The LLB(Hons) is made up of 540 points and involves a student completing the LLB programme and an additional 20-point honours seminar course (usually as part of their Part III year) and a 40-point dissertation in the semester immediately following their Part IV year.
It will take a minimum of nine semesters to complete all of the requirements for the LLB(Hons) degree, unless a student is completing a conjoint degree. In that case it will take a minimum of 11 semesters. The number of semesters required can be reduced by one if the dissertation is completed through Summer School immediately following their Part IV year.
Please note: Entry requirements may change each year.

If students do not get into Honours by invitation after the completion of their Part II courses but their overall performance improves in later years, they can apply for Honours via the Law School Student Centre in early December of any year after successful completion of Part II.
The application will be approved if the student's Grade Point Average over all of their LLB courses is above the Honours entry standard and there are places available.
