ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY OF LAW
The University of Law is one of the UK's longest-established specialist providers of legal education. We can trace our origins to 1876 with the formation of leading tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon.
With a rich heritage and a reputation for innovation and contemporary teaching practices, we continuously focus on developing the best legal minds.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
What really sets us apart from other universities is the guiding principle that the current and future lawyers we teach should only ever learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context with plenty of practical, interactive engagement. That's why we keep our contact hours high and our teaching groups small.
Our track record of excellence in learning and development has helped us establish worldwide connections within the legal services market. This is why many leading global law firms work exclusively with us 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 us.
FOCUSED ON EMPLOYABILITY
We focus exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to our expert law careers service and legal vacancy database as soon as they accept a place with us. Students also benefit from our pioneering and award-winning pro bono programmes, which allow them to gain valuable work experience by helping real clients from the local community.
