This course is truly innovative in its style of teaching and has an enviable record in national competitions. Moots or 'mock trials' are a speciality and we have regular success at the prestigious Essex Court Chambers national mooting competition and the UKLSA.
We also have a history of success at the Client Interviewing and Counselling Competition, reaching the finals in 2010, and we hosted the UK’s first ever National Mediation Competition for law students.
More recently, a Mediation team represented the School at the prestigious INADR Inaugural Invitations Law Schools Mediation Tournament in Dubai - the team were crowned overall champions and each individual received a top 10 finalist spot.
Employability sits at the heart of this professional programme, and you will have the opportunity to apply for a 48 week work placement in the UK or alternatively overseas in combination with the School's Erasmus + programme.
Erasmus + offers you the chance to learn how legal systems work in other countries, with institutions in Malaga (Spain), Oviedo, Spain, LUMSA Liberia Universita Degli Studi Maria (Italy) or Hasselt University (Belgium), or by taking part in study trips to other countries, such as China and Malta.
LJMU is one of very few law schools currently offering a sandwich year option LLB, which combined with a range of unique features, such as our student mentoring scheme, and our active student law society, will provide you with excellent ways to develop future employment opportunities.
