If you are planning to become a lawyer, consider attending the University of Leicester Law School. You’ll be joining over 300 Canadian students already enrolled in the law program. Even better, there are a number of scholarships which are specifically designed for Canadian applicants. One major benefit is the LLB Graduate Entry degree which is an established fast-track course. The program condenses the full qualifying degree into 2 years saving you both time and money. The 3 year LLB meanwhile, gives students a solid foundation in law across a variety of topics and is ideal for students who have just finished high school. The University of Leicester Law school also offers Canadian courses now, ‘Foundations of Canadian law’ and ‘Canadian Constitutional Law’. The two year degree which includes Canadian content is the JD Pathway law degree, which is definitely worth exploring if you are applying from here at home.
In addition, you can be part of the student-led Canadian Law society, to enhance your school experience. There is also support to help you kick-start your career upon your return to Canada.
