Your course, your way

At ARU you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • study a language as part of your course
  • study abroad for a semester

Accredited degree

Our three-year LLB (Hons) Law degree is accredited by the SRA and BSB. It’s the first step to becoming a solicitor or a barrister in the UK.


Our LLB (Hons) law is the first step to becoming a solicitor, barrister or paralegal. But you’ll also find that the course gives you skills that you can use in related roles, including business and commerce, policy making, public services or banking and finance.

We work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need – whichever sector you’re interested in. Employers and legal professionals often join us on campus too, for events such as guest lectures and careers fairs.

While you’re studying with us, you can gain valuable work experience in our law clinics, with supervision from qualified solicitors.

You’ll also benefit from our mentoring scheme, which partners you with a legal professional in your second year; and our undergraduate researcher scheme, where you support a member of academic staff who works in your field of interest.

Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us. You might decide to stay at ARU and study for a Masters. There are plenty of options, including our LLM International Law, LLM Advanced Legal Practice, LLM International Commercial Law and LLM International Business Law.
