About LLB Law

The University of Bristol Law School is a centre for an intellectually demanding, research-informed, legal education. We aim to produce intellectually accomplished, well-rounded, enquiring graduates with a rich, ethically grounded appreciation of law in business and society.

Our LLB programme is a three year qualifying law degree. In the final year all students produce a 5,000-word project on a topic of their choice. The core and optional units reflect the wide variety of approaches to legal research adopted by the scholars in the Law School. We are committed to the personal and professional development of our students; with small group teaching throughout, and an embedded law clinic programme enabling students to work, with professional guidance and support, on real life cases.

All applicants must sit the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT). Details are available on the LNAT website or the Law School website.
