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, covering subjects including the English Legal System, Public Law, Contract Law and Criminal Law. The LLB (Bachelor of Laws) degree is an internationally recognised and valued qualification which prepares graduates for professional courses that lead to qualification as either a barrister or solicitor. Our Law degree will 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. In your final year you can study a selection of non-law option subjects offering the opportunity for you to expand your law study into areas such as Business; Journalism; Children, Young People and Families; Criminology and Sociology; and Politics. What’s more, Leeds is a rapidly growing legal centre, making it the perfect place to start your legal career. Professional placements You’ll get exclusive opportunities to work with law and legal service providers through an integrated programme of preparation, training and placements throughout your degree. In your final year an optional Professional Learning through Work module gives you the chance to work on a live brief from a legal employer.  Career opportunities Graduating with a fully qualifying law degree means you’ll have completed the first stage of training for your career as a barrister or solicitor. You will develop key transferable skills that will also be useful in other professions such as chartered accountant, immigration adviser, barrister’s clerk and working within the Criminal Justice System. Further study may be required.
