The University of Leicester Law School is one of the most popular destinations for Canadian students wishing to study for a Law Degree. Leicester has been recruiting in Canada for more than a decade and has an established history of teaching law and facilitating the law careers of Canadian students. In fact, more than a third of their student body in the Law Program is from Canada. So why should you choose Leicester Law?
One of the big advantages is the Canadian Law Society at Leicester. This organization helps support students from the time they are in class, through to their return back home to begin their careers. Law Society members hold many alumni events in cities such as Toronto, where students can do some networking while having fun with fellow graduates at the same time.
For students who do not have an undergraduate degree, it is possible to enter the 3 year LLB program directly from high school. For those who already have a B.A. (Hons), it is possible to enter postgraduate law studeies via the 2 year Accelerated Law Program (JD Pathway.)
Entry to these programs requires a G.P.A. of approximately 75-80 percent. Upon returning home, students will be required to write 5-7 exams, (depending upon their program choices.) However, they are able to work at a law firm in Canada during this time. Watch the video below to see two Leicester Law grads who now have their own law firm back in Canada.
The University of Leicester guarantees university accommodation to all first year students from Canada. So students are assured of safe, convenient housing as they embark on their studies. The City of Leicester is also very close to the University and offers a wide array of activities from restaurants and pubs to shopping.
