LLB Senior Status


All of the undergraduate Law degrees offered at Queen’s are recognised as qualifying law degrees, which means that they are accredited by legal professional bodies in England and Wales and Northern Ireland. The Senior Status degree is particularly popular with Canadians as it allows graduates to qualify with a law degree in only 2 years.
