From 2008 we offer a radical and innovative new four year degree course combining the traditional law degree with the final stage for qualifying as a solicitor, normally completed through the Legal Practice Course (LPC). At the end of the four years you could achieve an LLB(Hons) plus a Master of Law and Practice (‘M Law and Pract’). We are only the second University in the country to be authorised to offer this course by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and this is the first time the SRA has approved such radical reform since 1992. Apart from the added value of obtaining a Master’s degree, you can benefit enormously as all fees are deferred until you are in employment.

The School admits around 120 students a year on its full-time LLB/ Master of Law and Practice programmes. Our emphasis is on personal tutor arrangements which means that you get the advantage of close tuition and access to advice and support. According to your choice of options, you can be awarded an LLB(Hons) or a more specialised LLB(Hons) Business Law. The LLB is also offered on a part-time basis by flexible learning and also by distance learning.

There are four joint honours degrees involving Law: BA Law and Accountancy, BA(Hons) Law and Business, BA(Hons) History and Law and BA(Hons) Politics and Law.

In addition, the School offers both full and part-time courses leading to the Common Professional Examination; a range of postgraduate and professional provision, including LLM by distance learning, LLM by Dissertation designed for legal practitioners and specialist routes in LLM (Commercial Law) and LLM (International Law). We can also provide supervision for research degrees of MPhil and PhD.

The School also offers the LLB degree programme at the University Centre Oldham (UCO). As well as providing teaching inputs on this course, staff  also make substantial contributions to other courses within the Business School and elsewhere in the University.

The School was one of the first new providers to be validated to run the Legal Practice Course from 1993.
