Accredited degree

Our law degree provides the seven core foundations of legal knowledge and meets the requirements of the Bar Standards Board for a career as a solicitor or 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, such as our LLM International Business and Commercial Law. Take advantage of our Alumni Scholarship and get 20% off your fees.


"The ARUCPD mooting module is one of the best extracurricular activities. It develops my confidence, the way of arguing and is useful practice for a proper court case. My team worked really hard on the case and when the time of the competition came, we were prepared. I am really grateful I took this module!”


ARUCPD is open to students in the Faculty of Business and Law in Cambridge or Chelmsford.
