Single and joint-honours LLBs at Buckingham are all ‘Qualifying Law Degrees’ (QLDs) in that they offer the subjects necessary to go on and train as solicitors and barristers in England and Wales. Guidance on the extent to which these degrees are qualifying degrees for other common law jurisdictions can be found here: www.buckingham.ac.uk/law/study/qld.
Buckingham LLB graduates often go into practice in their respective jurisdictions, including Nigeria, Canada, Pakistan, the Bahamas and England and Wales. Our Law graduates also become entrepreneurs, politicians, civil servants, bankers, management etc.
What this highlights is that studying Law develops transferable skills. Analysing a complex web of cases and statutory provisions, applying the results of that analysis to a new set of facts, and then having to present the findings orally or in writing, is a set of skills with applications far beyond the Law.
There are two key features of Buckingham LLB courses aimed at developing these skills:
- Our small tutorial groups where all students are expected to contribute to debates with their tutors and fellow students; and
- Our skills courses emphasising written and oral presentations and also requiring participation in negotiation exercises.

If you are not ready to begin studying Law at undergraduate level immediately, we have Foundation courses designed to prepare you.
