About Law at School of Law, University of Leeds

This two-year course is for you if you already have an undergraduate degree in a non-law subject.

The course provides you with the opportunity to learn about the law, both in the traditional sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and in the broader sense of law as a social institution. This is a Qualifying Law Degree* which enables you to progress directly to the vocational stage of legal education should you wish to qualify as a solicitor or barrister in England and Wales. It’s also recognised in a number of other jurisdictions.

You’ll cover the seven foundations of legal knowledge and develop your legal research skills. A wide range of optional modules will also enable you to follow your interests in specialist legal areas such as company or employment law, human rights law, environmental law and family law. You could also explore topics in criminal justice and criminology, such as policing or youth crime.

What students think about School of Law, University of Leeds

    Melisa Martinez Delgado, LLM International Corporate Law

    Testimonial from Melisa Martinez Delgado, LLM International Corporate Law, student at School of Law

    My experience studying at the University of Leeds has exceeded all my expectations. I have really enjoyed the seminars, participating in class with the Professors and working with my fellow international students.

    The best part of the seminars is that they really encourage you to critically analyse the law and its consequences in practice, not only learning about the theory but questioning it. The course also really encourages you to engage in research, something that I am very passionate about and will help me in my future career.

    Nelly Tutu, LLB Law (graduate programme)

    Testimonial from Nelly Tutu, LLB Law (graduate programme), student at School of Law

    I chose Leeds because of its excellent academic reputation and its vibrant student culture. The university is very welcoming and supportive towards students, so I was excited to come here.

    I like that what I am studying is thought-provoking and challenging - this will allow me to grow, not only on an academic level, but on a personal level too.

    Being a part of the Law Society has been really fun! They put on awesome events where people from the faculty can get to know each other while doing something fun, such as the annual Law Ball. I remember being really anxious during the first week of term and the Equality and Diversity Secretary put on a great ice-breaker event where I got to meet other students who I am still friends with today!

    Ghanashyam Khadka, LLM International and European Human Rights Law

    Testimonial from Ghanashyam Khadka, LLM International and European Human Rights Law, student at School of Law

    Its worldwide reputation on the study of law was the obvious reason that led me to choose the University of Leeds. Every seminar is exciting and the lectures have inspired me throughout the course, and using research based methodology has also been a new experience for me. Being in classes full of international course mates has been truly enthralling too. The positive aura of the school has never let me feel that I was on the other side of the globe away from home.
