The UEA Law School prides itself on caring for its students, the quality of its teaching, its internationally excellent research, and its contribution to the wider community.
Indeed, the quality of our teaching has long been recognised as exemplary and in 2015 we received an overall satisfaction score of 98 per cent ranking first for overall satisfaction and second for teaching out of all UK university Law departments. Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses reflect our commitment to help students achieve their full potential in terms of employability whether they pursue a career in the legal profession or in another walk of life. They are supplemented by a mentoring programme, opportunities for internships, and a range of extra-curricular activities to help students develop their confidence and build their CVs. Central to this is the School's pro bono activity, which more than half of our students choose to undertake, and which gives them the opportunity to develop their practical skills while making a significant contribution to the community.
The School is diverse and internationally orientated. Our students come from many countries and we offer three excellent undergraduate courses covering the English, European and US legal systems. Our postgraduate courses, which attract students from around the world, also focus on fields of law that are central to the globalised world of legal practice and business.
We want our School to be inspirational and we are pleased to announce we have returned to its historic ‘home' in Earlham Hall, an ancient building fondly remembered by our alumni and newly refurbished for the Twenty-first Century.
So if you are thinking of studying law at UEA, if you are one of our current students or alumni, or one of our many stakeholder partners – law firms, barristers, businesses and other organisations - we welcome you to the UEA Law School.
