Law is a very versatile degree that is highly valued in all professions, and its also the first step towards a career in the legal profession.
This LLB Law course takes you a step closer towards becoming a solicitor or barrister by satisfying the initial academic stage of training that you need. On completion of your course, the next step would be to go on to the Legal Practice Course (for solicitors) or the Bar Vocational Course (for barristers).
Our LLB Law course is unusual because we give you the option of a dual qualification. We offer a mix of modules that allow you to qualify as a graduate paralegal, so you can start working in law as soon as you graduate. The option of a dual qualification is an important advantage that marks out Sunderlands course from many others.
Our teaching team has wide professional and academic experience. We are fortunate to have excellent facilities at Sunderland, including a mock courtroom where you can practice your skills in advocacy. There is nothing like standing up in court and arguing legal principles to prepare you for a legal career and at Sunderland we prepare you for it every step of the way.
This course offers a dual qualification of an LLB Law and a graduate paralegal qualification. The latter qualification depends on the modules that you choose. You can follow a commercial law route or a non-commercial route. The possibility of a dual qualification helps our graduates to stand out from others and opens up an alternative route into the legal profession.Modules on this course include: Year 1 (national level 4)

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
