    Course Summary

    In addition to theoretical knowledge, you’ll gain vital clinical experience with a very diverse group of patients, both in several Leeds hospitals as well as general practices throughout the region. This will help you when it comes to competing for the most sought-after postings.

    The University of Leeds benefits from a thriving Patient Carer Community, which gives their students greater insight into the experience of the people they’ll be helping. UL is also a recognised leader in mobile learning, and this will factor heavily in your education there.

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.
