Overview

With a passion for justice, analysis, research, and a law degree from Coventry you could be on track for a career as a successful lawyer.

A successful lawyer has the ability to analyse a case, identify key facts, research the relevant law, identify appropriate legal strategies and communicate clearly the way forward. This course will give you the knowledge and expertise to do just that.

Accredited by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board, it could set you on the path towards qualifying as a solicitor or barrister, but equally can act as preliminary training for a range of other careers, recognised by employers as providing the transferrable professional skills they demand.

Why Coventry University?

Accreditation and Professional Recognition

This course is accredited and recognised by the following bodies:

Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)

All our LLB courses are accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board. Our LLB Law is a Qualifying Law Degree. This status means that graduation from the programme exempts you from the Common Professional Examination (CPE), the initial stage of professional qualification as a solicitor or barrister for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This shortens your professional training, should you wish to practise in England and Wales, by one year.

What our alumni say

I decided to take a placement year after initially applying for a three-month internship following the advice of my lecturer. At CPS, I primarily assisted a blind prosecutor during file preparation and also whilst in court. During this time at court, I was able to develop key skills in problem-solving and gained experience of liaising with various stakeholders, such as court staff and the defence.

I was often allocated tasks by the prosecutor, which allowed me to push myself. With this also came a certain level of responsibility, as I was handling sensitive and confidential information, in addition to using my own initiative. A key example was interviewing hostile and emotional witnesses at times, I also disclosed CPS material to the defence and explained bench decisions to witnesses.”

Shannon Rixon, Law (Hons) LLB, spent placement year with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), graduated 2015 with first class honours, now Paralegal at Feldon Dunsmore Solicitors.

Course information

All qualifying law degrees are required to cover the foundations of legal knowledge, which will be studied during the first two years. In the final year, however, you will be able to select from a wide range of optional subjects based upon the expertise within our School, which we aim to reflect a variety of personal interests or career aspirations, such as Company Law, Employment Law, Family and Child Law, International Criminal Law, International Commercial Law, Public International Law and Intellectual Property Law.

The curriculum is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of legal doctrines, concepts, principles, rules and values in the core areas of law, as well as detailed knowledge of sources of law, how law is made and developed and an understanding of the procedures and rules of the legal system and the main institutions of the system.

You will have the opportunity to gain an appreciation of the context in which law operates, developing a critical perspective of the law and legal institutions, understanding the dynamic nature of the law, of its uncertainty, the need for reform and proposals for law reform.

Students on all of the LLB courses are required to undertake topics specifically designed to enhance their academic, personal and professional skills, as well as their career management.

Our active Law School provides lots of opportunities for extra-curricular activities, including specialist guest lectures, with recent talks from the writer and poet Professor Benjamin Zephaniah and ‘People's Lawyer and People's Poet’, Barrister Dave Neita, who spoke about transitional law and restorative justice in film. We also host regular networking events to enable you to meet representatives from local firms, as well as representatives from a variety of local organisations who sit on our Industry Advisory Board. They regularly review our course content, so that we can update it to reflect the new developments and requirements of the profession and business.

We have recently launched a series of professional events, including a new initiative to promote internationalisation – ‘Careers in Law: Global Options and Local Opportunities’ – which featured 15 senior legal practitioners from across the UK, including two QCs. In addition, we successfully launched the first ‘Oil, Gas, Energy and Sustainability Law Converzacione 2016’, which was streamed live to the University of the West Indies (UWI) Law Faculty as an Online International Learning (OIL) initiative. With an inaugural lecture on ‘Contemporary Policy Issues for New and Emerging Oil and Gas Producers’, the event benefited from a range of prestigious speakers, including: the Head of Safety and Operational Risk, Competency and Capability Development for The BP Group; the Economic Adviser in Natural Resources at the Commonwealth Secretariat; and the Legal Counsel, Maritime Law, at the Commonwealth Secretariat.

Established student exchange links with universities across Europe.

Our main study themes are:

  • Contract Law: You will be introduced to contractual obligations under the common law, as affected by statute. We examine contract formation, resulting obligations, vitiating factors, performance, breach and remedies. You will gain an understanding of the role of contract law with an appreciation of contract law in practice and the factors that have influenced its development, as well as those that may affect its future direction.

  • Tort Law: Tort Law involves remedies which facilitate the resolution of civil disputes between individuals. These remedies include resolutions such as damages, which compensate the individual for the harm caused. Cases are brought by one individual against another and usually involve a wrongfully caused harm. We will look at areas such as negligence, nuisance and occupier, employer and product liability. We also examine any defences that may be applicable to tortfeasors and any remedies available to compensate victims.

  • Criminal Law: Criminal Law involves wrongs, or prohibited conduct, consequences or states of affairs, which the State is responsible for prosecuting on behalf of the individuals involved. It generally consists of punishing individuals for their wrongful actions and seeks to protect personal or proprietary rights of individuals. You will become acquainted with the principles upon which a person's responsibility under criminal law will be assessed, analysing the nature of criminal offences and developing an appreciation of the circumstances in which people are absolved of responsibility under the law.

  • Law of the European Union: European Union (EU) Law plays an important role in almost all aspects of both law and individuals’ daily lives. You will learn about the sources of EU law and their status within our own legal order, studying the institutional framework of the EU and its legal basis. You will also learn about the substantive rules which form the cornerstone of the single market, in particular the free movement of goods, services, capital, and services, together with the customs union and competition law.

  • Constitutional and Administrative Law: We examine Parliament, the Government and the courts: the powers that they exercise, how they are controlled, how they relate to each other and how they relate to the individual. We will consider the various fundamental public law principles that underpin the constitution, the principal institutions of the State and how these institutions interact and relate to one another and to the individual, including consideration of how human rights are protected in the United Kingdom. Administrative law focuses specifically on the law relating to the government and how its powers are controlled through judicial review.

  • Property Law: Property Law is a study of the rights and interests affecting land, such as a leasehold interest in a freehold. We will trace the development of our land law from 1066 to the modern system of land registration and study the acquisition of rights in land by informal means, such as the use of an implied trust to establish rights over land in favour of a non-owner.

  • Equity and Trusts: You will be introduced to the equitable principles governing the creation and administration of express private and public trusts. We examine the reasons for creating trusts in the contemporary social and economic context and the requirements for such creation, enabling you to distinguish between the trust concept and other related concepts. We focus on the trust concept and, in particular, the contemporary role in commercial contexts, as well as its traditional functions, in relation to family property.

  • English Legal System: Provides a sound knowledge of the English legal system and its operation, including civil and criminal procedure. It is designed to develop a critical awareness of the legal system, its strengths and shortcomings. In particular, we look at the issues of the day confronting the legal system and the law in general, including aspects of human rights law. You will be encouraged to discover, interpret and apply legal rules.

This course can be studied over three years of full-time or five to six years of part-time study. Students also have the option to spend a year studying abroad or on work placement. 

Modules are normally delivered through large group lectures and seminars of around 15 students. These seminars are interactive and may involve hypothetical problems, case studies and the analysis of more theoretical issues. In addition, your personal tutor will monitor your progress and will be available for advice.

A qualifying law degree is a law degree with Honours which is accepted by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board as satisfying the academic stage of legal education. A law degree with Honours will only be accepted as a qualifying law degree where the student has passed the assessments in the ‘Foundations of Legal Knowledge’, namely Contract Law, Tort Law, Criminal Law, Equity and Trusts, European Union Law, Property Law and Public Law (including Constitutional, Administrative Law and Human Rights).

Teaching methods include:
lectures and seminars.

Course assessment has been designed to meet the recommendations and requirements of the two relevant professional bodies. Methods vary and will include examinations, individual coursework, online tests, multiple choice assessments, group presentations, reflective reports, practical legal skills exercises.

An estimated percentage breakdown of your final grade assessment is as follows:

  • Formal examinations 65%
  • Coursework, tests, essays 20%
  • Practical or project work 5%
  • Group work etc. 5%
  • Presentations, posters 5%

In order to achieve the award of Bachelor of Arts (Honours), a student must satisfy the University requirements of 360 credits. A student who does not wish to progress to a subsequent year of study may apply for an intermediate award of Diploma of Higher Education if they pass a minimum of 240 credits. A Certificate of Higher Education may be awarded to a student with minimum of 120 credits.

65% assessed by exams

On successful completion, you should be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of a wide range of legal concepts, values, principles and rules of English law. This includes: relevant European law; the major legal institutions, procedures and sources of English law and European Union law; the law in an economic, social and philosophical context; legal and professional ethics.
  • Rank issues in terms of relevance and importance within unfamiliar arguments in the light of established law.
  • Bring together and present in a coherent, integrated fashion, materials from primary and secondary sources, offering an accurate summary of the current state of doctrinal and policy debate in any area of law.
  • Make an informed and reasoned judgement on standard arguments in the areas of law in question.
  • Apply your legal knowledge to complex situations, including hypothetical problem questions, to recognise potential alternative conclusions and to provide supporting reasons.
  • Identify the principal controversial issues in areas of law not previously studied.Independently locate a wide range of legal materials and non-legal sources, read and discuss legal materials written in technical and complex language and clearly attribute the work of others.

In a typical teaching week you will have up to 14 ‘contact’ hours of teaching. This generally breaks down as:

  • Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 1 hour of tutorials each week.
  • Medium group teaching: 4 hours of practical classes, workshops or seminars each week.
  • Large group teaching: 9 hours of lectures each week.

In addition, you will be expected to undertake a further 25 hours of self-directed studying and revising in your own time, including some guided study using handouts, online activities etc.

We recognise the difference that both work and an international experience can make to your future career. All of our undergraduate courses are designed to enable you to take an additional optional year either on placement in the UK or abroad or studying abroad.

From your first day in the Law School, we will offer you advice and guidance to help you achieve a global experience. The Law School has particularly strong links with the South West University of Politics and Law (SWUPL) in Chonqing, China and the University of Central Florida in the USA. We have also established links with the Universities of Liege in Belgium, Strasbourg in France (French speaking), Castellon and Leon in Spain (Spanish speaking), The Hague in the Netherlands, Orebro in Sweden, Pecs in Hungary (where courses are taught in English) and the Universities of Kiel and Rostock in Germany (German Speaking).

We offer a range of optional field trips to enable you to experience the legal systems of different countries, which has previously included the Instituto Superior de la Carrera ISC in Buenos Aires, Argentina and the University of the West Indies in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. We also host live seminars with students abroad via web link, provide opportunities to attend summer schools in the US.

Throughout the course, staff will introduce comparative international elements and issues; a number of final year options are specifically international in focus including modules covering international commercial law, international public law and international criminal law.

Unconditional offers

We want to recruit the best students to Coventry and having assessed applicants' past, current and predicted performance and commitment to the course we feel that it is appropriate to reward consistently high-achieving students with an unconditional offer from a top university. It is a commitment from us with regard to an applicants’ potential as an excellent undergraduate and we hope that this will encourage such applicants to join the Coventry community.

Personal statements and references will also be taken into account and, for some degree courses, an interview will form part of the assessment. The criteria for unconditional offers will vary across the University as entry requirements for specific courses differ and not all degree courses will be taking part in the Scheme. The unconditional offer will be confirmed once a selected applicant has made Coventry their firm choice.

Coventry University has assessed that you are capable of achieving excellent grades and we have demonstrated this belief by making you an unconditional offer. This is our commitment to you so then we ask that you reciprocate this commitment by selecting us as your ‘firm’ choice and activating your unconditional offer.

We will consider other qualifications for a pre-result unconditional offer providing that you have an appropriate proven performance at GCSE (or equivalent) level and predicted grades in line with grades that we expect to see at A-level. Other qualifications that we may consider for a pre-result unconditional offer include: The International Baccalaureate Diploma, BTEC Level 3 qualifications, Cambridge Pre-U and combinations of qualifications (e.g. BTECS plus A-levels).

An unconditional offer is what it says it is. So, if you don’t meet your predictions then your place at Coventry is still guaranteed. However, we would hope and expect that you continue to work hard to make the most of your potential and be best prepared to study at university level.

We can’t but our experience over the years has shown us that students like you with a track record of high grades and excellent predictions are very likely to achieve those grades. Our assessment takes into account all elements of your application to allow us to take a holistic view of your potential. There is still the opportunity to gain one of the Coventry University Scholarships if you achieve the required grades so there is a financial incentive to aim high. Unconditional offers are only made to individuals who have demonstrated their commitment so we believe their focus and determination is unlikely to waver in the final stages of their qualifications.

No, the unconditional offer is only available to those who will take up their place in 2017.

Where our graduates work

Not all law students wish to enter the legal profession as a solicitor or barrister and a Law degree can provide an excellent foundation for many other careers. Our graduates have pursued careers in local government or the professional services, as trainee accountants with top firms such as PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), heading a recruitment desk with Hays International in Hong Kong and as management trainees with large ‘blue chip’ companies.
