Law has been studied and taught at Queens since 1845. The years since have seen many changes and challenges for the legal profession in Belfast. Legal and political developments have drawn a great deal of interest to law throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as to the distinctive aspects of the Northern Irish legal system. In more recent years the School has had an increased focus on European, international and comparative law.
Today, there are over 800 undergraduate students enrolled in the School, 250 postgraduates, 80+ PhD students and over 50 members of academic staff.
