Graduates of any discipline can take this course to fast-track their studies and gain an LLB in two years. You’ll gain a solid grounding in English law and explore international, European and Canadian law as part of the course.

You’ll cover theoretical and practical aspects of law, and benefit from:

  • being taught by research-active faculty and joining a vibrant community with an active student law body
  • getting involved in the local community through the Sussex Law Clinicsgaining valuable work experience of the law in action before you graduate
  • our links with leading law firms that sponsor our student competitions in national and international mooting, criminal advocacy, client interviewing, negotiation, mediation and legal debating.

Studying law develops your skills of analysis, argument and persuasion, equipping you for a variety of careers. And our supportive group of alumni are happy to provide career advice for current students.

Successful completion of any of our law courses will provide you with a qualifying law degree.
