Study LLB Law at the University of Bristol

"I can confidently say that coming to the University of Bristol was the best decision I have ever made. From the exceptional teaching to the beautiful city itself, I was in complete content to study at this university. [...] What impressed me the most was the quality of teaching. As a Law student, we get taught by QCs, parliamentary drafters and the distinguished professors."

    About LLB Law

The School of Law is a centre for an intellectually demanding, research-informed, legal education. We aim to produce intellectually accomplished, well-rounded, enquiring graduates with a rich, ethically-grounded appreciation of law in business and society.

Our LLB programme is a three-year qualifying law degree. In their final year all students produce a 5,000 word project on a topic of their choice. The core and optional units reflect the wide variety of approaches to legal research represented by the scholars in the Law School. We are committed to the personal and professional development of our students; All lectures are accompanied by small group teaching, and we have a thriving law clinic enabling students to work, with professional guidance and support, on real life cases.
