The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) offers education in fundamental legal concepts and subjects, as well as a wider liberal-arts education. In 2004-05, the LLB became a four-year programme, in line with recommendations made by government-appointed consultants. Under the 2012 curriculum reform, the LLB remains as a 4-year programme.
The LLB comprises a professional core which equips students with a solid foundation in legal knowledge, and elective courses which allow students exposure to the broader context in which the law operates. Students will have the opportunity to obtain a minor in a non-law area, or to obtain specialization in a specific area of law.
