The University of London LLB - leading the global legal student community
The University of London Bachelor of Laws (LLB)
has the world’s largest student law community, with more than more than 19,000 students worldwide. For over 120 years students in Sri
Lanka have had the opportunity to study for a University of London degree. Today
there are nearly 1,200 students studying law in Sri Lanka.
The University of
London Undergraduate Laws Programme is governed academically by the law schools
of six University of London Colleges. Five of these
Colleges (LSE, UCL, Queen Mary, Kings, Birkbeck) are ranked in the top 50 in
Europe for law (QS European Rankings 2015).
The University of
London LLB has been updated over the years to remain relevant to current needs.
Simon Askey, Director of the University of London
Undergraduate Laws Programme, says: “We have made changes in terms of
increasing flexibility to make it easier to study while you are working and to
allow people to study at their own pace.”
A key goal of the degree is to develop students’ ability to think
like a lawyer. Simon Askey explains: “The
course materials are structured to help students develop these skills so that
by the end of the programme they know how to find the law, what the law is and

graduates in Sri Lanka have the opportunity to get involved with the local alumni
chapter and attend regular events hosted by the University of London. Simon
Askey explains: “They're very important in bringing together recent
graduates with older graduates which creates a valuable network for alumni,
which is particularly valuable for those those working in the legal profession.”
Simon Askey attends graduation celebrations
hosted by local teaching institutions in Sri Lanka and around the world. “Not
all students can come to the graduation ceremony in London, and
there's nothing people like more than their whole family being able to
celebrate with them. It's important to make the celebrations of student
achievement truly global, as well as the opportunity to study.”
