Inspired by our past to help shape your future

With 50 years of academic excellence behind us as a University, we have continued to grow our international reputation and course provision. We have always been pioneers in developing new course subjects, reflecting and anticipating the needs of employers, our students, and of society as a whole.

Bradford was the first university outside London to offer part-time degree courses, and our courses are designed in response to the changing business, social, scientific and environmental landscape.

From the first modern Business School, which has an international reputation, to the first Peace Studies degree, we continue to offer relevant, practical and useful learning for all our students.

Today our associations with employers have expanded across the globe. Our collaborations range from associations with local employers through our employer engagement initiatives, to overseas partnerships including those in Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan and India.

"You can be confident of your University developing in the future with the same dynamism as has been shown in the past – educating men and women who receive education and training relevant to the needs of our changing society."

Harold Wilson

former Prime Minister and our first Chancellor

Overview

Our LLB (Hons) degree gives you the legal tools you need for a career as a solicitor or barrister, as well as equipping you for employment in other areas if you choose not to go on to a professional qualification in law.

The programme is taught by a mix of academic experts and practitioner lawyers, who put real-world clinical legal experience at the heart of the programme. You’ll develop a critical grasp of the law and its political, social and economic contexts.

This LLB is suited to students who have a general interest in law and legal studies and who do not want to focus on a particular area of law at this early stage.

Our LLB programmes are flexible in structure and share a common first and second year, which gives you the option to switch to a more specialist LLB in the final year and tailor your study to a particular aspect of law. This allows you to take your time to decide on which aspect of law is right for you.... [-]
