The LLB, a law qualifying degree in both England and Wales, is a challenging course of study based in the common law. Graduate entry students enrol with both the University of London and AAU for a two year intensive course of study.
Students who have already obtained an undergraduate degree may opt to enrol as a graduate entry student. This route allows for LLB studies to be completed in two years rather than three, taking nine classes rather than twelve. Interested applicants should first check with their desired jurisdiction to ensure that a two year law qualification satisfies the local requirements.
Lecturers at AAU follow the course content set out by the University of London and teach to ensure that students have the knowledge and abilities required to earn a law qualifying degree. The University of London develops the courses, selects the materials, sets the examinations, and grades to their internal standards, thus, the degree awarded is equal in integrity to the University of London Law Consortium institutions, institutions such as LSE, UCL, and King’s College. All LLB courses are year-long and exams are held during May and June at the British Council.
LLB coursework completed at AAU is not formally graded but is utilized to assist students in developing their writing skills and knowledge of the subject matter. Participation and regular attendance are essential; the intimate nature of our classrooms and small class sizes ensure each student receives personal attention during each session. The integration of the University of London’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and course materials with AAU’s mock exams, essays and extensive individualised feedback help students prepare for their examinations while developing skills inherent to the study of law.
Graduate entry students start their studies with the four standard first year LLB courses. The second year of study consists of five LLB courses and is shared with both second and third year undergraduate students, depending on the courses selected. Graduate entry students are encouraged to participate in local courses such as Legal Research and Writing or Moot Court, which will help to develop the skills expected of a laws graduate.
Tuition is payable to AAU each semester, and a registration fee and fee for materials is paid to the University of London. Students register for their exams separately, midway through the year, and pay an examination fee to the University of London as well as to the British Council where they choose to test.
