About Law with Foundation Year at Liverpool John Moores University

Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the LLB Law honours degree programme yet.

Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).


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.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
