    Course Summary

    An LLB in Law with International Legal Studies from the University of Leeds teaches students about the law generally, but also encourages them to examine the law as a social institution. This is achieved from an international as well as a UK-specific point of view, and encourages the student to ‘think like a regulator’ as much as to ‘think like a lawyer’.

    You’ll study not just contract and criminal law, but also legal research, analysis and logical argument skills. You can also choose a specialty, such as cyber-law, environmental law, human rights, criminology, or many others.

    This is a four year curse, but only years one, two and four are delivered at Leeds. Year 3 must be spent abroad, at a partner institution. This will greatly improve your international perspective on the law.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This course is a Qualifying Law Degree, and it includes everything required by the SRA and Bar Council for that qualification at this time. You’ll learn both basic legal skills and the theoretical framework of national and international law. There is a heavy focus on academic rigour, and this program is less practice-focused than many other degrees.

    In your 3 years in Leeds you’ll go beyond this core curriculum, and will be able to choose optional modules that appeal to your particular interests. In your final year most of your modules will be elective, and include options like Evidence, Media Freedom, Intellectual Property Law, Private International Law, and Commercial Law.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Leeds supports a wide range of learning and teaching styles. Over the course of this program you will experience everything from large lecture classes to smaller seminars and group tutorials. You will also be expected to devote quite a lot of time to research and self-directed study.

    Career Possiblities

    Several career paths are open to graduates of the Law with International Legal Studies LLB program. Many go on to practice law of course, but others continue into postgraduate studies or other employment. In particular, your year abroad will make you a very sought-after new hire in a wide range of roles.

    When you do choose a career path, you will have the support of the University of Leeds’ Career Centre. They can provide a great deal of advice and assistance, both in terms of planning your career, and in launching it effectively.
