Course Outline

The LLB offers all the subjects currently required for the entrance examinations to the legal professions (solicitors and barristers) in Ireland. Further, by choosing certain subjects, students can also become eligible for exemptions in relation to entry to the legal professions in England and Wales. In addition, all students are required to take a core module designed to equip them with critical legal research, writing and presentation skills. Students will also have the opportunity to tailor their studies to their own requirements by choosing optional modules from a long list of options. The programme is offered during daytime hours and may be taken on a full-time basis over three years. To facilitate those with work responsibilities, students may also take the programme on a part-time basis over four years.
