LLB in Law with Italian (European Experience) (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. This course provides 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.

You can combine the study of Law with a range of subjects. Approximately two-thirds of the curriculum will focus on Law and one-third on the other subject. All are LLB degrees and all have been accredited by the Law Society and the Bar Council as Qualifying Law Degrees (QLD). This status denotes that Bangor LLB graduates have completed the academic stage of training for the legal professions in England and Wales, and may enter directly onto Legal Practice Courses (LPC) to become solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to become barristers.

In the Law with French/German/Italian or Spanish degree, the European language may be studied from beginner and intermediate level when combined with Law.

Lawyers with additional linguistic skills are in high demand. Recognising this, we have developed a suite of programmes combining Law with a European Language enabling you to undertake a 4-year programme combining the study of a European Language with a Qualifying Law Degree. The language may be studied from beginners and intermediate level when combined with Law.

Studying Law with a European Language enables you to develop linguistic skills and knowledge of continental legal systems to meet the needs of legal practice within the European Union. These schemes last for four years, including a whole year abroad in the third year studying law and developing language proficiency at a leading university in Europe.
