Subject

Law

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 a programme of preparation, training and placement in each of your first two years of study, with the option to complete an additional placement between your second and third year. 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.

Modules

On this course you will study a selection of modules, which may include: The English Legal System; Contract Law; Legal Skills; Human Rights and Social Justice; Criminal Law; Equity and Trusts; Employment Law; Family Law; Law for Journalists; Child and Youth Justice; Intelligence and Security; Prisons and Punishment.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
