Phenomenal facilities

As a student, you'll have access to a huge range of state-of-the-art facilities including our purpose-built Problem-Based Learning (PBL) suite and a fully equipped mock courtroom.

Committed to equality

We are proud to hold an Athena SWAN Bronze award in recognition of the work we do to support gender equality.

Qualifying Law Degrees

Our LLB degrees are Qualifying Law Degrees (QLD)*, accredited by the Bar Standards Board and Solicitors Regulation Authority.

*The Solicitors Regulation Authority is making changes to the system of qualification in England and Wales. These may affect the status of 'Qualifying Law Degrees' for all Law Schools.

Our courses

Here at York, we offer a 3-year undergraduate LLB and a 2-year graduate LLB (Senior Status). Our 2-year programme is aimed at graduates in other disciplines who want to convert to a law course.
