The subjects covered in this LLB are weighted 75% Law and 25% Business and Management, allowing you to develop your knowledge of business in a legal context.

This degree is suited to students who are interested in both law and business management, are possibly considering a career as an in-house lawyer, or are looking to build their legal expertise in a particular area of business.

Professional Accreditation/Recognition

The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board have accredited the Bradford LLB as a qualifying law degree. This means that, if you successfully complete the assessments and examinations in the seven foundations of legal knowledge and legal skills training, you will be eligible for exemption from the academic stage of training and be able to continue to the postgraduate study and practical-based training stages needed to become a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

Why Bradford?

During the first two years you will study subjects we consider crucial to your learning, giving you a good grounding in important legal topics, issues and principles within business; but you are also given plenty of choice to follow any specific interests you may have.

This is a qualifying law degree accredited by the Professional Bodies, and is therefore your first step into a career as a solicitor or barrister.

We will equip you with all the legal tools and expertise you’ll need, as well as help you develop important transferable knowledge and skills; honing your communication, analytical and critical thinking skills.

Our LLB programmes are flexible in structure and we will always try and facilitate a move between programmes if you decide that one of our other programmes is more suited to your interests.

You can also combine your passion for learning and travelling by studying abroad at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Canada, Australia, North America or Hong Kong.

Upon successful completion of the Bradford LLB Law degree, you are able to proceed to the Legal Practice Course (for aspiring solicitors) or the Bar Professional Training Course (for aspiring barristers).

Entry requirements

Typical offer: BBB / 120 UCAS points

New UCAS tariff

We use the UCAS tariff system to help us compare different qualifications. For courses starting from September 2017 onwards, the way points are calculated is changing.

The number of points you get for each qualification and grade will be lower, for example, an A* grade at A level will be worth 56 points from 2017 onwards, instead of 140 in 2016. Despite the lower points, you will still need to achieve the same grades. The only exception to this is that AS Levels will now be worth 40% of an A Level, instead of 50%.

All qualifications that are currently on the UCAS Tariff will continue to attract points under the new system. More qualifications are also being brought into the UCAS tariff system for the first time, including Access to Higher Education courses.

Work out your UCAS tariff points using the UCAS Tariff Calculator (link opens in a new tab).
