Law is an incredibly varied and multi-faceted subject which affects every part of human life, from the air we breathe, our relationships and education to our work, travel, property, and health.
The Law industry is dynamic and competitive and changes in line with social needs. A Law degree offers diverse career pathways and provides you with the skillset to succeed in a number of careers.
This course offers a practical and contemporary Qualifying Law Degree, recognised by employers and the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Should you choose a legal career, the solid grounding in law, emphasis on skills development, practical real-world insight gained through employer partnerships and pro bono work ensures you graduate ready for the next step of your legal training.
Teaching and Learning
A variety of learning techniques are used from the traditional lecture through to more student-centered approaches such as team exercises and research. In addition to this, mock courtrooms provide regular opportunities to practice legal submissions and gain experience of the court while law simulations allow you to practice key case working skills.
Assessments vary across the course, including problem and essay questions, examinations, research-based assessments, reflection on skills acquisition, report writing, portfolio submission, and presentations.
Enrolment and Duration
This is a 3-year full-time programme comprising of 12 modules. Each year commences in early October and runs for a period of 32 weeks. Students may enroll up to 2 weeks before the course starting date, however, early enrolment is advised as places are limited.
Candidates must be at least 17 years of age by 1st September of the year they wish to enter on the course and must hold a Secondary School Diploma. Candidates will also be required to be proficient in the English Language.
To achieve the LLB(Hons) degree in Law, you must complete all modules (360 credits). If for any reason, you are unable to complete the full course you may qualify for a Certificate or Diploma in Law providing you have completed the minimum number of required credits. (See ‘Course Modules’)
Our LLB degree provides you with the core legal knowledge to progress to either the Legal Practice Course or Bar Professional Training Course to become a Solicitor or Barrister. Alternatively, you may want to start your legal career immediately or pursue a different career pathway entirely. Law students are highly valued by employers due to the broad skill set gained from studying the subject. Whilst many students pursue a legal career as Solicitor, Barrister, Legal Advisor, Legal Executive or Paralegal there is also scope to enter a wide range of careers in HR, finance, teaching, advice, and charity work in the Public Sector.
Good to Know
The Law degree is also recognised by the Cyprus Bar Association and graduates may proceed to sit the examination set by the Legal Council which is a necessary step towards qualifying as an advocate in Cyprus.
