The Law Programmed at Oxford Brookes University has a number of distinctive features and aims to provide the highest levels of the student experience, whilst at the same time ensuring that students who graduate from the Programmed are able to do so with a degree incorporating the seven foundations of legal knowledge modules, as specified by the Bar Standards Board of England and Wales, which exempts them from the academic stage of training should they decide to pursue careers as barristers in England and Wales.

This qualification of LLB Law from Oxford Brookes University, subject to any other requirements stipulated by Sri Lanka Law College in the future, also meets the admission requirements of the Sri Lanka Law College for entry onto the Attorney-at-Law professional qualification.

The degree will also provide students with the foundational academic legal knowledge that will assist entry into other legal careers.

BCAS is a market leader in the private education sector in the field of law, with excellent student performance in subsequent Law College examinations.

Both institutions have a strong focus on employability and outstanding student experience. Both partners are keen to maintain relevant and current law program to meet the needs of the Sri Lankan students and the law market.
