At ARU London, you can take your first step towards becoming a solicitor or barrister, as our course will qualify you for the next stage of your legal training. You will study both academic and practical aspects of the law, which not only prepares you for a legal career but will also give you many skills that are highly valued in other occupations. 

As you go through our core modules, you'll be developing key knowledge of fundamental features of the UK and EU legal systems, and the context in which the law operates. All this, while engaging in critical analysis with peers, solving legal problems, and undertaking independent research, flexing your ability to construct complex legal arguments.

Graduation with a 2:2 or above with a degree covering these subjects is required by the Bar Standards Board for entry to the vocational stage of training to become a Barrister. Our LLB also covers the subjects which are examined by the Solicitor’s Qualifying Exam 1 (SQE 1); the first step in professional training to become a Solicitor.
