The students will have the necessary skills to work in a financial services role

Financial services organisations or departments looking for high calibre, motivated and industry aware employees are being invited to recruit students from Nottingham Law School’s new LLB (Hons) Law for Financial Services (In-company) degree.

The course sees undergraduate students spend their first two years at Nottingham Law School completing the foundation subjects of the Qualifying Law Degree and gaining the skills needed to handle insurance, banking and investment work, before joining a company in a financial services role for their final year.

Employers taking on students will benefit from their sector-specific legal and financial services skills and knowledge, and will also have the opportunity to shape parts of the degree course to suit the ongoing needs of their business.

Companies will get an employee who is very capable and interested in the business, they will be regulation aware, risk aware and industry aware.

Brian Harris, Nottingham Law School

Brian Harris, academic lead for the new course at Nottingham Law School, said: “This degree gives employers the opportunity to choose from the pick of the crop and develop their own talent pipeline.

"These students will be engaged in relevant study at degree level and companies will get an employee who is very capable and interested in the business. They will be regulation aware, risk aware and industry aware.”

Nottingham Law School, part of Nottingham Trent University, is one of the largest law schools in the UK and has a long established international reputation for excellence in legal education. The School pioneered the first Law Sandwich degree in 1968 and now has more undergraduate Law students in year-long placements than any other university.

The LLB (Hons) Law for Financial Services (In-company) degree is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board as a Qualifying Law Degree.
