LLB and Baccalaureus Legum English and German
growing demand in Europe for lawyers qualified in more than one jurisdiction,
the faculty offers a double degree programme involving two years of study at
UCL and two years of study in Germany at the University of Cologne. This programme
leads to the award of both the Bachelor of Laws honours degree from UCL and
the Baccalaureus Legum from the University of Cologne. The Baccalaureus Legum
is not a fully qualifying law degree in Germany but students are given the
opportunity to remain enrolled at the University of Cologne after completing
the LLB and Baccalaureus Legum in order to take the German First State Exam.
Please note that in order to be eligible to enrol on and satisfy all academic
requirements for the German First State Exam, candidates applying on the basis
of UK A level qualifications must have studied mathematics or a natural science
as one of their three A level subjects.
Candidates are required to demonstrate complete fluency in German in addition
to the standard entry requirements. Students enrolled on the M146 programme
are not normally allowed to transfer to another LLB programme at UCL.
Years 1 and 2 of the programme are taken at UCL and are similar to years 1
and 2 of the three-year LLB programme (M100).
