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.
All of our courses – from our undergraduate law degrees to our market-leading postgraduate courses and professional development programmes – are designed with a unique, varied and innovative learning approach that’s proven to deliver self-reliant lawyers who can compete in the fast-changing world of legal services.
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.
The University of Law is an internationally recognised expert in the field of law. Rather than focusing on academic research, our aim is to be thought leaders in the issues that matter to the legal profession and the next generation of practising lawyers.
All of our tutors are qualified solicitors, barristers or judges, and all have extensive practical experience which they are able to pass onto our students.
We focus exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to our market-leading law careers service and legal vacancy database as soon as they accept a place with us. This combination means our graduates are in a unique position when it comes to finding employment. In 2016, 96% of our full-time LPC students who passed the course in the summer were employed within nine months.
We take our responsibility to widen access to the legal profession seriously, and offer a wide range of scholarships to help talented University of Law students fund their legal training and achieve their career ambitions.
