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 or not.
