Changes to legal education and training
Legal education and training is currently under detailed review by professional regulators in the legal sector. The review is examining the education and training routes into the legal profession and the qualifications and assessments to be undertaken and passed in order to become a solicitor or barrister. The outcome of the review includes proposals to remove existing routes and establish new ones. 

The review outcomes are still being finalised. In the meantime, the LLB programmes and the GDL offered by Leeds Law School continue to comply with the regulatory requirements currently in force for the academic stage of legal training for qualification as a barrister or a solicitor.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the Bar Standards Board (BSB) have issued a common protocol for guidance. This can be found by visiting the SRA website.  

Our Law in Practice guest lecture series provides opportunities for you to network and hear from high-profile speakers from a range of backgrounds and contexts. Past speakers have included politician and human rights activist Baroness Chakrabarti.

Leeds Law School’s Law Clinic provides a confidential environment for clients to seek free legal advice. If you choose to get involved, you could develop key transferable skills, such as The Law Clinic brings local law firms even closer to the university’s student community and will provide you with invaluable first-hand experience of legal practice, enhancing your employability prospects.

You will have the opportunity to study abroad or to complete a work placement to strengthen your CV and build your graduate prospects.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total.

Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.
