Innovation and contemporary teaching practices

Powerful connections

This is why many leading global law firms work exclusively with the school to develop their people, and why legal employers of all types want to meet the University of Law's students. It’s also why law schools and professional bodies around the world choose to enter into strategic alliances together.

Understanding of the law

The University of Law is an internationally recognized expert in the field of law. Rather than focusing on academic research, the aim is to be leaders in the legal field, and to produce the next generation of practicing lawyers.

Experienced lecturers 

All lecturers are qualified solicitors, barristers or judges, and all have extensive practical experience which they are able to pass onto students. The University of Law facilitate this process with high levels of student-to-tutor contact time and small class sizes.

Expand your career horizons

The focus is placed exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to market-leading law careers service and legal vacancy database as soon as they accept a place at the school. Students also benefit from the pioneering and award-winning pro bono programs, which allow law students to gain valuable work experience by helping real clients from the local community.

This combination means graduates are in a unique position when it comes to finding employment. 97% of full-time 2014 LPC students had secured employment within nine months of graduation (based on known destinations).
