We look after you

Our peer mentors are a group of current students from the School who provide support and guidance to our new students.

Throughout the year the mentors organise a number of events for new students, from coffee mornings, through academic support (in a very general peer-to-peer manner), to social events such as games nights.


We'll help you get a job

We provide lots of opportunities for you to engage with employers and develop your skills.

Employer engagement is a key strength of our courses, whether it be through placement opportunities, or through employer workshops on campus. We support a range of activities that give students the opportunity to expand their skill set from Mooting and Streetlaw to Podcasting and The Global Skills Project.


We are diverse

We have a School international champion, Prof Gordon Anthony

We are extremely proud of our international connections and have staff and students from over 70 countries. Our academics have research links across the world. Study abroad opportunities are available for students on all our programmes.


We create impact!

Because we're so research-intensive, our courses are always informed by the latest developments.

The School was ranked joint 4th in the UK out of 67 Law Schools for the impact of its research.

We're constantly investing in our facilities

The high-spec recording studio gives students the facility to record, review, edit and critically analyse their own presence on camera while giving presentations as well as have a video they can use to receive feedback from peers and lecturers.


The social life

On top of the usual student activities, our Law Society wants to make you feel welcome.

The social calendar includes nights out, a magical mystery tour and a formal dance, giving you the opportunity to meet your classmates and lecturers in a more relaxed environment.
