What makes the University of Law different
What really sets the University of Law apart from other universities is the guiding principle that the current and future lawyers it teaches should only ever learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context with plenty of practical, interactive engagement. That’s why it keeps its contact hours high and its teaching groups small.
Innovation and contemporary teaching practices
All of its courses – from its undergraduate law degrees to its diverse range of 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. With a focus on developing skills in problem-solving, weighing up arguments, critical thinking, and commercial awareness, its courses are designed to prepare you for the real-life challenges of the working world.
Our track record of excellence in learning and development has helped the University of Law establish worldwide connections within the legal services market. This is why many leading global law firms work exclusively with the University of Law to develop their people, and why legal employers of all types want to meet its students. It’s also why law schools and professional bodies around the world choose to enter into strategic alliances with the University of Law.
Understanding of the Law
The University of Law is an internationally recognised expert in the field of law. Rather than focusing on academic research, its aim is to be thought leaders in the issues that matter to the legal profession and the next generation of practising lawyers. Its courses take an in-depth look into key areas of the law and provide a broader overview of the legal system to better contextualise what’s being learned.
The most experienced tutors
Over 250 of its tutors are qualified lawyers, many still in practice, and all have extensive practical experience which they are able to pass on to the students. The University of Law facilitates this process with high levels of student-to-tutor contact time and small class sizes – one of the reasons that many law firms insist their trainees study at the University of Law.
Focused on employability
The University of Law focuses exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to its expert law careers service and legal vacancy database as soon as they accept a place with the university. Students also benefit from the University of Law’s pioneering and award-winning pro bono programmes, which allow them to gain valuable work experience by helping real clients from the local community.
The University of Law takes its responsibility to widen access to the legal profession seriously, and offer a wide range of scholarships to help talented students in the university fund their legal training and achieve their career ambitions.
