LLB (Hons) Law with International Relations


Put an international perspective on your legal studies with this popular combination.

As a qualifying law degree, it will still exempt you from the academic stage of qualifying as a solicitor or barrister.

The law doesn’t operate in isolation and in this course you’ll gain valuable insights into the global political context of the law as well as the social and cultural aspects of how the legal system functions.

Three-quarters of the course focuses on law, so you’ll learn how law is made and administered, gain an understanding of the criminal justice system and study key aspects of the civil and criminal law.

Subject area
Law, Criminology, Policing, Investigations.

Your career

Graduates in Law with International Relations gain skills and knowledge that are high demand from employers across a range of different fields. Many of our students go on to enjoy successful careers as solicitors after completing their legal studies through the Legal Practice Course (LPC) and obtaining a training contract with a law firm. Some become barristers, going on to take the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) and then obtaining Pupillage in barristers’ chambers. This can lead to a tenancy as a self-employed barrister, or you can practise as an employed barrister.
