The University of London International Programmes Laws (LL.B.)



The University of London has been awarding law degrees throughout the world for over one hundred years.  The University of London was the first British University to award Common Law degrees.  Before Oxford, Cambridge and other British Universities, The University of London was the first to establish common law departments (under John Austin & John S. Mill at University College), the first to admit women, the first to establish the study of Common Law Jurisprudence in England,  the first in Great Britain whose qualifications were not based on religious criteria, and the first to establish degree programmes via distance learning.

Today, the University of London has over 45,000 students worldwide who are registered with the University of London International Programmes.  Over 12,000 students world-wide are registered with the International Programmes in Laws.

Whether earned as a full time (internal) student or as an International Programmes student, the University of London law degree are of equal standard and quality.  Statute 66(2) of the University of London expressly codifies this fact.  Furthermore, the General Bar Council of England and Wales fully recognize the law degree awarded through the International Programmes for purposes of meeting the academic stage of legal education.  

According to the University of London :

"Candidates granted degrees and other awards shall have attained the same academic standard irrespective of mode or place of study or examination. There is only one University of London degree..."

Many of the colleges of the University of London, such as the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE), Queen Mary College, University College (UCL), Birkbeck College, The School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Royal Hollaway and other colleges formulate the content, course of study and assessment for the degrees awarded by The University of London International Programmes. 

Additionally, for those students interested in entering the legal profession in the United States, the University of London LL.B. degree is recognized by many major ABA approved law schools in the United States - for purposes of meeting their educational requirements of Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree programs.   Many states will permit graduates of US ABA LL.M. programs to take their bar examinations.

(ICLS) is a tutorial institution devoted to helping University of London International Programmes' students prepare for their University of London law examinations.  ICLS is not part of the University of London; however, ICLS specializes in teaching the law subjects tested by the University of London.

ICLS is at the leading edge of educational technology in terms of offering online lectures to its students not only in the US and UK, but world-wide.  The advent of the computer and internet have narrowed the gap between those who can study law and those who can only dream about it.

Message From The Pro-Vice Chancellor University of London International Programmes

ICLS Executive Director Sworn Into U.S. Supreme Court

"ICLS is a world class
e-learning center offering an outstanding opportunity to earn a British law degree from your home or office."

"ICLS gave me the edge to succeed in the study of law."

Laura Ruberto, ICLS and UOL LL.B. Graduate 2009

Barrister and Solicitor at Law (Upper Ontario Bar)

2012 ICLS Graduate


"Through ICLS I was able to accomplish what many struggle to do alone - get my LLB from UOL International Programmes. The help and guidance I received from actual University of London tutors was what made this possible. Anyone thinking about pursuing a degree with UoL should consider ICLS. The inability to properly answer exam questions is the most common cause of failure and ICLS provides what the University cannot - feedback and criticism of writing technique when attempting an examination question. The lectures are also an asset to anyone who struggles to read and retain an abundance of reading material. Thanks to ICLS I am now a UOL graduate, and couldn't be prouder!"

Alexx Allen - Chattanooga, TN USA

2012 ICLS and UoL LL.B. Graduate

"You have made it much easier for me to begin revising for my examinations in June.  I know that it must have been an exhausting weekend, and appreciate your efforts all the more!  Your written material is excellent, and will assist me in organizing my studies.  I hope to have the pleasure of participating in a weekend next year..."

ICLS Writing Workshop Equips Students

"I just wanted to say Thank You to you and your team for executing such a productive weekend...  Saturday was very intensive and by the end of the writing session I felt confident in myself, as I learned the techniques only ICLS could have taught. I now know what the examiners are looking for and most of all I understand how to organize the vast information I have per subject. You were organized, enthusiastic and addressed relevant issues. I am looking forward to the March Seminar. Thank you once again."
