At Arden University, we offer you the opportunity to study your way. Want to study your course entirely online from anywhere in the world? Then our online learning courses offer you the chance to do just that. Plus, you’ll have the flexibility to create your own study schedule that fits around your personal and professional life when you study law online with us.

If you’d prefer to attend lectures and tutorials at one of our study centres in London, Manchester or Birmingham then our blended learning courses build in two days a week of face-to-face tuition with your course tutor and classmates, complemented by around 25 hours of online study.  

Whichever route you choose, you can continue to work alongside your studies, either full or part-time, to ensure that you don't need to put your life on hold while achieving your qualifications.

  • If you’re just at the start of your career, our law bachelor’s courses provide a comprehensive overview of the core skills you’ll need to get your professional life headed in the right direction. With degree specialisations covering the practise of law, as well as combined degrees with business, psychology, and criminology, you’ll gain the specific knowledge you need to enter the industry that inspires you most.
  • Our LLB (Hons) degree course, which is available at our UK study centres and also as a fully online degree, has been newly updated in 2022 to reflect recent changes to professional practice qualifications in the UK. This course gives you the opportunity to choose specific degree pathways, such as preparing for a career as a solicitor by opting for course modules that cover the knowledge required for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1). Alternatively, you may want to take a pathway that prepares you for a Bar Practice Course if you wish to qualify as a barrister in the future.
  • We also offer an LLM in Professional Legal Practice, designed to impart academic legal knowledge and professional legal skills, all while preparing you to sit both parts of the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE 1 and SQE 2). This course gives both law and non-law graduates the opportunity to pursue a career as a solicitor, and will provide you with the research, employability, and career development skills you need to succeed.
  • Arden University degrees are reviewed quarterly to ensure what you are learning is as up to date as possible and that what you learn meets the specific needs of industry and of you, the student, and we’ll help you decide how best to put your degree to use.
  • These courses offer you the opportunity to understand legal systems in the UK and further afield, as well as explore in more detail topics such as counterterrorism, prison systems, racism, and parole. Whatever mode you choose to study, be that online or on campus, you will develop your academic confidence and critical thinking skills. 
  • Before getting started with any degree, it’s nice to know exactly who you’ll be learning from. Arden University’s School of Law is led by Samira Hussain, and is staffed by a group of experienced, qualified, and enthusiastic lecturers who design our courses alongside industry professionals and with input from our industry partners.
