Pathways to Law

What is Pathways to Law?

Pathways to Law is a widening participation scheme for students from under-represented backgrounds, who are interested in a career in law. This two year programme aims to raise aspirations of young people, increase social mobility and help more young people progress into the legal sector.

In 2019/20, just under 60% of students who completed the Pathways to Law programme at the University of Leeds, were offered a place to study Law at the University.

Students who complete the Pathways to Law programme at any University who run the Pathways to Law programme, may be eligible for a contextual offer to study in the School of Law at Leeds. This is in line with the Access to Leeds criteria.

The Pathways to Law programme offers a unique opportunity for students in Year 12 and 13 to experience what it would be like to study Law at University as well as work in the legal sector.
