EU Law Summer School
A brand new summer course designed to introduce (prospective) postgraduate students to EU law provides you with an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the European Union and the diverse elements of EU Law.
The course will run from 9 June 2014 to 11 September 2014, and will be taught through a mixture of online tuition and on-site study in Leeds.
What our students say
"The BA Criminal Justice and Criminology at Leeds is intimate and based within the School of Law. This means that you get to know the vast majority of people in your year and can develop personal relationships with the lecturers and other teaching staff.
It also means that you can take your degree in a direction which interests you most, be it legal or sociological."
