Introduction

Celebrating 50 years

fiftieth anniversary logo

Our first 50 years have been shaped by life-changing experiences, internationally-recognised research discoveries and, at times, riotous challenges. Find out how we’re celebrating our 50th anniversary and how you can join the celebrations.

At our School of Law you will study with leading legal experts alongside students from across the world. We are committed to delivering high-quality teaching which is supported by our research across a huge range of legal fields from public law to human rights and informed by our international outlook.

We offer six undergraduate LLB courses which are all 'qualifying', letting you proceed straight onto the professional stage of training to become a solicitor or barrister. Our wide range of LLM courses include the longest established human rights law course in Europe. We also offer you numerous opportunities to put what you learn straight into action through a range of extra-curricular activities at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
