Law With...

LL.B. with another subject Law LL.B. (with another subject) 2016/17

The Department of Law and Criminal Justice offers a virtually unique series of ‘LL.B with...’ degrees that you will find offered in few other Universities. These include:

LLB (Honours) with:

  • Business
  • Criminology
  • Finance
  • Forensic Investigation
  • History
  • International Relations
  • Policing*
  • Politics
  • Sociology

*subject to validation

Choosing one of these options will mean:

  • The opportunity to obtain a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by both the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board to enable you to go straight on to the Vocational Stage to qualify as a Solicitor (Legal Practice Course) or a Barrister (Bar Professional Training Course).
  • The ability to combine a completely different area of study within a fully Qualifying Law Degree, getting the ‘best of both worlds’.
  • The opportunity to develop specialist employability skills making you even more attractive to future employers both within law and your other chosen subject.
  • Recognition for exemption purposes from Professional Bodies such as Accountancy; Purchasing and Supply; Personnel Development; Marketing and others.
  • We are in the process of developing links with our local Citizens Advice Bureau, which is a voluntary advice service. This will enable you to train as Advisors and provide ‘frontline’ advice and obtain realistic practical experience.

Within Canterbury Christ Church we have an excellent Career Development service, which works with the Law Programmes to provide a comprehensive package of support and guidance designed specifically for our students.

We understand the huge commitment you are making by studying with us and we will do everything we can to develop the skills employers tell us they need.

We are very much an ‘applied’ Law School teaching both theoretical and practical approaches to law.

Law with... at Canterbury Christ Church University is original and innovative because it not only combines the essential teaching you need for a Qualifying Law Degree, but also the ability to combine your LLB with an entirely different discipline making up one third of your programme every year.

In Year 1, for example, the basics of Criminal Law, the English Legal System, Contract Law and Constitutional Law are taught as part of your law degree plus a further 2 modules from your ‘with...’ discipline, whether Business, Criminology or any of the other combinations listed on the left.

In Year 2, Property Law, Torts and Administrative Law are core modules alongside 2 modules from your ‘with…’ discipline. In addition, you will have the option to choose 1 elective module from Corporate Law, Race and the Law, Law and Religion, and Internet and the Law, for example.

In Year 3, normal law teaching includes European Law and Equity and Trusts. You will take a further 2 modules from your ‘with...’ discipline alongside 2 elective modules typically chosen from International Law, Employment Law, International Human Rights, Civil and Commercial Mediation, Family Law and Intellectual Property Law.

A law degree is highly valued by employers in all fields over an ‘ordinary’ degree. Employers know that a student having taken a more rigorous degree such as LLB has not just a critical knowledge and understanding of the law, but an ability to construct a logical argument as well as demonstrate problem-solving skills. A Qualifying Law Degree itself will provide you with the necessary qualifications to either become a solicitor through studying on the Legal Practice Course or to become a barrister by studying on the Bar Professional Training course. In addition, you will have extra knowledge in another field, which can be used as a particular specialism within law practice. Conversely, if choosing to pursue a career in your other non-law subject, bringing an additional knowledge of the law and how it applies to that field makes a winning combination for any employer.
