Overview

Studying Law provides the opportunity to help to sharpen the mind, build an analytical skillset and develop your problem-solving abilities, which could help to set you up for a potential future legal or business career.

Our LLB Law (Hons) course 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 areas 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, General Law. This course structure gives you the chance to gain a grounding in crucial legal knowledge, coupled with specialist insight– allowing you the opportunity, upon successful completion, to gain sector relevant knowledge that can help differentiate you in the employment market.

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 explore legal topics and issues. In addition, our focus on employability could help you get the skills needed for your potential future career options, and our membership with the International Association of Law Schools can offer you many global opportunities to help to enhance your learning experience.

With over 50 years’ experience of teaching law, Coventry University’s Law LLB (Hons) degree is designed for potential career options in law, but is equally suitable if you wish to pursue a potential future career in business.

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. Please note that both routes/pathways to qualification are subject to competitive application, criteria, availability, meeting any applicable visa requirements and additional costs may apply.

Why Coventry University?

An award-winning university, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible experience. We continue to invest in both our facilities and our innovative approach to education. Our students benefit from industry-relevant teaching, and resources and support designed to help them succeed. These range from our modern library and computing facilities to dedicated careers advice and our impressive Students’ Union activities.

What our students say

Being able to volunteer at the different law clinics while studying at Coventry 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.

Course information

A key feature of our Law LLB (Hons) course is that it allows you to specialise in a specific area of law in your final year, while covering ‘the foundations of legal knowledge’ in the first two years. In addition to this, you will have the opportunity to undertake a ‘UK work placement’ or ‘study/work abroad’* year, which could add valuable work experience or international experience to your CV.

The Law LLB (Hons) course provides an opportunity for you to develop your subject knowledge, alongside both specific practical legal skills, and other more transferable skills. This course aims to contribute to your potential future preparation for Stage 1 of the Solicitors Qualification Examination (subject to competitive application, availability, meeting applicable visa requirements and additional costs may apply), as required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority or potential future preparation for the Bar Professional Training Course and a potential future career at the Bar (subject to competitive application, availability, meeting applicable visa requirements and additional costs may apply).

However, the utility of the course is not restricted to those who wish to pursue a potential future career within the legal profession. The skills and attributes which should be developed and acquired throughout the course can be translatable to many other positive potential future career options. For more detail please see the Study Themes and On Completion sections of this webpage.

In your final year, you are able to choose from a specialist legal pathway, which aims to give you a deeper understanding of an area of law that interests you. You can also choose to follow a pathway offering a broader approach to law. The offered pathways are:

  • Business Law
  • Trade and Finance Law
  • International Law
  • Criminal Law and Justice
  • Social Justice
  • General Law

These pathways comprise a suite of complementary modules relating to the particular area of specialism, combining both substantive legal modules and pathway specific practical legal skills. Although primarily specialised in nature, the pathways are designed to demonstrate the inter-connectivity of law and to allow you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of a particular legal area, as well as how it connects with others.

We recognise the importance of adding value to your CV and have done this by incorporating a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) module into each year of your course. Our CPD modules and employability support team will support your engagement with work experience opportunities, including the clinical legal education opportunities offered by Coventry Law School through its law clinic provisions, which are subject to availability and competitive application. You also have the chance to tailor your CPD programme to your own individual interests and needs, thus designed to provide a unique individual experience. Please note that work experience opportunities are subject to competitive application, availability, meeting any applicable visa requirements, and additional costs may apply.

*Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.

Overview

In your second year you will have the opportunity to further develop the ‘foundations of legal knowledge’ required for a Law degree, as well as studying the Introduction to Practical Legal Skills module, which has been designed to introduce you to a range of practical legal skills, such as advocacy, interviewing, negotiation and drafting.

Add+vantage

The focus on preparing students for successful futures sets Coventry apart as a university.

The Add+vantage modules teach a range of work experience and extra-curricular activities that are taken each year, and broaden students knowledge and skills within a work focused environment. There is a very wide range of Add+vantage free-choice subject areas, and they are arranged in themes.

Overview

Following your second year, you will have the option to apply for either one-year professional work placement or apply to study abroad* in a partner institution. Coventry Law School, as a member of the International Association of Law Schools, may be able to help support you in exploring study abroad* options with its partners around the world, while our Talent Team will be able to provide support in applying for placement opportunities.

If you wish to undertake the optional study abroad/placement year*, you will take either the Placement Year module or the Study Abroad Year module which both typically run for a full academic year between years 2 and 3 of your course. You are able to progress onto the relevant module if you have successfully completed the first two years of the course (i.e. having accumulated 240 credits) and have a confirmed opportunity two weeks prior to the start of the academic year, however we encourage international students to confirm their placements earlier to ensure they are able to meet any applicable visa requirements.

Students opting for either the work placement or study abroad module* will be registered on a non-credit bearing module and therefore no additional tuition fees apply. While the modules do not bear credits, they do require completion of a marked assessment reflecting on your placement/study abroad or work placement experience. Following successful completion of this assessment, the module selected will appear on your final academic transcript. Students will thus graduate with 360 credits in total, assuming successful completion of their final year.

*Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements.

The course structure is based upon you undertaking Core modules in Years 1 and 2 which primarily consist of the ‘foundations of legal knowledge’. 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, providing the opportunity to help to contextualise your understanding of the modules studied to that point 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: Business Law, Trade and Finance Law, International Law, Criminal Law and Justice, Social Justice, or a pathway focused on Law more broadly, General Law.

These pathways will comprise of a suite of complimentary modules pertaining to the particular area of specialism, combining both substantive legal modules and pathway specific practical legal skills. Although primarily specialised in nature, the pathways are designed to demonstrate the interconnectivity of law and allow you the chance to synthesise your understanding of a particular legal area. For those who do not wish to direct their learning along a specialism-specific pathway, a General Law Pathway will be available to provide a broader approach to the study of the law, whilst nevertheless retaining the key features of the specialist Pathways. 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 full-time, or 4 years with an optional placement/study abroad year. This course can also be studied part-time, over 4-6 years, without the option of a study abroad/work placement year*. Find out more about part-time study, including contact details to discuss undertaking it with us.

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, who will be available to speak to about any academic or personal issues.

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 will 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.
  • Demonstrate intellectual independence including addressing and resolving legal and related questions, identifying gaps in their own knowledge and acquiring new knowledge, tolerating ambiguity and engaging in critical analysis and evaluation.

  • Communicate effectively, by explaining and conveying information at various levels appropriate to the audience.
  • Demonstrate self-management, including an ability to be reflective, make effective use of feedback, and to work independently and collaboratively as appropriate in order to enhance employability.

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 around 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 potential future career options. 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 can offer you advice and guidance to help give you the opportunity to achieve a global experience. The Law School currently has particularly strong links with the South West University of Politics and Law (SWUPL) in Chonqing, China and the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. We have also established links with the Universities of Liege in Belgium University of Nebrija in Madrid, University of the West Indies, OSFALA Brunswick Law School, as well as the Universities of Castellon and Leon in Spain (Spanish speaking), The Hague University in the Netherlands and the University of Orebro in Sweden.

We offer a range of optional field trips to enable you the opportunity to experience the legal systems of different countries, which have 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 usually host live seminars with students abroad via web link and provide opportunities to attend international summer schools.

Throughout the course, staff aim to 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.

*Please note that all placements, field trips and study opportunities (whether in the UK or abroad) may be subject to additional fees, application processes and/or be limited in available spaces.

What our students say

Staff are incredibly encouraging and understanding. The ability to contact anyone within your teaching team if you have a query is incredible, rather than only having one tutor that you are confined to. I was panicking recently in a seminar about placements and the abundance of deadlines and the seminar leader was sympathetic and motivating while providing many of the group with information.

Career prospects

Graduate Immigration Route visa

Based on current information from the UK Government, international students whose study extends beyond summer 2021 may be eligible for a visa under the UK Government’s Graduate Immigration Route, which will enable students to stay and work, or look for work, in the UK at any skill level for up to two (2) years. Check the most up to date guidance available to check your eligibility and any updates from the UK Government before making an application or enrolment decision.

The skills and attributes developed and acquired throughout our Law LLB (Hons) course are translatable to many other positive potential future career options and the course is designed to help prepare you for the global jobs market or further graduate level study. Our Talent Team, are on hand to offer advice, potential employment opportunities, CV/personal statement checks and placement advice, as well as hosting an annual Employment Fair, dedicated to students studying Business and Law courses (subject to availability).

Some our of our previous graduates started their legal careers at organisations such as the Criminal Cases Review Commission or Crown Prosecution Service, while others have chosen to become specialist advisors in commercial and business law for high street, national and international firms. Examples of recent graduate employers include: Brethertons LLP, a growing Midlands firm with six offices; Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, a leading multinational law firm; and Ince and Co, a specialist international commercial firm with offices in Dubai, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Le Havre, London, Paris, Piraeus, Shanghai and Singapore.
