The LLB, a law qualifying degree in both England and Wales, is a challenging course of study based in the common law. LLB students enrol with the University of London and Anglo-American University (AAU) in order to receive local instruction from AAU’s School of Law Faculty as they earn a British degree.
Lecturers at AAU follow the course content set out by the University of London and teach to ensure that students have the knowledge and skills expected of a laws graduate. The University of London develops the courses, selects the materials, sets the examinations, and grades to their internal standards. The degree awarded is equal in integrity to the University of London Law Consortium institutions, institutions such as LSE, UCL, and King’s College.
LLB coursework completed at AAU is not formally graded but is utilized to assist students in developing their writing skills and knowledge of the subject matter. Participation and regular attendance are essential; the intimate nature of our classrooms and small class sizes ensure each student receives personal attention during each session. The integration of the University of London’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and course materials with AAU’s mock exams, essays and extensive individualised feedback help students prepare for their examinations
AAU‘s local courses ensure students develop a range of skills expected of laws graduates. Classes such as Legal English, Legal Research and Writing, and Moot Court help to develop and refine writing, research, public speaking, and teamwork skills; skills that potential employers find highly desirable.
Students may take as little as one or as many as four London designed courses. Full-time studies consist of four University of London courses and one AAU support course each year, for three years. Those who wish to earn a professional qualification must complete their studies within six years; students may take longer however their degree will not serve as a law qualifying degree.
Laws graduates can enter the workforce as legally trained professionals upon completion of their degree, or move on to a Masters in Law or other graduate programme. A law degree does not necessarily mean a graduate must become a solicitor or barrister; career options are vast and varied as with students going in to the corporate sector as well as non-profit work.
Tuition is payable to AAU each semesters, and a registration fee and fee for materials is paid to the University of London. Students register for their exams separately, midway through the year, and pay an examination fee to the University of London as well as to the British Council where they choose to test.
Admissions standards require that undergraduate applicants have a secondary education equivalent to British A-Levels. Students whose education does not meet that standard may enrol on the Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law (CertHE Common Law) in order to start their law studies. The CertHE is the first year of the LLB restructured to provide greater support and development for students who have yet to meet the LLB requirements or want a slower pace of study.
