About Law (with Chinese Law), LLB - at University of Sheffield

This four-year course will give you an English LLB degree with a specialism in Chinese law, a distinctive area that makes you highly employable. You don't need to speak or have studied Mandarin before you start: you'll learn this in your first year.

We'll teach you about Chinese law, culture and business. You'll learn how to advise clients, resolve disputes and conduct legal transactions.

You'll spend your third year abroad studying in English at the law faculty of a top law school in China. Returning to Sheffield for your final year, you choose from a wide range of optional modules to complete your studies.

The Core Legal and Study Skills module includes an introduction to mooting, employability workshops and study skills sessions.

When you graduate you'll have the skills required by global law firms with clients and bases in China.

Practice of law

Our LLB degrees provide you with expert knowledge to enter the legal profession. 

If you plan to be a solicitor, after graduation you'll need to complete the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) and undertake a two-year period of qualifying work experience. Thanks to a collaboration between the University of Sheffield and the University of Law, you can study a Solicitor Qualifying Exam (SQE) course at our Sheffield campus.

If you plan to be a barrister, our courses satisfy the seven 'foundations of legal knowledge' set by the Bar Standards Board . After graduation you'll need to complete a Bar training course and undergo a period of work-based training supervised by an experienced barrister, known as a pupillage.
