UNIVERSITY OF THE WITWATERSRAND, JOHANNESBURG

Programme - 3 Year

The Three-year LLB

The three-year LLB programme is aimed at students who already have an undergraduate degree but do not have any law credits. It is therefore best suited to students who make a later decision to pursue a career in law, following the completion of their first undergraduate degree.

The three-year LLB programme is also sometimes chosen by students who wish to specialise in a particular area of law. For example, they may wish to become a specialist in patent law or forensic medical law, and might have attained a degree in engineering/science or medicine first.
