The Legal Cheek View
If you decide to do your GDL at University of Law’s Leeds campus, you’ll have the opportunity to read your statute book on its rooftop terrace, which looks out on a stretch of the city skyline.
There’s a law firm vibe about this campus. It’s a towering, seven-storey glass-fronted building, which “replicates the corporate setting of a professional firm”. The surroundings might make you feel like a lawyer already. Perfect motivation for getting on with those training contract or pupillage applications.
No doubt the ultra-modern building blends in with the law firms in Leeds, of which there are more than 200. Being so close to this major legal hub — which is home to firms such as DLA Piper, Irwin Mitchell and Eversheds Sutherland — is a definite bonus for your career opportunities.
