Do you want to develop and apply your critical thinking and analytical skills in a legal context? Are you excited about the impact you could make in a legal profession? Law at Leeds Trinity is a fully qualifying law degree, which means you’ll complete the first stage of training for your career as a barrister or solicitor. You’ll cover the full range of law subjects required for training as a barrister or solicitor, including The English Legal System, Public Law, Contract Law and Criminal Law. You’ll also open doors to a wide range of legal careers, thanks to our focus on giving you an all-round legal education. We keep our class sizes much smaller than other universities, allowing us to give you high levels of personal student support. We’re also one of only a few UK universities to include professional work placements with every undergraduate degree, so you’ll graduate with professional experience without having to take a sandwich year. What’s more, Leeds is a rapidly growing legal centre, making it the perfect place to start your legal career. Placement opportunities During each year of your degree, you'll get exclusive opportunities to work with law and legal service providers. In Year 1, you'll complete a seven-week programme of preparation, training and placement work. You'll complete one six-week placement in your second year, with the option to complete an additional placement between your second and third year. In your final year, you'll have the option to take a Professional Learning Through Work module. This is a year-long project, which gives you the chance to work on a live brief from a legal employer. Graduate opportunities You'll graduate with a fully qualifying law degree, which means you'll have completed the first stage of training for your career as a barrister or a solicitor. You'll also be prepared for a wide range of other legal roles, such as notary, costs lawyer, licensed conveyancer, trade mark attorney and patent attorney. A Law degree develops key transferable skills that would also be useful in other professions such as chartered accountant, immigration adviser, barrister's clerk and the Criminal Justice System. Further study may be required.
