LLB Bachelor of Laws

The LLB programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science is a leading undergraduate law degree, delivered at one of the world's top law schools. In the 2021 QS World University rankings for Law and Legal Studies, LSE Law was ranked 6th (out of 300 worldwide), and 1st in London. The LSE law student body is one of the most cosmopolitan in the world with over 60% international students. You will therefore be joining a cosmopolitan, elite and highly employable band of students should you join the LSE LLB student body.

Double Degree Programme

The Double Degree Programme is open to LLB students at LSE who are in their second year of study. It is during their second year that students apply to participate in the programme. LSE students spend their first two years at LSE, during which they must complete the Law Society/ Bar Council core or 'foundation' subjects if they intend to secure a 'qualifying' degree for professional exemption purposes in England and Wales. If admitted to the double degree programme, LSE students then transfer to Columbia Law School for two years there, the first of which shall, if successfully completed based on the requirements of both LSE and Columbia Law School, satisfy the requirements of their third year at LSE. 

Please note: eligibility is subject to the criteria of Columbia Law School, which may evolve over time. We do not recommend applying to LSE solely with the intention of applying to the double degree programme, as we are unable to guarantee you will be admitted.
