Study for a University of London LLB law degree in Jersey
The Institute enables students in Jersey to study for the University of London LLB. This prestigious law degree can be a stepping-stone to qualifying as a lawyer in Jersey, England and Wales and many other jurisdictions. Law is also a fascinating subject to study in its own right.
Having a course that is flexible and suited to the needs of a student is of utmost importance, and so rather than follow a system which focuses on years it will take to complete the course, the University of London LLB instead operates on a level system; undergraduates take 12 subjects over Levels 4, 5 and 6, and students who are already graduates take 9 over the same Levels, taking one fewer subject per Level. Because of this, there is no standard route; instead students can take 1-4 or -5 modules per year, dependent on personal circumstances, over a maximum of 6 years for a qualifying law degree. The degree requires a regular commitment to additional private study.
For the 2020/21 academic year, all our classes will take place remotely, using our video conferencing system.
We also offer the LLB Double Degree, which allows you to study for French and English law degrees concurrently.
For school leavers, we expect a minimum of BCC at A2-level, 25 IB points or the equivalent in other exams. We accept a wide range of academic and professional qualifications from mature students, including Access to HE diplomas. If you are awaiting exam results, you may be made a conditional offer.
