School of Law, University of Leeds Student Reviews

  • Melisa Martinez Delgado

    LLM International Corporate Law

    My experience studying at the University of Leeds has exceeded all my expectations. I have really enjoyed the seminars, participating in class with the Professors and working with my fellow international students.

    The best part of the seminars is that they really encourage you to critically analyse the law and its consequences in practice, not only learning about the theory but questioning it. The course also really encourages you to engage in research, something that I am very passionate about and will help me in my future career.

  • Nelly Tutu

    LLB Law (graduate programme)

    I chose Leeds because of its excellent academic reputation and its vibrant student culture. The university is very welcoming and supportive towards students, so I was excited to come here.

    I like that what I am studying is thought-provoking and challenging – this will allow me to grow, not only on an academic level, but on a personal level too.

    Being a part of the Law Society has been really fun! They put on awesome events where people from the faculty can get to know each other while doing something fun, such as the annual Law Ball. I remember being really anxious during the first week of term and the Equality and Diversity Secretary put on a great ice-breaker event where I got to meet other students who I am still friends with today!
