Abstract: For each fixed prime $ p \ne 5$, we prove Leopoldt's conjecture in two infinite families of fields of degree five whose normal closure has Galois group over the rationals isomorphic to $ {S_5}$. The units of these fields were determined by Maus [4]; we develop and apply a simple reformulation of Leopoldt's conjecture to obtain the result. We also observe that Leopoldt's conjecture in one field can imply the same in a second field related by congruence conditions.
