University of Leeds


University of Leeds is a Russell Group member and ranked 8th in the UK for research according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014).

The University of Leeds is quickly rising in the rankings for the study of law. The University is on one campus and is a quick ten minutes’ walk to the city centre. An industrial city, Leeds is quickly becoming a university city to the core. Leeds has a cosmopolitan campus, consisting of over 5,000 international students from 145 countries and staff of 99 different nationalities.

As of 2015/2016, Leeds will have spent more than £100m on new buildings and refurbishment, with an expected further £200m of expenditure in the pipeline. This investment is reflected in a new gym and pool, and the campus has more fitness facilities than any other UK university.

The School of Law provides a stimulating environment for students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. There are various centres and groups dedicated to legal research: Centre for Business Law and Practice, Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, Centre for Law and Social Justice and Law and Emerging Technologies Research Group. Students are also encouraged to participate in mooting and pro bono activities to complement their legal studies.

Law degrees at the University of Leeds


LLB Law 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.

LLB Law is a 'Qualifying Law Degree'. This status means that graduation from the programme exempts you from the Common Professional Examination: the initial stage of professional qualification as a solicitor or barrister for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council.This shortens your professional training, should you wish to practise in England and Wales, by one year.

The course provides you with a range of skills that will be valuable to you as an educated and reflective citizen, as well as in your professional career regardless of whether you enter the legal profession ornot.


" Not only was my experience in the UK rewarding in the context of academics, I also had the unique opportunity to travel Europe for next to nothing! At the age of 24 years old, I had travelled to Toledo, Madrid, Amsterdam, Venice, Milan, and all over the UK. "
