About the Programme

The Cave Hill LL.B. programme (Bachelor of Laws) is designed to provide a thorough, liberal and professional education for persons who contemplate the practice of law. It is also geared towards those individuals who participate in other ways in the administration of justice, or those who deal in public and private affairs where sound knowledge of law and legal method are valuable. 

Starting in September 2020 Cave Hill Law will seek to offer the first year of its LLB both in the traditional, face-to-face mode and also online.  The latter would allow students to complete their Level I studies at home, and they would be permitted to do so over either a single year or two-year period.  Students who complete their Level I online will be required to attend the Cave Hill Campus for the second and third years of their programme, in a face-to-face modality.  For more on the online option for Level I of the LL.B., click here
