Course summary

This law degree allows you to learn about the types of law, in the sense of ‘thinking like a lawyer’ and studying law as a social institution within two legal systems, both at the University of Leeds and at a partner university in France.

As a law student you’ll study key topics within the legal sector, such as contract law, criminal law and international law, as well as the broader context of the law and its relationship with society. At the same time, you’ll be introduced to the French legal system and develop your language skills in preparation for your third year studying law in a French university.

A wide range of optional modules will allow you to pursue your interests in specialist legal areas such as company law, human rights law, environmental law and family law. You could also explore topics in criminal justice and criminology, such as policing or youth crime.

Throughout the course, you’ll gain diverse skills that will be valuable to you as a citizen, as well as in your professional career – whether you choose to enter the legal profession or not.

Accreditation

All our LLB courses are currently accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Council.

Exemptions

This programme is a Qualifying Law Degree. This status means that graduation from the programme exempts you from the Common Professional Examination: the initial stage of professional qualification as a solicitor or barrister for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This shortens your professional training by one year, should you wish to practise in England and Wales.

Assessment
