University of London Bachelor of Laws Programme (LL.B)
The Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of London (LL.B) is one of the prerequisite qualifications to embark on an illustrious career as a lawyer. The prestigious University of London LLB Degree, established 100 years ago, is the gold standard for Law Degrees. With a distinguished worldwide reputation, the University was the first to offer a degree to external students the world over.
In Malaysia, the LLB programme is fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and recognised by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board of Malaysia (LPQB). After graduating with this LL.B Law degree with the minimum requirements, you may proceed to take the Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) in Malaysia, or the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) in the UK, and after that, join the legal profession as Barristers, Solicitors, and judges.
If you should decide to pursue careers other than in the legal field, this internationally recognised Law degree opens doors for you to work in a myriad of industries globally. It is a highly respected qualification in the government and corporate sector. This qualification is highly sought-after in industries such as banking, media, property, business, politics, non-profit organisations (NGO), and many more. Job options would include working as a legal advisor, journalist, legal editor, mediator, or arbitrator. It would also come in handy should you decide to be a social advocate. Public listed companies and most large firms would have an in-house legal department, where having a law degree would make you an essential part of the team.
Graduate Entry Route
At ATC College, we also have a flexible structure for those of you who have a degree or equivalent in another field, and may already be working. You may apply for the Graduate Entry Route, which gives you an exemption of up to 3 subjects for eligible students. However, if you opt to do the Graduate Entry Route, you will not be eligible to become Advocates and Solicitors in Malaysia. The Graduate Entry Route is a fast track for those who would like to read law to enhance their career prospects. You may opt to complete 3 modules a year for 3 years. And you can choose to study full time or part-time.
This 3-year degree programme requires students to complete 4 subjects each year, with a total of 12 subjects. There will be a mixture of compulsory modules and optional modules that you may take according to your preference. Property Law, EU Law, and Equity & Trusts modules are mandatory for those who wish to obtain a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD). And for those who want to sit for the Certificate of Legal Practice (CLP) examination, it is mandatory to take Property Law, and Equity & Trusts modules. For full-time students, you must complete the course within 6 years of your initial registration with the university. As for part-time students, you will be given 7 years to complete the degree programme.
The external examinations by the University of London are held worldwide in May/June and in October every year. Students must pass all modules before they can proceed to the next level. In Malaysia, the exams are conducted by the Malaysian Examination Syndicate. Students must register by January each year to sit for the exams.

Reading Law has always been an interesting and enjoyable experience if you have passion in it. Nevertheless, it is undeniable that taking up the LLB exam is never easy. Reading and doing well in exam is inseparable and I used to struggle with my heavy workload at the beginning of my intermediate and therefore, as a student, there are some “general rules” in which we must abide to in order to excel in our exams.
Firstly, it is important that you attend each and every lecture, tutorial as well as every SPS. Attending lecture is crucial in our initial understanding of the subject matter. It is advisable that you should have done some prereadings whereby the subject matter will get more difficult as you go further.
Secondly, make sure you submit extra scripts in order to enhance your understanding of the subject matter. Doing assignments helps you to think critically! In addition, it is advisable that you do some further readings to enhance your knowledge on the particular topic.
Thirdly, this is fundamental to reading law. You must truly understand what you are reading! Never move on until you have truly understand the issue in question.
These general rules are applicable throughout your entire degree and it is definitely administratively workable given that we always have a bunch of dedicated and awesome lecturers who are always there for us should we have problems in our studies!
Nevertheless, with general rules always come exception; you are definitely not expected to study for 24 hours every day. It would be good if you could join societies which would help you to let your hair down and make your university life meaningful. I joined Rotaract Club during my Intermediate and it was fun and enjoyable! It is important that as a law student should be an all-rounder as well whereby this will improve not only your communication skills but social networking which is essential to our future career.

(Final Part I)
I want to begin by saying thank you, because that’s probably the biggest word I could think of to fit all my overwhelming feelings.
First and foremost, I would like to thank my astoundingly supportive family and my loved ones for my achievement. Thank you for always believing in me. Your faith in me is what propels me to strive for the best, driving me to work harder.
And to my amazing friends, it is always a pleasure to study and learn together with such lovely and engaging people.
To be considered for the highest achiever in Part 1 is truly an honour. With this I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to all my tremendously inspiring lecturers in ATC whom maximised the time I had with

Top Student for 2010 Bachelor of Laws, University of London
First and foremost, I thank God for the grace and mercy He has shown me. I wouldn’t be where I am today if not for His constant blessings
Doing law happened for me simply because I talked too much! My family and friends often suggested that I should take it up because I was a very talkative person and loved to debate. And so I did. ATC gave the opportunity to “talk” by participating in moot competitions and many other activities that helped make me a holistic person instead of someone glued to her books 24/7. For me, learning law has been immensely interesting and I am glad that I decided to do it. Contrary to popular belief, I can tell you that law is anything BUT boring.
Achieving a 1st Class on the LLB programme was not an easy task. Many people have asked me, “How did you do it?” The most important thing is to have a positive attitude coupled with a passion to learn and the belief that you will succeed. If you believe that you can do it, and take the right steps to achieve it, anything is possible. There is an American proverb that goes “Success is a ladder you cannot climb with your hands in your pockets”. Thus, putting in the hours learning, having the ability to think critically as well as asking the right questions are essential in addition to being disciplined and committed.
Many people have been instrumental in my success:
To my family, thank you for your endless love and support, in helping me gain perspective and encouraging me in all my undertakings. You give me the confidence to push myself without allowing fear of failure to hold me back. You have been there for me through the ups and downs with words of comfort and great food! I couldn’t have done it without you
To my teachers, no words of thanks could suffice to express my gratitude for all the time and effort you have invested in me. You have instilled curiosity and motivation in me to learn, grow and succeed. Thank you for answering my never-ending questions generously and patiently, for your continuous support and dedication in guiding me in the path towards excellence. Your patience, support, encouragement and advice are immeasurable and has helped me fulfill my potential. I truly appreciate all that you have done.
To my fellow graduates and friends, I’ve had an amazing time getting to know you and cherish the years we’ve had together. Hopefully, the friendships that we have made here will last a lifetime and we will continue to be there for each other in our future endeavors. In many ways, we’ve helped each other survive these last three years.

Norman Vince Peale once said, “Change your thoughts and change your world”. Many people whom I’ve crossed paths with have asked me countlessly ‘Why law?’. My answer to them is rather simple; when I was 7 my dearest grandfather told me that I would be a great lawyer as I was (and still am) extremely talkative. I chose law for my first degree because I had the passion for it. Law to me is truly vivid and humanised. It is the dual personality that law has which attracts my attention. On one hand, one is propelled to abide by it but on the other, it is floating in the air, waiting to be changed to accommodate the present social norms.
However, the most amazing feature that it inherited is its effortless ability to secure a balance between both. Not only does it give orders but it maintains peace within the society. Truly, I would have to thank my grandfather for instilling the thought of reading law in me, consequently leading to my success today. Not only did it help me to achieve my dream of changing my world but it also allowed me a chance of a lifetime to contribute to the legal world! ”
To achieve what I’ve achieved in the External Programme comes with plenty of discipline, commitment plus determination. Nonetheless, passion in the subject matter itself remains the centre of it all. With passion comes patience and that is one way of cultivating moral values. The reality is, studying law not only allows me to comprehend matters from a different perspective but it also embraces the creativity that was once hidden in me. It basically shifts me out of my old equilibrium into a new one. I would say seeing one through these intellectual changes isn’t easy and thus, I would like to thank those who had seen me through it all. I would like to give thanks to my family members for having so much faith in me.
However, none of this would have been possible without the dedication and the constant support by the amazing lecturers in ATC. Therefore, sincere and heartfelt gratitude must be given to the experienced lecturers in culminating in the excellent results I achieved in my LL.B and I would like to take this opportunity to say ‘Lecturers, you all are truly amazing!
Above all, I truly thank God for granting me such an amazing gift. I believe in ‘Ask and it shall be given to you. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be opened to you’ (Matthews 7:7). I now am fully prepared to face the upcoming challenges ahead of me in fulfilling my destiny

My achievement is the result of the combined efforts of the people around me. I thank my family for their unwavering support and for being my pillar of strength. I would also like to convey my deepest gratitude to the lecturers of ATC. Your relentless efforts and guidance throughout the years have brought me to where I am today. ATC is where I have spent the best three years of my life. Thanks to my friends and college mates, there was never a dull day in college, even if it means having lectures during the weekend! Thank you, my friends for making law school such a joyful place to be in and for inspiring me to greater height.
Never once have I regretted coming to ATC, for I have gained much more than a formal education here. What makes ATC different than other private law schools is its strong support of its students’ involvement in extra-curricular activities. I am one of the beneficiaries of such support. I have gained and learned much from my involvement in Rotaract Club and mooting through the support of ATC. ATC’s holistic approach towards educating its students is what makes it a great law school..

I would also like to thank the Lord for helping me achieve such an unexpected result. Last but not least, a great deal of thanks also to all my friends back in college for the help and support they had given me. Reading law wouldn’t be so interesting without you guys!
To all the people who have helped me throughout my LL.B course thus far, I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.
