Law is a fascinating subject area. It requires analysis, logical and lateral thought, combined with precision and tenacity. And if you want to become a barrister you’ll need to give a good performance in a court of law.

A career as a solicitor can provide a wealth of opportunity and the diversity of the work is immense. You may be working on commercial contracts for multinational firms, advising celebrities as a media lawyer, be involved in buying and selling property or representing people accused of crimes. Solicitors are increasingly at the centre of both commerce and the community.

You will need to follow a professional route to become a fully qualified solicitor or barrister and our LLB(Hons) and Master of Law and Practice (MLP) courses will put you on the path to a satisfying legal career.

Our innovative Partners in Law scheme links you with ten legal firms, both from the region and nationally with international repute for networking, mentoring and training opportunities.

The University has invested substantially in a unique and innovative student-led Legal Advice Clinic. Located in the town centre, the clinic serves the community of Huddersfield, with our students providing real advice to real people. It’s the first Legal Advice Clinic of its kind in the UK situated permanently off campus and in the community.

The Business School opened in 2010 and provides a modern and professional environment for our students to learn, network and relax. All of our teaching staff have been awarded professional recognition by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
