer a select number of students who have successfully completed their first year of study on either the LLB Law or the BA Law degree courses. 

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.

How to apply

If you're applying for admission to a full-time first degree course (even if you already hold a degree), you must apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Find out more about the process on our Applying webpages.
