Our Law School is among the top law schools in the United Kingdom. Our excellence in teaching standards is allied with a strong commitment to the pastoral care of our students through our advisee system.

We have a reputation for world-class research and excellence in teaching standards. This is allied with a strong commitment to providing you with intellectually diverse and stimulating courses, as well as career and employment development. We offer a range of specialist Taught Masters degrees, supported by a diverse range of over 20 subjects or 'modules'. We are committed to providing a supportive and exciting learning environment and believe small group teaching is important, so we aim to keep numbers low, offering students an unparalleled personal teaching environment with access to our team of international specialists drawn from academia and practice.

Our postgraduate students come from a wide variety of geographical and personal backgrounds, and it is the vibrant and dynamic community which they create that completes the student experience. Our law graduates are highly regarded by employers both in and outside the legal profession and we have well-established and excellent relationships with many local, regional, national and international law firms. Students from the Law School have progressed to a wide variety of successful careers, from private practice in local and international law firms to government legal departments and international organisations, from universities to industry and commerce.

Student welfare is of enormous importance to the Law School, with academic and pastoral support provided to all students. All students have their own Academic Adviser, and our Induction Programme (including a module in Postgraduate Legal Skills and Research) is aimed at assisting students in developing a number of core legal study skills needed during the course and beyond. We also provide a specialist Integrated Law Language Programme in the first semester, to help those students' whose first language is not English.
