University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

TEACHING: In the 2014 and 2015 National Student Surveys, LLB Hons Law at Greenwich received excellent ratings for student satisfaction, reflecting the innovation and dedication of our teaching team. EMPLOYABILITY & EXTRA'CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: The School has good links with a number of employers in London, including law firms, barristers' chambers and financial institutions. Opportunities may be available for LLB Hons Law students to apply* for placements, internships and mentoring schemes with a variety of employers in the legal and regulatory sectors. LLB Hons Law students are also able to apply* to undertake pro bono work through various schemes run by the school. These include our Legal Advice Centre, winner of a 2015 LawWorks & Attorney General Student Pro Bono Award. The centre enables the students selected to work closely with volunteer lawyers and the centre's senior supervising solicitor to provide advice to the public. The Innocence Project London is also run from the School of Law. Currently one of only ten international projects accepted as members of the US'based Innocence Network, and the only UK member, the project enables our students to apply* to work on real cases concerning miscarriages of justice. This important work can lead to the submission of appeal applications to the Criminal Cases Review Commission. The school has a tradition of extracurricular activities, including a student'run Law Society. LLB students can apply* to be selected for our client interviewing or mooting team in order to further their skills and experience. Mooting is arguing a hypothetical case in a court setting. Our LLB Hons Law students were finalists in the OUP and BPP National Mooting Competition 2014'15. (* PLEASE NOTE: ALL employability and extra'curricular opportunities listed may only be open to certain students, may involve an application process and may also involve successfully passing a selection process.)
