Newcastle Law School’s Law LLB Honours degree offers a challenging, intellectually stimulating and rewarding undergraduate experience. It produces competitive, sought after graduates, and provides an invaluable platform from which our graduates are able to pursue the career of their choice.

The aims of the LLB degree programme are:

  • To deliver a rigorous liberal education in the discipline of law informed by scholarship and research;
  • To enable students to develop an understanding of the nature of law and the theoretical and multi-disciplinary influences on its development;
  • To develop students’ analytical, problem-solving and critical skills in relation to how law is made, interpreted, applied and developed;
  • To provide students with opportunities to study a range of specialist law modules often linked to specific research interests of teaching staff, approved non-law modules and, where appropriate, to engage in extended research;
  • To develop intellectual and key transferable skills to equip students for future learning and employment;
  • To produce graduates who are equipped for training and employment in the legal professions and in other fields of employment or to undertake postgraduate study

Students registered for the 3 year LLB degree at Newcastle Law School have the option during their first year of study to consider switching to a 4 year degree instead either by:

  • Studying Abroad for a year through the European Legal Studies (ELS) or International Legal Studies (ILS) LLB streams; or through the
  • Career Placement Year - this enables students to add a career placement year to their LLB degree if they wish to work for a year between Stages 2 and 3.
