Program Information

School:Northumbria University
Faculty:Faculty of Law
Degree:Bachelor; Distance
Field of Study:Law (LL.B, J.D., B.C.L.)
Description:There is no attendance requirement for the Open Learning programme therefore, it is ideal for those who are unable to attend university to study. The Open Learning LL.B (Hons) programme is designed to provide students with a Qualifying Law Degree that gives exemption from the academic stage of legal education to become a solicitor or barrister. Upon completion of the degree, you may apply to join the Legal Practice Course (LPC) or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC), which are the vocational training courses that must be undertaken to become a solicitor or barrister.

Learning is developed through study materials delivered over the internet. Each module has a set of materials, a study schedule and answer guidance available on its own website (an eLearning Portal site). PowerPoint presentations, notes, updates and useful assessment guidance are also posted on the module sites. Our most recent innovation in our distance learning LLB degree, is teaching through the use of webcasts. The webcasts are short videos which explore essential legal aspects of a particular legal subject, and students are able to use them to navigate through a series of written and recorded materials, with access to linked documentation and other related materials. From September 2012, the webcasts will be available for the eight core modules on the Open Learning programme. You can see what they look like by clicking on the link to the right. You will also have access to legal databases which allows you to read primary legal sources such as legislation and case law, as well as secondary legal sources such as journal articles and commentaries.
