This Qualifying Law Degree enables you to undertake further legal training to become a solicitor or barrister. The course also provides essential skills required in industry and, given the flexibility of distance learning, allows you to combine study with work and other commitments.

Distance-learning students come from a variety of backgrounds. They bring a stimulating mix of experiences to the Law School. Tuition is offered during intensive teaching weekends each academic year. Although attendance is not compulsory, many students find these to be a key element in their progression and ultimate success.

Wherever you live in the world, it is possible to study with Nottingham Law School and receive the same support as UK-based students. You will be welcome to join us at the intensive teaching weekends, but they are not compulsory.
