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.
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.
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.
