Description

Combining law with studies in another subject can be an excellent way to develop knowledge and skills that will not only make you a better lawyer but, should you not be interested in a legal career, can act as an excellent foundation for careers in other areas, such as banking, the civil service and management. It also allows you to introduce variety into your studies, as well as contextualising your legal knowledge within a business, political or cultural context. Other subjects can also reinforce your legal knowledge, for example business studies deepening understanding of company law and political studies improving understanding of constitutional and administrative law.
The Law with French degree is completed in two four-term years (or in two years and three months for September entrants) and will help you to become a confident, competent lawyer, able to practise almost anywhere in the world. Law with French is an English ‘qualifying law degree’.

Course programme

Combining law with a foreign language increases employability in light of the increasingly international nature of legal practice. For example, Spanish is vital to business and commerce with, and in, South America and French is key for interaction not only with France (Paris is, with London, an important legal centre) but also, amongst other places, Switzerland, Monaco, Luxembourg, Belgium and many parts of Africa.The language element of this combined degree is offered to beginners and to those already in possession of some knowledge of French, allowing students to foster and/or maintain their capacities in a foreign language.With an English ‘qualifying law degree’ from Buckingham you will be recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (formerly the Law Society) and the Bar Standards Board as qualified to be exempt from the academic stage of training for entry into the legal profession. Every LLB programme at Buckingham (whether single honours or combined honours) provides our graduates with this qualification. Some countries have additional requirements and if you are an overseas student you should confirm exactly what subjects you must take in order to qualify for your jurisdiction. We can usually accommodate these requirements.As a result of studying for the Buckingham LLB you will become proficient in written and oral presentation, perfect your research techniques and learn to solve problems in a logical and structured way.A second class honours degree or better guarantees you a place on our LLM programme in International and Commercial Law, increasing your specialist knowledge and enabling you to acquire two degrees in only three years.Modules available on this course
