Offers of places for LLB Part II are usually notified around the end of December. If you have not heard by early February you should contact the Faculty of Law.

There are a limited number of places in the LLB Part II programme. If you do not accept your position in the programme by the date specified on the Offer of Place letter, we can NOT guarantee you a place in the programme.  Please see How to accept or decline an offer of place.

Enrol in Classes

If you are a new student to the university, you cannot enrol until you have applied for admission to the LLB Part II programme, have been offered a place and have accepted the offer.

If you are already in the LLB Part II programme as a returning student, you can enrol in your remaining Law Part II courses through SSO from the first Monday in November for the following academic year.

Although you have been admitted to or are returning to the LLB Part II programme, the faculty has limitations on enrolments in many of its courses and does not guarantee you a place in the stream or classes of your choice. Enrol as early as you can to avoid disappointment.

Using your login and password, enrol in your courses via Student Services Online.  You can find out how to read your programme requirements report, view course information and start enrolling in a course through How to view your programme requirements.

For Law School course offerings and timetable information, please see Timetables.

When you have enrolled successfully you can create a statement of fees, which you need to pay by the date indicated.
