Explore legal excellence

Designed to challenge and inspire, our exciting programmes will prepare you for a career in the legal profession and beyond. Our courses are academically rigorous, informed by the latest research and taught with enthusiasm by leading academics. The curriculum has been designed to provide you with a strong foundation in the core subjects coupled with opportunities to pursue optional modules in areas of your choosing.

You will be part of a close-knit, friendly, academic community. As a relatively small law school, we offer a high level of support to ensure you achieve your personal and academic ambitions. A team-building induction, guidance from student mentors, small-group learning opportunities and academic support from your personal tutor will ensure you make the most of your time with us. Whatever your career aspirations, we will help you to achieve your goals through our dedicated employability skills programme, careers fairs, pro bono opportunities, and prestigious marshalling schemes and prizes.

You will graduate from a highly-regarded school with an in-depth knowledge of the law and the ability to think independently and communicate effectively – a firm foundation for a career in law as a solicitor or barrister. You will also be well placed for success in the world of industry, banking, government, the media or politics. 86% of our graduates are in professional employment or further study within 6 months of graduation (2016/2017 DHLE).
