This subject/programme is accredited by The Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Bar Standards Board. Please note the following:
Module Selection: You should note that to have your award recognised as a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) you must study Law modules of not less than 240 credits in a 360 credit degree programme and that the coverage of Foundations of Legal Knowledge subjects must amount to not less than 180 credits. Those of you wishing to achieve a QLD must satisfy both the Keele requirements for the award of a single honours degree as well as the requirements of the professional bodies.
Regulations: Your programme has professional accreditation and while there are no specific regulations, which you have to agree to abide by, you should be aware that the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) has a responsibility under the Solicitors Act 1974 to ensure that those who are admitted to practice as solicitors are of satisfactory character and suitability (SRA weblink). The Bar Standards Board applies similar criteria to those seeking admission as barristers. If you intend to seek professional qualification you will therefore be required to complete a screening process before you are admitted as a solicitor or barrister. This may include a request to the University for a reference as to your suitability to practice. Any such reference must include information about any finding of academic misconduct (cheating or plagiarism).
