STUDYING LAW IN THE UK
We are proud to be partnered with some of the best law schools in the country. Whether you are looking to study an LLB (qualify-
ing law degree) or an LLM (Master of Laws), our UK partner universities offer plenty of excellent programs. The LLB, or qualifying
law degree, is the UK equivalent of a Canadian LLB or JD and is completed at the undergraduate level. The standard LLB is a
3-year program; however, some universities offer a 2-year “graduate entry” or “senior status” LLB for students who have previously
completed an undergraduate honours degree. Across the Pond’s expert student advisors have considerable experience in advising
candidates on the appropriate options to select according to your academic and professional profile.

The degrees offered at our partner universities are recognized internationally. When you return to Canada to start a bar admis-

                  academic understanding and a working knowledge of European culture first
                 hand. The University of Essex was my first choice because it is well known for
                  its work in both politics and philosophy. I settled in quickly, especially as my
                   school held a welcome reception for all new students (complete with drinks
                 and a game of pool with our tutors in Top Bar!) and provided us with mentors.

                       Throughout my time at the University, my academic circle has been
                 outstanding and provided me with guidance, assistance and a path to shaping
                 my academic life here at Essex and beyond. I especially enjoy my philosophy
                   modules and the different ways in which I am taught; lectures provide the
                intellectual framework I need to explore issues and my classes are run in a way
                         that allow all to engage, discuss and explore content material.”
