The College of Law has handed out its first ever LLB qualifications since receiving degree-awarding powers last year.
The 599 students who passed the Graduate Diploma in Law and the Bar Vocational Course or Legal Practice Course received the LLB. Eighty-six students obtained a first-class degree.
Last year (8 May), Lawyer 2B magazine reported exclusively on the College of Law becoming the first non-university-affiliated law school to win degree-awarding status.
Senior academic registrar at the College of Law, Richard de Friend, said: This is a very significant achievement, because the college has purposely set an extremely demanding threshold for the award of first-class degrees.
The colleges new status was granted by the Privy Council following a review by the Quality Assurance Agency and a recommendation to the Department for Education and Skills.
College of Law rival BPP Law School is still waiting to find out if it has secured similar degree-awarding powers.
