LLB European Legal Studies
UCAS code: M120
The LLB Law (ELS) degree provides all the features of a normal LLB law degree, with the additional benefit of University study and experience of one language. Students spend a year abroad at one of our partner Universities in Europe, where teaching will be in a European language. The language you study in will be the one which you have been studying as part of your degree at Lancaster – you will undertake both law and language modules as part of your degree. For information about which languages are available for study as part of this degree, please visit the Department for European Languages and Culture (DELC).
This intellectually challenging programme, which offers a combination of language skills, legal elements and a year abroad, gives students experience and expertise which make them more attractive to employers, and benefits them in their future careers.
LLB Law(ELS) students spend the third year of their degree abroad. They study the equivalent of four units of law courses at their host institution, choosing from a wide range of courses to suit their own interests and aptitudes. For the purpose of degree classification these four units count as one module at Lancaster University, Law 333.

LLB Law (ELS) students study the same core law subjects as LLB students, and obtain the same professional exemptions. However, there are several special features to this four year degree which enhance its quality.
Law students studying on the LLB Law (ELS) programme may also take criminology modules.
*Optional courses offered may change slightly from year to year, and some options may not run every year. Please check on application.
The special features of the degree have an important impact on its quality.
First, the degree offers important opportunities for personal growth. LLB Law (ELS) students encounter challenges in their year abroad not experienced by others, developing their character. They find this an inspiring period in their lives where they encounter interesting people, explore another culture and discover new places.
Secondly, there are many academic benefits. Students who can master the legal intricacies of not one but two legal systems, in two different languages demonstrate an ability to deal with a broader range of varied and complicated legal issues.
Thirdly, LLB Law (ELS) students develop a high level of competence in a second language, nurtured by two years of University level studies and the invaluable experience of living and working in a different language environment for a year. In today's transnational world, the ability to speak and write in a modern European language other than English is especially important. Skill in a second language will make you significantly more attractive to employers.
Career Prospects for LLB (ELS) Graduates
The LLB (ELS) programme will provide you with the academic foundation necessary to qualify as an UK lawyer. The increasing importance of EU Law, international law and a second language in everyday life is especially valued by employers, at home and abroad. It is particularly valuable for those considering a career in law and allied professions, management and business, and central and local government.
