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 after-hours 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.

Lecture Times

Monday to Thursday evenings, from 17h15 to 21h00. Tests and tutorials may be held on Saturday mornings.


Part-time students write the same final examinations as full-time students. Examinations are held during working hours.

Degree Duration
