commentaries, case summaries and statutes, in order to prepare for seminars and to help with written assessments. At Leeds, you are expected to read around the topics discussed in lectures and reading time can range between 4-10 hours. In the Brotherton Library the main floor is regularly filled with law students in my year with piles of books next to their laptops and a dazed look, with hint of despair on their faces, as the monumental task of preparing for weekly seminars dawns upon them. Exam period is a whole different story. Law students make complete use of 24 hour access to the Edward Boyle Library as the task of remembering the names and principles set out in cases is immense. It is no exaggeration that some students literally spend 12 hours daily revising for end of year assessments.

The School of Law at Leeds is heralded as one of the leading schools in the UK and for the past two years I have been immersed in an environment where I am required to push myself in order to succeed. Leeds Law school has opened the door to many opportunities that I feel I may not have been aware of had I elected to attend another University.

Leeds University Law School is internationally recognised for its research quality and with an academic staff of around fifty, there is always someone who

is able to offer some form of assistance. The Law School often features in the top twenty Schools in various league tables and the high level of student satisfaction is clearly evident. For the past year, I have attended talks and meetings about what I can do with my Law degree once I graduate, and after not having a clear idea in my first year about what I wanted to do once I graduated I am slowly but surely grasping an idea about where my working life is heading. The law school often organise seminars held by outside speakers from local solicitors’ firms and the

support given by the staff when applying for Legal Vacation Work Placement Schemes is nothing short of exceptional.

Law is a very fulfilling degree. It is stimulating and the fact that law is always changing gives me the chance to analyse the socio-legal aspects of laws that are passed, as it remains a very topical degree.

But don’t be fooled. Studying Law is very hard work. I have spent countless days in the library trolling through textbooks, legal

It’s not all bad though, I do have a somewhat vibrant social life. If you manage your time well, there is still more than enough time to take advantage of the clubs and societies that Leeds University Union has to offer, and to engross yourself in the bustling backdrop that is Leeds City Centre. I am currently the captain of the Spanish Society Football team and I also was a member of the Leeds University Street Dance Society in my second year. I also have enough time to go out to nightclubs with my housemates on a weekly basis, so although life as a law student can be quite stressful, there is ample opportunity to relax and blow off some steam. Leeds boasts over 30 fully licensed nightclubs in the city centre and with venues catering for any style of music from rock and indie in

the Cockpit to deep house and 2-step at Vox Warehouse, there is literally something for everyone. The Leeds University Law Society (LawSoc) also works hard to make sure that law students aren’t studying all the time, and their social events usually include a mammoth bar crawl. The year is rounded off by a finely organised Law Ball where students and lecturers are encouraged to dress in an alluring manner; a definite showcase for Leeds University Law School.

As I enter my third and final year I am excited yet anxious. With my dissertation looming and my final exams at the end of the year, I know there is little room for complacency. However I do know that although I need to continue working hard I will be able to relax on occasions, and hopefully by this time next year I will be celebrating achieving a first class degree. I know that I have support from my tutor and lecturers and if you are looking for a law school that is very student-centric, Leeds University Law School should be very high on your list of choices.
