Programme overview

A BGlobalSt/LLB(Hons) conjoint allows you to complete a BGlobalSt and an LLB(Hons) in less time than it would take to complete the two degrees separately.

Our interdisciplinary Global Studies programme will expose you to new ways of thinking about the world, develop your competence in another language, and grow your understanding of other cultures and perspectives.

Students who have gained a B+ average or higher across all their Law courses at the completion of LLB Part II will be invited to transfer to the LLB(Hons) programme.

Programme structure

The BGlobalSt/LLB(Hons) usually takes five and a half years to complete.

You will need to complete a total of 735 points, consisting of:

  • 255 points from BGlobalSt courses
  • 465 points from LLB courses
  • 15 points from General Education

In your first year you will need to complete three Stage I core LLB courses, and five Stage I courses from the BGlobalSt. You will continue to take a mix of Law courses and Global Studies courses in each of your second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth years. You will also need to include a General Education course in one of these years.

If you gain a B+ average or higher across all your Law courses at the completion of LLB Part II, you will be invited to transfer to the LLB(Hons) programme. You can then enrol in one additional semester, to complete an extra seminar course and a dissertation.

You will choose from one of four majors for the BGlobalSt component of your conjoint:

You will also take core courses in Global Studies and study a language and a related area of the world. To find out more, see the Bachelor of Global Studies.

You would usually enrol in nine 15-point courses (135 points) each year and undertake your honours component in one semester if you want to complete in five and a half years. You need to maintain a Grade Point Average of 3.5 each year to continue with your conjoint.

You will also need to be selected for the LLB Part II at the end of your first year. Places in Part II are limited and are allocated according to GPA.
