Law School

At UEA Law School, we do more than just teach the law. We inspire you to master it and use it to make a real difference.

You can help the community access free legal advice through our award winning Law Clinic. You can work with the Justice Project to investigate new lines of enquiry into cases where prisoners protest their innocence. You can also get involved in many other law-related volunteering opportunities.

Our vibrant community is built by approachable staff and dedicated students. We encourage our students to think critically and imaginatively, and the strong offering of optional modules will enable you to explore different subjects and aspects of law.

You will be taught by renowned international experts on issues such as policing and public protest, medical negligence, and how the law can control powerful companies like Google and Facebook.
