                            summative assessment across the
                            programme. The key skills D2 and D3
                            underpin the programme as a whole and are
                            assessed in all modules.

12. Programme structure (levels, modules, credits and progression requirements)
12. 1 Overall structure of the programme
The LLB (Hons) Programme comprises four thirty-credit modules in each year. The core
modules comprise the foundations of legal knowledge required by the JASB (Joint Academic
Stage Board) of the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board.

Full Time Three Year Mode
Year One
In the first year, two compulsory thirty credit year long modules are taken, English Legal System
and Legal Method, which are the building blocks of the LLB Programme. In addition, in the first
year, there are compulsory thirty credit year long law modules which introduce two of the
substantive legal subjects, Public Law and the Law of Contract.

Year Two
Three compulsory modules are taken in the second year: Tort, European Union Law and
Criminal Law. In addition students choose either Consumers and the Law or Criminal and Civil
Justice. Students are able to give their programme a distinctive character by the choice of
options in the second and third years. A choice of Consumers and the Law in the second year,
together with perhaps Employment and Discrimination Law and Business Organisations in the
third year will give it a commercial focus, whereas a choice of Criminal and Civil Justice in the
second year taken with, for example Child and Family Law and Immigration Law and Human
Rights, will shift the focus towards the relationship between the individual and the law.

Year Three
As well as the core modules in Land Law and Equity & Trusts, third year students study two level
three thirty credit law optional modules.

14. Information about assessment regulations

The University’s assessment regulations which can be found at www.mdx.ac.uk/regulations
apply to the programme.

There are also special considerations concerning assessment for the LLB programme, as
follows:

The core modules Public Law, Law of Contract, Criminal Law, Tort, EU Law, Equity and Trusts
and Land Law as well as the two compulsory modules taken in the first year, English Legal
System and Legal Method, are deemed as ‘non-compensatable’ modules.

Award of LLB (Hons) degree and professional exemption:
Professional exemption is not automatic if:
    A student has gained the degree by credit transfer
    Has taken more than four years to obtain a full-time degree (or six years to obtain a part-
       time degree) or
    A student is condoned in a compulsory core module.

15. Placement opportunities, requirements and support
Students may choose to undertake a placement year during their third year, and then return to
Middlesex for the final (fourth) year. The Placement Office provides information and guidance
on obtaining placements, but the student must be pro-active in finding a suitable placement.
Students must complete 240 credits before starting a placement and obtain the written
permission of the LLB Programme Leader. This will only be given if the placement is of
sufficient legal standing.
A placement adds an extra year onto the LLB, which has to be completed in four years unless
the student has obtained permission from the Solicitors Regulation Authority/Bar Standards
Board to exceed this limit. In any one year, a maximum of six students may do the placement

year.
16. Future careers: how the programme supports graduates’ future career development
The LLB degree is a qualifying law degree for purposes of exemption from the academic stage
of legal professional qualification under the requirements of the Joint Academic Stage Board of
the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board. However, not all graduates of the
LLB programme enter the legal profession. Many find employment in, for example, local
government and business.
