Bachelor of Laws (LL.B)(N/380/6/0058)(06/2024)(MQA/PA12029)

Join the next generation of future-proof legal professionals


The University of Reading, which is known for producing law graduates who are well-rounded and highly-adaptable, is now offering its Bachelor of Laws programme at its international branch campus in Malaysia, the first and only foreign international branch campus in Malaysia to offer a law degree. The degree is exactly the same that awarded on the UK campus, following the same curriculum and quality standards.

The Reading LLB offered in the UK is recognised by the Legal Professional Qualifying Board (LPQB) in Malaysia for the Certificate in Legal Practice Examination (CLPE).

As a newly-launched programme, the LLB degree offered at the Malaysia campus is subject to full accreditation by Malaysian Qualifications Agency's (MQA) and Legal Profession Qualifying Board.


The law degree offered shall contain a minimum of 12 substantive law subjects which includes the 6 core-subjects. The first and second years of the programme provide the foundation of legal knowledge and are determined by the Solicitors Regulation Authority(SRA). In the final year, students can focus on their interests and select from a range of elective modules.

The Reading LLB provides the perfect balance of academic learning and practical experience. One key aspect of the high-quality learning experience is the applied, problem-solving approach to learning in which students are presented with authentic cases to examine and discuss. Students develop a wide range of soft skills such as presentation, argumentation, negotiations and dispute resolution.


Law students at the University of Reading Malaysia benefit from a modern, state-of-the-art campus with a moot court and legal clinic. Students also have access to the spacious and well-equipped Learning Resource Centre (LRC).


Class sizes on the programme are kept small to maintain a high-quality and personalised learning experience. As a consequence, students benefit from the closer relationships they are able to develop with their lecturers and classmates.


The Reading LLB enables graduates to rise quickly whatever their chosen career. A key benefit of studying the Reading LLB are the diverse career avenues on offer which include but are not limited to:

  • Legal profession
  • Private sector, as a corporate lawyer or legal counsel.
  • Arbitration and mediation
  • Public sector and NGOs
  • Academia


Students will have an opportunity to attend a Summer School on European Law at Reading’s UK campus between Years 2 and 3. Students will experience the historic Foxhill House, home to the School of Law, on the University’s sprawling 130-hectare Whiteknights campus in Reading UK.

Loy Kah Joon

My name is Loy Kah Joon. I am from Johor Bahru and currently studying Bachelor of Laws (LL.B). My career aspiration is to become a criminal lawyer. What I enjoy most about studying at University is the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) which provides a conducive learning environment and working together with friends in both academic and non-academic activities. The tips I would like to share with fellow students are manage your time wisely - do not leave assignments to the last minute and study hard but also remember to enjoy campus life to the fullest.
