The course, unique to Cyprus, blends the English legal heritage with the current Cyprus law. The course has been designed in such a way so that non-Greek speakers can avoid all instruction in Cyprus law, be taught entirely in the English language and follow a regular UK LLB curriculum.
The theory of law is well-represented with two modules (Thinking and Arguing Law, and Jurisprudence), charting 2,500 years of legal philosophy from Plato to Aquinas, Bentham to Herbert Hart. These, together with other key modules, such as The Classical Foundations of Modern Law, teach students the latin legal terminology and knowledge of its derivation.
The compulsory module European Union Law is supplemented with EU Business Law for those wishing to acquire detailed knowledge of the single market and the regulation of anti-competitive conduct. International Law is well-served with modules in both Public International and Private International Law. In addition, human rights modules examine not only the European and International, but also the municipal legal architecture in this most vital of fields. Finally, conscious of Cyprus’ continued international outlook and the increasing transnationalisation of legal relations, a module is offered in Comparative Law.
The LLB at UCLan Cyprus is the only Law degree on the island validated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board of England and Wales. Exclusive in Cyprus, LLB graduates from UCLan Cyprus shall obtain the same qualifying law degree, with identical rights, privileges and entitlements, as any LLB graduate from an English or Welsh university. As a result, our graduates will have the opportunity to sit their professional law exams in London, for instance, without having to return to university in order to obtain a qualifying law degree first. During these challenging economic times, globally, it is important to know that a UK qualifying law degree is accepted by (law) professional bodies in a number of different countries around the world, including Cyprus.
Additionally, the LLB has also been recognised as a qualifying law degree by the Cyprus Bar Council.
