As an undergraduate student at Leeds Law School – you will have the opportunity to study abroad for a year. We work with universities around the world whose staff will continue to nurture and support you as you embark on a sandwich year.
Studying abroad provides an exciting opportunity for you to not only learn about different legal systems and practises - but to immerse yourself in another culture and enrich your travelling experiences, all the while contributing to your academic and personal development.
There are also a number of funding options which you may be entitled to - from maintenance loans to potential travel grants. Find out more.
You can also learn more about studying abroad and the experiences are students have had here.
Developing research skills is fundamental to every level of study here at Leeds Law School. We offer a vast selection of resources and academic databases, all dedicated to supporting students when it comes to producing stand out research and advancing their independent learning skills.
From learning how to properly analyse and reference sources, to gaining access to important academic journal articles - our students are taught to conduct high quality and ground breaking research from day one.
Mooting is an important part of advancing your advocacy and debating skills. Our mooting competitions are set up to simulate real court hearings (usually an appeal against a final decision) and all held in our Courtroom.
During these sessions, students are asked to analyse a problem, researching the corresponding law, prepare written submissions and finally publicly present their argument and findings. This is a fantastic way of honing deliberation and public speaking skills, as well as providing an opportunity to compete against peers whilst being judged by your mentors.
