Law affects all of our lives and the knowledge of law increases our understanding of the society and the world in which we live. This course programme provide a liberal education in Law, or in Law combined with another discipline, to promote such an awareness and to allow those who so wish to progress to careers in the legal professions.
You can combine the study of Law with a range of subjects. Approximately two-thirds of the curriculum will focus on Law and one-third on the other subject. All are LLB degrees and all have been accredited by the Law Society and the Bar Council as Qualifying Law Degrees (QLD). This status denotes that Bangor LLB graduates have completed the academic stage of training for the legal professions in England and Wales, and may enter directly onto Legal Practice Courses (LPC) to become solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to become barristers.
Combining Law with Business in a Qualifying Law Degree is a natural marriage because practising lawyers are business people in their own right and also spend much of their working lives advising individual and corporate business clients. The globalisation of business and the increased regulation which has followed has led to increased opportunities for lawyers with knowledge of the rules that apply to corporate governance and human resource management.
A range of Business modules is undertaken in conjunction with the compulsory modules in Law.
Bangor University is recognised as a qualifying law degree provider by the Bar Standards Board and this degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
