The University of Leeds is a Russell Group university and is ranked 7th in the UK for Law according to the Times and The Sunday Times, Good University Guide.

The School of Law hosts a strong community of international students and staff, who bring fresh perspectives to both the lecture theatre and beyond. The School is very active both academically and socially and hosts regular events with guest speakers, careers fairs and even the annual Law’s Got Talent which unites staff and students.

Leeds has one central cosmopolitan campus, consisting of over 6,000 international students from all over the world and is just a ten minute walk from the city centre. The city is home to the fastest growing legal sector in Britain, and is regarded as the second legal capital after London.

The campus has benefited from significant investment in recent years, with £520m being committed to campus development. The School of Law is based in its very own purpose built Liberty Building which was built in 2011 and has various study areas, a Moot Court Room, as well as teaching spaces.

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.


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