Program description


The University of Bristol Law School is a centre for intellectually demanding, research-informed legal education. We aim to produce accomplished, well-rounded and enquiring graduates with a rich, ethically grounded appreciation of law in business and society.

In the final year all students produce an extended research project on a topic of their choice. The core and optional units reflect the wide variety of approaches to legal research adopted by the scholars in the Law School.

We are committed to the personal and professional development of our students, with small-group teaching throughout. There is also an embedded law clinic programme that enables students to work on real-life cases with professional guidance and support.

All applicants must sit the National Admissions Test for Law (LNAT) before the relevant deadline. Details are available on theLNAT Website. Please refer to the Admissions Statement below for further information about LNAT.
