Industrial focus

As a law student, you’ll build contacts and insight through the Southampton City Law Network. Set up by the University to promote the interests of local law students, law teachers, lawyers and other professionals, the Network holds regular events and ensures up-to-date teaching, learning and professional knowledge.

Employability is at the heart of this course and students have a range of opportunities to put their learning into practice. Our exciting mooting programme includes a moot court room where students practice their knowledge and legal skills.

Students are able to hold mooting competitions and apply their legal skills in research, argument and presentations. Also, the course is designed with a flexible route providing you with additional opportunities to pursue personal and professional development.

Following graduation, many students proceed to the vocational stage of legal training, either the Legal Practice Course towards becoming a solicitor, or the Bar Professional Training Course for those wishing to progress to a career as a barrister. A significant number of law students pursue careers in business, finance, compliance, the police service and paralegal work.

Graduate quote

Steph Esther Mekwuye

“On the LLB course your ability to research is a core skill. I knew how to find relevant cases, legislations, news, journals and how to use the information for my assessments. I learnt to compile presentations in no time; I would brace myself and stand behind a podium to present to over 100 people. Since helping others comes quite naturally to me, this job was just right.

“During my studies I decided I wanted to create a student forum, a place where law students could exchange ideas and debate different points of view, so I founded the Debating Society in my second year. Students were able to come together and chat about anything from Facebook antics to intellectual property rights to religion!

“I also became a member of the Justice Student Network and attended their conferences in London. I remember returning home after these gatherings with a buzz and a sense of achievement, and I was over the moon when Roger Smith, Director of Justice, accepted my invitation to visit the University.

"Studying law has been fulfilling and I am now a very happy LLB graduate!”
