Overview

Whether you have a passion for Law or Business, studying Law can help to sharpen the mind, build an analytical skillset and develop problem-solving abilities.

Our LLB Law degree will focus on the ‘foundations of legal knowledge’ in years one and two and then offers you the opportunity to specialise in a specific area of Law in your final year. These specialist pathways include Business Law, Trade and Finance Law, International Law, Criminal Law and Justice, and Social Justice, as well as an option to pursue a pathway giving a broader approach to legal study.

Our learning facilities, which include a mock court room known as the Moot Room , our teaching expertise and hands-on approach aim to provide you with the confidence and knowledge to study towards your LLB. In addition, our focus on employability and our membership with the International Association of Law Schools can offer you many global opportunities to enhance your learning experience.

With over 50 years’ experience of teaching Law, Coventry University’s LLB Law degree is designed for careers in Law, but, equally suitable if you wished to pursue a career in Business or similar career paths.

From 2021, to become a Solicitor and/or Barrister in England and Wales you must either have an undergraduate degree, or equivalent experience (for example, by completing a degree level apprenticeship). Importantly, a Coventry undergraduate law degree should prepare candidates for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination Stage 1 test, as required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority in order to become a Solicitor, and for the Academic pathway, as required by the Bar Standards Board in order to become a Barrister.

What our students say

Being able to volunteer at the different law clinics while studying at university is something I have really enjoyed. Not only have I represented clients in Tribunals and gained work experience through this, I have also had the opportunity to visit South Africa and gain legal experience at the Stellenbosch University Legal Clinic!

I have been part of the exchange trip to China and the South Africa trip through the Legal Clinic. Both these trips have been very enjoyable and expanded my cultural awareness and well as the legal systems of these nations. They have mostly been educational but also included some sightseeing of some beautiful countries! I was able to watch Pandas in their natural habitats in China, as well as seen Penguins along the coastal line of Cape Town.

These will be complimented by modules in Year 1 which aim to help you develop the skills and expertise required for the study of law and by a module in Year 2, which will introduce you to a range of practical legal skills in order to contextualise your understanding of the modules studied thus far on the course.

The final year of the course provides you with the opportunity to specialise through the choice of one of the legal pathways provided on the course namely, Business Law, Trade and Finance Law, International Law, Criminal Law and Justice, Social Justice, or a pathway focused on Law more broadly, General Law.

You will also undertake a dissertation on a legal subject area of your choosing whilst solidifying your own legal research and academic writing skills prior to the conclusion of the course.

This course can be studied over three years of full-time or five to six years of part-time study. You also have the option to spend a year studying abroad or on work placement (subject to additional fees, application processes and/or availability of spaces). #

Modules are normally delivered through large group lectures and seminars of around 20 students. These seminars are interactive and may involve hypothetical problems, case studies and the analysis of more theoretical issues. In addition, you will be able to seek support and advice from a Progress Coach.

Teaching methods include: lectures and seminars.

This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will could vary depending upon the module. Assessment methods include formal examinations, coursework, test and essays, group work and presentations and posters. 

The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes. Assessments may include exams, individual assignments or group work elements.

On successful completion, you should be able to:

  • Critically understand the theories, concepts, values, principles and rules of public and private laws within an institutional, social, national and global context.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of contemporary issues and developments within the law both domestically and internationally.
  • Identify and synthesise relevant information from primary and secondary legal sources, using both digital and non-digital resources.
  • Draw reasoned conclusions through the application of legal principles and knowledge to complex real-life and/or hypothetical problems.

We set out below the typical teaching contact hours that you will receive on this course. Teaching contact hours will vary in different years of study and may vary due to module selection. In addition to the contact hours below, we offer the opportunity to attend additional optional sessions, including sessions with the Faculty’s progress coaches, or to meet with staff during their advice and feedback hours.

Within your first and second year, you will have 12 contact hours of teaching a week which includes:

  • Small group teaching, such as small class sessions each week.
  • Medium group teaching, such as practical classes, workshops or seminars each week.
  • Large group teaching, such as lectures each week.

In your final year, if you are undertaking a project/dissertation, there is a greater emphasis placed on independent study and therefore total contact hours may be reduced.

In addition, you will be expected to undertake a significant amount of self-directed studying and revising in your own time each week, which may include, for example, guided study using hand-outs, online activities.

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.

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 2018.

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.
