Borthwick-Jackson made his Manchester United debut against West Bromwich Albion in November 2015 and has played 14 games for the club.
He has also represented England at various youth levels, winning caps for the U-17s, U19s and Under 20s.
It is Leeds United's 11th signing in the summer transfer window with Borthwick-Jackson handed the No 3 shirt.
Jose Mourinho did not involve Borthwick-Jackson in his pre-season plans at United, and the youngster will now set to take another attempt at the Championship playing under new manager Thomas Christiansen.
"Leeds United are delighted to announce the signing of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson from Manchester United," Leeds announced on their website.
"The highly-rated, left-footed defender joins the Whites on a season-long loan from the Premier League outfit."
Christiansen has been searching for a replacement for Charlie Taylor, who joined Burnley for an undisclosed compensation fee last month.
Gaetano Berardi started at left-back in Leeds' 3-2 win at Bolton on Sunday, but was forced off at the Macron Stadium after dislocating his shoulder and is waiting to learn the full extent of the injury.
