Law affects all of our lives and the knowledge of law increases our understanding of the society and the world in which we live. These course programmes provide a liberal education in Law, or in Law combined with another discipline, to promote such an awareness and to allow those who so wish to progress to careers in the legal professions.
You can combine the study of Law with a range of subjects. Approximately two-thirds of the curriculum will focus on Law and one-third on the other subject. All are LLB degrees and all have been accredited by the Law Society and the Bar Council as Qualifying Law Degrees (QLD). This status denotes that Bangor LLB graduates have completed the academic stage of training for the legal professions in England and Wales, and may enter directly onto Legal Practice Courses (LPC) to become solicitors or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) to become barristers.
Combining Law with Accounting and Finance in a Qualifying Law Degree enables you to develop a range of expertise and skills relevant to today’s commercial world. It offers key business skills for those who choose to enter legal practice and who need to manage their own businesses and respond effectively to the business problems of their clients. In response to recent corporate scandals there is an increasing demand for lawyers with accounting and auditing skills that can engage in corporate scrutiny and corporate reconstruction.
The accounting element of the degree introduces you to both internal and external auditing, and lawyers with these additional skills will be very suitable candidates for employment in these lucrative areas of law. In addition it offers excellent preparation for future professional exams for legal and allied professions, and in some cases can lead to professional exemptions.
A range of Accounting and Finance modules is undertaken in conjunction with the compulsory modules in Law.
Bangor University is recognised as a qualifying law degree provider by the Bar Standards Board and this degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
Students have the opportunity to enhance their degree programme and extend their understanding of their degree subject area by spending a period of study at an overseas host Institution. This route is optional and if you choose to follow it, you will extend your period of study from three years to four and will gain an enhanced degree qualification – LLB Law with Accounting and Finance (International Experience). Students will need to pass a specified number of credits* during their year abroad but no credits from that year will feed into their degree.
All LLB degrees have Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) status denoting that Bangor LLB graduates will have completed the academic stage of training for the legal professions in England and Wales.
As all Bangor LLB degrees have QLD status, graduates may enter directly onto Legal Practice Courses (LPC) to become solicitors or Bar Vocational Courses (BVC) to become barristers.
Bangor LLB degree holders are eligible to take the Law Society of Ireland entrance exams: FE-Is.
The degrees address the British, European and global dimensions of contemporary legal development.

Founded in 1884, Bangor University has a long tradition of academic excellence and a strong focus on the student experience. Around 10,000 students currently study at the University, with teaching staff based within fourteen Academic Schools.
The University was founded as a direct result of a campaign in the late nineteenth century for higher education provision in Wales. Funds were raised by public subscription to establish a college of university rank in Bangor. An important feature of its foundation was the voluntary contributions made by local people, including farmers and quarrymen, from their weekly wages over a period of time.
Bangor University is ranked in the top 40 in the UK for research*, according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The REF recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for UK universities.
Bangor University has achieved a Gold Award, the highest rating possible, in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
The TEF assessment took into account teaching quality, learning environment and student outcomes and learning gain. We were judged to deliver consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students and our teaching is of the highest quality found in the UK.
Bangor University is committed to being known globally as The Sustainable University. Much of what we do is based on our desire to bring sustainability to life, whether through our teaching, research or public engagement. We have established The Sustainability Lab to lead on all aspects of sustainability across the University.
Student life at Bangor University is vibrant and diverse. We have more than 200 Students’ Union Clubs and Societies, covering a range of interests, activities and sports, which means there’s something for everyone. Student membership is free, so all our students can take advantage of the extra-curricular opportunities offered. Our Clubs and Societies were named best in the UK at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2019.
Students are given help and support from the moment they arrive. Our Student Services Centreprovides advice and guidance on matters from money and housing to disability support, counselling, dyslexia, study skills and local faith provision. Every year hundreds of second and third year students are trained as Peer Guides to welcome new students to Bangor and provide practical advice to help them settle-in.
The University was originally based in an old coaching inn called the Penrhyn Arms. In 1903, the city of Bangor donated a 10-acre site overlooking the city at Penrallt for a new building, and substantial sums of money were raised by local people to help meet the cost. The foundation stone for this was laid in 1907, and four years later in 1911 the main building was opened, together with some arts and social science buildings and part of the Library.
The Science Departments remained in the Penrhyn Arms for another fifteen years. In 1926 they moved to new purpose-built accommodation which had been constructed with the assistance of funds raised by the North Wales Heroes Memorial.
Today, The University has over 11,000 students and 2,000 members of staff. Bangor University is committed to providing teaching of the highest quality, conducting research of the highest quality, taking good care of its students and playing a full role in the wider community of Wales .
