PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Brexit transition period, AAU is awaiting approval from the Czech Ministry of Education for permission to continue operating the University of London programmes in the Czech Republic under the new post-Brexit framework. The application processing takes approximately three to five months. Until then, all law students will be registered and study as Life-Long Learning students. Upon receiving permission from the Ministry, AAU will automatically change all law students back to the Standard status and they will continue as usual. For more information, please contact admissions@aauni.edu

About the Program

Students who have already obtained an undergraduate degree may opt to enroll 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.

“I’m studying UK law taught by professors who know my name and genuinely care about me, with students from Montenegro, Tunisia, South Africa, and so on. I’m working a legal internship with an AAU alumni that has given me incredible experience and unique opportunities. All this against the magical backdrop that is the City of a Hundred Spires. What more could I ask for?”

Hanna Ripper, Law student, musician, Student of the Year 2016

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. 

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.

Your Degree & After

Courses at Anglo-American University are taught by highly-qualified instructors with Master’s and Doctorate degrees in law, primarily from common law jurisdictions. Furthermore, as many instructors are adjunct instructors, they also have extensive professional legal experience. Courses are led by instructors with intensive facilitated discussions with students. Furthermore, throughout the course, students have written assignments and mock examinations, in which they are provided with detailed feedback from their instructors. 

“The most exciting thing that happened to me in law school was the Moot Court. Even though it was more of a study case, it felt real and required an enormous amount of preparation, research and dedication. I spent nights and days trying to find appropriate case law and legislation to stay prepared. Thanks to this practical experience, I have learned that it is always better to settle the case before going to trial”

Examinations are then administered and graded by the University of London and students sit for the examinations at the British Council in Prague. As such, the final diploma for the LLB is awarded by the University of London. 

Both AAU and UOL are able to provide information and confirmation of study regarding the program to prospective employers, postgraduate program applications, and application to Bar and professional legal examiners.
