The Certificate in Higher Education in Common Law (CertHE Common Law) from the University of London (UoL) is of international standing. Students can secure a widely recognized qualification in the core legal subjects without committing to the full LLB Degree, but with option to go on to the 2nd year of the LLB Degree programme as it is a direct entry route to the LLB Degree!

The CertHE Common Law is examined to the same standard as the first year of the LLB. Students on the CertHE Common Law will be allowed to register for a minimum of two modules (sixty credits) in the initial academic year and a maximum of four modules (120 credits) per academic year. The subject called Legal Systems & Methods is compulsory for the first year of study. Students who complete the CertHE Common Law (120 credits) will be awarded the CertHE Common Law Certificate and will be able to transfer to year 2 of the Standard Entry LLB. Students who pass 90 credits will also be allowed to transfer the Standard Entry LLB but they will not subsequently be awarded the CertHE Common Law upon achieving 120 credits.

The Core subjects examined on are:

  • Criminal Law                                                                                    30 Credits
  • Public Law                                                                                       30 Credits
