Hello,

Just to clarify, does this mean that there were only about a dozen graduates from the single honours law degree (LLB) at your university during the period I am inquiring into?

Hughes L.E., Swansea University

Dear Kat

Thanks for your email.

Based on your criteria of a JACS principle code of M1**, these figures are correct. As a side note, the majority of our law students are assigned to the JACS principle code of M2**, so this could be why the figures received are lower than expected.

Kind Regards
