LLB in Law 2 (Full Time)

Bangor University

Bachelor Degree , Law

Course Description

Law affects all of our lives and the knowledge of law increases our understanding of the society and the world in which we live. These course programmes provide a liberal education in Law, or in Law combined with another discipline, to promote such an awareness and to allow those who so wish to progress to careers in the legal professions.

Bangor University is recognised as a qualifying law degree provider by the Bar Standards Board and this degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

This 2 year undergraduate programme is especially designed for people who have previously undertaken higher education and wish to study for a bachelor degree in Law. This may include graduates who have successfully completed an honours degree in another subject at Bangor or another accredited institution, or individuals with equivalent professional experience.

As this is a qualifying law degree, on a successful completion of the 2 year programme, LLB graduates may progress onto a Legal Practice Course (LPC) to become a solicitor or onto BPTC training to become a barrister.

In each academic year, students will undertake modules to the value of 120 credits in a combination of law courses addressing the issues of Public Law, Private Law and Property Law.

The first year involves the study of 6 compulsory double-modules (20 credits each) in law across Semesters 1 and 2. The second year will also consist of four compulsory double-modules and two optional modules from an approved list of modules according to students’ individual interests.

Assessment Methods

Each module is assessed separately by means of course work and end of module examination. In Year 1, course work will account for 25% and examinations for 75% of the final mark, whilst in Year 2 and 3, course work will normally account for 33% and examinations for 67% of the final mark. The pass mark in all assessment is 40%.

Second year and final year grades will both contribute to the final degree classification. At the end of Year 3, your final degree classification depends on your overall mark: a weighted average of your Year 2 average mark (one-third weighting) and your Year 3 average mark (two-thirds weighting).

Your final degree classification is determined by your overall mark.
