Law affects almost everything we do, whether buying a bus ticket, downloading something from the internet or talking on our mobile phones. Law is the body of rules and regulations that is used to govern a society and the behaviour of its members. It protects our rights from abuse and punishes those who commit crime. If you are interested in making a contribution to a fair society and defending our rights, then a career in law can be very rewarding
All Discover Law students will get a feel for what studying law at university is really like over two years, as well as an insight into law as a career. Here you will learn about what university is like from our current Law undergraduates.
This pathway is for students who meet specific Academic and Widening Participation (WP) criteria from state schools within South Yorkshire and the surrounding region. See 'How to apply' section below for more information.
Students who successfully complete the pathway will be eligible for a conditional adjusted offer for degrees at the University of Sheffield, with the exception of degrees in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health.

If you have the potential to achieve good grades at A Level or equivalent and would either be in the first generation of your family to go into Higher Education, or you are a Looked after Child, look after someone in your family or have a declared disability, you may qualify to apply for the pathway.
Talk to the head of your sixth form or your course leader to find out. They will tell you if you are eligible based upon the criteria and information we have provided for them.
You and your parents or carers will then need to complete the online application form, via your registered school/college coordinator.
Note: Taking part in Discover Law shows commitment and could enhance your university application. However, it does not guarantee you a place at university. Places are subject to availability and you can only be registered on one sustained Outreach programme at the University of Sheffield at any one time.
