    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience of studying an LLB online with CG?
    To my knowledge it is the only college which offers this.

    All feedback greatly appreciated!!

    I'm a 1st year student on the Griffith College Online LLB course, so far I'm really enjoying it, the lecturers are excellent and are very helpful, the lectures and done by podcasts and supplemented by notes that are loaded onto moodle, in addition there are online discussion forums and live webinars every month so there are plenty of resources available if your having any difficulties.

    Even though its an online course we have a study group set up and we meet up once a month, so there is student to student interaction as well.

    In my opinion law is very easily adaptable to online learning but you need to have a routine in place, for me it works well as I do a lot of driving and i listen to the lectures every day and read the notes on my ipad, there are weekly activities for every subject and its important to keep up to date with these.

    the course is split 50% of your final mark is for assignments and 50% on the written exams in May, in first year there are the core subjects and in 2nd and 3rd year there are interesting elective subjects you can choose.

    Overall I'm glad I did the course, only for its offered online there is no way I could have committed to a class room based course with work and family commitments, there is way more flexibility studying online and I can work study round my lifestyle.

    If you have any queries please feel free to ask.

    Thanks for the feedback.. I like the sound of 50% assessment. Would an LLB from here look as strong on a CV as one from one of the national Universities for example?

    People generally get offers of LLM places at Trinity with firsts from GCD.

    I believe that the course work element decreaes to 30% by year 3 but I'm open to correction.

    Consider carefully what you want to do, Law is great fun, leads on to the BL course at the Kings Inn but thats about it. You can do an LLM but that's about as much practical use as an LLB, ie not much!

    FE1s (solicitor route) can be done without a law degree.
