Students on the Senior Status LLB will attend a two-week International Legal Studies immersion programme in downtown Toronto, Ontario, the content of which has been informed by the involvement of Magic Circle and Am Law 100 firms. As well as broadening your understanding of the complexities of international legal practice from the setting of a dynamic, international business hub, this immersive learning experience will explore legal career pathways in Canada as a UK-qualified lawyer. 

In addition to the courses required for a Qualifying Law Degree, Senior Status students can take a range of optional courses including Company Law, Competition Law, and Legal Research and Advocacy, a course designed to enhance your preparation and presentation of written and oral legal arguments, and to develop your understanding and practice of litigation.

The programme offers a breadth of educational opportunity to its students alongside academic depth. Senior Status LLB students are able to maintain their undergraduate academic interests or explore entirely new disciplines, by taking elective subjects from many of the University’s faculties. An interdisciplinary element to your Law degree improves your capacity to appreciate alternative and innovative perspectives, and can demonstrate a multi-faceted skill set to future employers.

The University is part of Northeastern University’s global university network, which includes a number of campus locations in the US and Canada. Northeastern’s American Bar Association-accredited Law School has been instrumental in developing this programme alongside Northeastern University London Law Faculty members with significant professional experience practising in multiple jurisdictions. This Senior Status LLB provides graduates with a legal qualification that has a truly global focus. 


The LLB (Hons) Law with International Legal Studies is a 360-credit, two-year programme. Read more

Students will complete eight compulsory courses, which consist of the seven courses that fulfil the requirements for a Qualifying Law Degree, in addition to a two-week International Legal Studies immersion in Toronto, which will take place during the summer between the first and second years of study.  

Students will also complete four optional courses, which can include further and specialist Law study, elective course choices from any other faculty and a 7,000-word dissertation and viva in the final year.


You will typically experience an average of 10 or more hours of high-quality contact time in each teaching week, in considerably smaller groups than are the norm for UK institutions.  Read more

Teaching and learning takes place in the form of lectures and small group seminars, facilitating the forms of discussion and debate which are advantageous to the study of Law.
