Study Abroad


The City Law School is one of London’s major law schools offering an impressive range of academic and professional courses. This is the first law school in London to educate students and practitioners at all stages of legal education. With three levels of study – undergraduate, postgraduate and professional they offer courses suitable for everyone interested in following a career in law no matter what stage they are or where they are from. In addition, the School also offers a wide range of tailored CPD courses for qualified lawyers and those in associated professions.


Our LL.B. (Hons.) law degree provides you with grounding in law whilst at the same time allowing you develop your own areas of special interest.

We offer an intimate, friendly, and stimulating environment for you to study in. We encourage our students to take part in all areas of the law outside of everyday teaching. We run annual mooting competitions and offer you opportunities to volunteer to take part in Pro Bonowork.

Our LLB is recognised by the Law Society of England and Wales/Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Council/Bar Standards Board as satisfying the initial or academic stage of legal training. This means that once you complete your degree you can go on to either the Legal Practice Course (LPC) if you want to become a solicitor and the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) if you want to embark on a career at the Bar.
