Bachelor of Laws: Part-time (LLB)


The University of KwaZulu-Natal’s (UKZN’s) Part-time LLB Programme offers aspiring legal practitioners a convenient way of obtaining an undergraduate law degree through part-time study. The LLB degree is offered on a part-time basis by the School of Law, via the Centre for Extended Legal Studies, both in Pietermaritzburg and in Durban (Howard College Campus) and provides a flexible option for individuals who are not able to attend lectures during working hours. UKZN’s LLB degree, which is fully accredited by the Council for Higher Education, is the core qualification for legal practitioners (attorneys and advocates) and, in addition, is a valuable qualification for a wide range of other careers in business, public administration and allied fields. Method of teaching: The programme will be delivered primarily by means of online teaching, making use of the University’s online learning platform and applications such as Zoom. This will require students to have access to a stable internet connection and a suitable device, such as a desktop, laptop or smartphone, provided at their own cost. It is not known at this stage whether it will be possible to offer any contact teaching sessions in 2022.

Degree Duration

 The LLB degree can be completed part-time over 12 semesters (six years).
