Southampton Law School


At Southampton Law School we are proud of our track record of educating tomorrow’s legal leaders. Many of our talented graduates go on to gain influential positions as judges, politicians and senior practitioners in some of the world’s top law firms.

Our expertise is also making a difference to global legislation through advising and consulting with businesses, governments, international law firms and other global agencies.

Our world-class academics and researchers ensure that our programmes feature the latest legislation and that companies and individuals are kept up-to-date with the current changes in the law.

Here we look at some of the Law School's latest and most significant achievements:

Shaping insurance law

The Law School is a leading centre for research in, and teaching of insurance law worldwide. Informa Senior Research Fellow Johanna Hjalmarsson and Research Fellow Mateusz Bek are working on a major project to advise UK policymakers how to provide insurance cover for people who live in the worst 'at risk' areas.

2014 Research Excellence Framework rankings

Across the board the University of Southampton has maintained its position in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework rankings as one of the UK's top universities.

100 per cent of our research has been rated world leading or internationally excellent for the research environment we provide to staff and students.

Tackling an international debate

Southampton Law students beat off stiff competition from 17 other teams to claim runners-up position in an international mooting competition at the International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot 2011, in Singapore.

They were the only team from a UK university to take part in the competition and team member Kathryn Law won a prize for best speaker.

More recently, Southampton Law School hosted the 14th International Maritime Law Arbitration Moot, with the final taking place at the Supreme Court in London.
