The course is a qualifying Law degree (covering the academic stage of training for solicitors and barristers) recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board.
You will study in our dedicated law environment, which includes a mock courtroom, client interviewing room and an integrated law library.
You’re guaranteed a place on our Legal Practice Course upon successful completion of this degree - the next stage of training to become a solicitor (subject to conditions).
Our careers and placements team, #DMUworks, will help you gain the skills and qualities that today’s employers are looking for through placement opportunities with local, national and global companies. Students have worked at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Wilkin Chapman LLP Solicitors, Shoosmiths and Disney.
Law LLB students have been on trips to New York, Berlin, Toronto and Doha through #DMUglobal. In New York, students had a tour of the iconic Supreme Civil Court, where they gained valuable insights into the American justice system and learned about the comprehensive juror selection process.
Our graduates have gone on to careers in world-renowned organisations. Roles include paralegal at Pinsent Masons, legal assistant at D Young & Co., solicitor at Bobby Dhanjal Legal Services and many more.
On this course you will study a range of topics such as Family Law, Issues in Civil Liberties, Substantive Law of the European Union and Law of Evidence.

Our mission to fight prejudice in access to the Legal Professions
We are proud that one in five DMU students feel confident to declare mental and physical disabilities, and we boast award-winning support in this area. In law, our teaching and assessments are designed to ensure that if you have a disability, you are still equipped with the skills and have the opportunity to engage with the challenges that you will face in practice.
We are worried that the legal profession is disproportionately white and from more privileged backgrounds. Through initiatives, such as the Black Lawyer’s Society, working with the Society of Asian Lawyers and promoting the Freshfields Stephen Lawrence Scholarship, we are actively working towards tackling this.
Our staff are ethnically and nationally diverse, giving you the opportunity to choose your personal tutor so that you may forge a mentorship relationship in your first year to support your success, regardless of your background.
