Highlights about the institution:
The University of Law is the UK’s longest-established specialist provider of legal education. They have developed a refined syllabus of courses to complement the legal education career needs. From the undergraduate LLB all the way through to the barrister-level BPTC, their courses are specifically designed by some of the country’s top law academics – the majority of whom have previously practiced law – so as to be confident in the knowledge of learning real-world legal skills from real lawyers. What really sets them apart from other universities is the guiding principle that the current and future lawyers learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context.
All of their tutors are qualified solicitors, barristers or judges, and all have extensive practical experience which they are able to pass onto the students. They facilitate 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.
They focus exclusively on practice-based training and give students access to the market-leading law careers service and legal vacancy database. Students also benefit from their pioneering and award-winning pro bono programmes, which allow them to gain valuable work experience by helping real clients from the local community. This combination means their graduates are in a unique position when it comes to finding employment.
