The LLB Law with European Legal Systems degree provides students with all the foundational English law modules required to obtain a qualifying law degree and an opportunity to spend a year at a university in another European country. The various skills obtained during the four years provide a versatile base from which to pursue your chosen profession. This degree can lead to a career as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales.

Course Structure

The LLB Law with European Legal Systems degree provides students with an opportunity to study law in its wider European context. It is designed for those who do not have a second European language but who wish to benefit from a year abroad studying at another European university.

First Year:
  • The first, second and final years are spent at the University of East Anglia following the same course of study as students on the standard LLB.
  • The first year provides the foundation for the remainder of the degree with emphasis placed upon providing you with the skills for practice as a lawyer, including legal writing, legal research and legal reasoning skills. You will take six core modules: Legal Method, Skills and Reasoning; Law in Practice; Constitutional and Administrative Law; English Legal Process; Principles of Criminal Law; and Contract Law.
  • You will also be required to take the skills development programme run by the School and will have the opportunity of taking part in extra-curricular activities, such as mooting, negotiation and pro bono work.
Second Year:
  • You will cover four more core law subjects required for a qualifying law degree. These are Land Law, Tort Law, EU Law and Trusts. You will then choose two optional choice modules. All of these modules are for one semester only.
  • The second part of the Skills Development Programme is also taken in this year and focuses extensively on career development skills. Many during the second year choose to take a more active role in extra-curricular activities and in the Student Law Society.
Third Year:
  • The third year is spent at a host European university, where you will follow modules in specialised areas of European and International Law. The Law School currently has exchange programmes with the following universities that offer law courses taught in English: Leiden, Maastricht and Groningen (Netherlands); Leuven (Belgium); Lund and Uppsala (Sweden); Aarhus (Denmark); Prague (Czech Republic); Thessaloniki (Greece); Vilnius (Lithuania); Luiss, Rome (Italy); Lucerne (Switzerland); Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Comenius, Bratislava (Slovakia). Students proficient in German may study at universities in Berlin, Hamburg, Marburg and Trier (Germany) or Salzburg (Austria). Students proficient in Spanish may study at Deusto University, Bilbao, or the University of Salamanca. While you are required to pass the year abroad, the marks do not contribute to your final degree classification.
  • Studies abroad are undertaken as an Erasmus exchange student and are ideal for developing a wide range of transferable skills. Support in preparing for the exchange and during the time away is provided by a dedicated member of faculty and administrators.
Fourth Year:
  • Back in the UK, students can tailor the final year by selecting six modules either offered or approved by the School including a range of interdisciplinary subjects from other faculties, alongside core law disciplines.

Assessment

Assessment on the LLB Law with European Legal Systems is by a mixture of examinations and coursework. Some optional modules are assessed entirely by coursework while others include seen, pre-release or open book exams. In addition, students are encouraged to submit non-assessed coursework regularly throughout the year, providing an opportunity for written feedback.

About the School

The Law School at the University of East Anglia is a unique, socially responsible community of excellent research and teaching that not only prepares current students for careers both in law and many other professions, but also engages with the wider community with a vast range of pro-bono work undertaken by our undergraduates as part of our Law Clinic. The School came joint fourth for Teaching in the 2012 National Student Survey.

The School also enjoys excellent links with our alumni and with colleagues in other Schools at UEA with many interdisciplinary modules on our courses utilising the expertise on offer elsewhere in the University. There is now an even greater emphasis on employability on our courses with a strong focus on mentoring, internships and transferable skills.

2013 will see students return to the Law School’s 16th century home, which has just opened after extensive restoration and refurbishment. Earlham Hall is an elegant, secluded building providing student social space, offices, study areas and lecture theatres set in beautiful parkland leading down to the River Yare. Earlham Hall is an amazing base in which to study.

Employability

We produce highly employable students in part due to the systems, programmes and opportunities we offer. A core element of the School’s employability strategy, for example, is the maintenance and development of excellent relationships with the wider legal community and beyond. Employment also features as a fundamental part of the curriculum with an active focus on Law in Practice (which develops career management skills) whilst the Legal Method, Skills and Reasoning modules help develop useful transferable skills The School already has a number of scholarships and prizes from law firms and has one of the largest internship programmes of any law school in the UK with 40 places kept solely for UEA law students, whilst the Mentor Scheme matches second year students with established barristers and solicitors.

Student Experience

The School has a strong community engagement ethos. Not only is this of value to the students in instrumental terms but most importantly, the School has a fundamental commitment to community service and to providing assistance to those who need the expertise and enthusiasm possessed by those within the School. We currently have one of the largest pro bono operations of all law schools in the UK with over half of our students engaging with the wider community; a figure due to expand within the next three years which will place every willing student into a pro bono activity, organised by the School.

Teaching Excellence and Facilities

The School provides innovative and stimulating teaching across all areas of the law curriculum. Academics in the Law School have won the University’s prestigious Teaching Excellence Awards in three out of the last four years and in 2012 96% of our students said they were satisfied with the teaching they received ranking us fourth in the country (National Student Survey).

Research-led teaching is offered across all years of the degree, drawing on internationally excellent research in areas such as Media, Internet and Intellectual Property Law, Commercial Law and Competition Law.

Year Abroad

If you study LLB Law with American Law, Law with European Systems or Law with French Law and Language, you will spend your third year studying abroad. We have links with some prestigious and well-established Law Schools in the US and Europe.
