The LLB (Graduate Entry) is a two-year, full-time course (National Framework of Qualifications Level 8) in the University of Limerick School of Law that provides a legal education for graduates in disciplines other than law.

The LLB (Graduate Entry) is designed for graduates who wish to add a law degree to their undergraduate training. The course is ideal for non-law graduates who wish to enter the legal profession or for whom a legal qualification would enhance their career prospects.

Law graduates from civil law jurisdictions will find that the course provides a thorough foundation in common law.

Applicants must hold a primary degree (level 8 NQAI) or equivalent in a discipline other than law. 
While places are generally offered to students with a minimum of a 2.2 (2nd class honours grade 2) undergraduate degree, entry onto this course is competitive. Depending on the number of applications, a higher grade of 2.1 (2nd class honours grade 1) in an undergraduate degree may be required to secure a place.

In your application, please provide:

  • Evidence of a minimum 2.2 honours award in your primary degree. UL graduates do not need to upload UL transcripts.
  • If your final award is pending, you will be required to submit evidence of your degree when you receive it to support your application.
  • Copy of Passport.
