London South Bank University

Course Introduction

While our graduates may go on to join professional courses leading to qualification as a solicitor or barrister, the LLB is also useful for numerous jobs that value skills in analysis, clear communication, efficient organisation and reasoned persuasion. It is a gold standard degree valued by Employers because a sound understanding of the law is sought in most areas of commercial and industrial life. Small companies, individual company departments and service or voluntary organisations seek specialist legal advice on major issues. They also require staff with an awareness of where the legal pitfalls may lie and an understanding of when specialists need to be consulted.
