Law (Individual Rights) LLB (Hons)

University of Gloucestershire

What is Law (Individual Rights) LLB (Hons)?

Explore the fundamental principles of law in England and Wales, as well as international law, on a law degree designed to enable prospective lawyers to obtain the legal knowledge, skills and attributes needed to pursue a career in law. The LLB Law degree has been designed to allow students to engage with the numerous aspects of law, including both the theoretical underpinning as well as practical execution and critical analysis of the law. Our commitment to developing the skills as well intellectual ability of our students leads to high levels of student satisfaction with the programme.

Our law courses were ranked 2nd in the UK for teaching and 2nd in the UK for academic support according to the National Student Survey 2023.

The Individual Rights pathway will enable you to tailor your studies to obtain specialist knowledge on how different areas of the law ensure and uphold the rights of individuals. You will also have the opportunity undertake an extended piece of research via the dissertation module on a self-selected rights-based topic. By the end of your studies, you will be able to make an informed assessment of how far the law is able to protect the individual rights of citizens, in both a private and public sphere.

You’ll take part in engaging and stimulating teaching through our interactive and challenging teaching sessions which focus not only on the letter of the law, but also the practical application and critique of it.

Study Style

Adopting both practice-based and research-led teaching means students have the opportunity to be taught by subject specialists and experience the most recent developments in the law, whilst also grappling with the social and political implications of legal changes.

Through lectures, seminars and group work, you’ll put your learning to the test in class debates and mooting sessions. You’ll learn how to argue a case effectively in court, interview clients and negotiate agreements, benefitting from simulated trials and tribunals in our dedicated Moot Court Room. You can also take part in both internal and external mooting competitions and become part of our successful alumni of previous winners.

There is the opportunity to spend a year on placement through the four-year sandwich course option.
