The University of Law is a modern professional training school with over 100 years’ experience in law. We have been developing legal minds since 1876 and more than 1,200 students from over 100 countries choose to study with us. With a rich heritage and a reputation for innovation and contemporary teaching practices, the University continuously focuses on developing the best legal minds.
What makes the University of Law different?
Innovation and contemporary teaching practices
All of the courses – from our undergraduate law degrees to our market-leading postgraduate courses and professional development programmes – are designed with a unique, varied and innovative learning approach that’s proven to deliver self-reliant lawyers who can compete in the fast-changing world of legal services.
The Unviersity's track record of excellence in learning and development has helped it establish worldwide connections with the legal services market. This is why many leading global law firms work exclusively with the University of Law to develop their people, and why legal employers of all types want to meet our students. It’s also why law schools and professional bodies around the world choose to enter into strategic alliances with them.
Understanding of the law
The University of Law is an internationally recognised expert in the field of law. Rather than focusing on academic research, our aim is to be thought leaders in the issues that matter to the legal profession and the next generation of practising lawyers.
The most experienced tutors
All of the tutors are qualified solicitors, barristers or judges, and all have extensive practical experience which they are able to pass onto our students. We facilitate this process with high levels of student-to-tutor contact time and small class sizes - one of the reasons that many law firms insist their trainees study with the Unersity of Law.
Focused on employability
The focus is exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to our market-leading law careers service and legal vacancy database. Students also benefit from the pioneering and award-winning pro bono programmes, which allow them to gain valuable work experience by helping real clients from the local community.
This combination means that the graduates are in a unique position when it comes to finding employment. 98% of our full-time LPC students who graduated in summer 2013 had secured employment within nine months of graduation (based on known destinations).
The University takes responsibility to widen access to the legal profession seriously, and offer a wide range of scholarships to help talented University of Law students fund their legal training and achieve their career ambitions.
