Bartolomé House, the home of the University of Sheffield School of Law, is a beautiful Victorian building opposite Weston Park. It is embedded in the unversity campus, close to the technologically advanced, 24/7 Information Commons, the award winning Students' Union and to the Supertram stop.
Having our own building gives us a strong sense of community, belonging and identity as many events and activities are based here at Bartolomé. As well as a café, places to relax and socialise, and plenty of workspace with wireless internet, students also have access to a moot court room and to supportive, understanding staff.
The School is a community of students and staff that thrives on mutual respect, encouragement and commitment to excellence in research, teaching and student welfare.
As a member of the School of Law you will be very much part of two further communities; the University - with its societies, union, sports and shops, as well as the City of Sheffield. Sheffield is the greenest city in Europe nestling on the edge of the Peak District, with a lively cultural industries quarter, diverse music and club scene and a justified reputation for safe, affordable living. Sheffield students are the most likely in the country to find work, and forge a life, in the city where they studied.
School of Law students get involved.
Many volunteer in the city and the Lodge at the gates to Bartolomé is the base for our student run FreeLaw centre which offers a drop-in service providing advice to local people. Students looking to bolster their academic experience with lively cultural and voluntary activities can help reach out to schools and get involved in mooting events and mock trials, social events and the Edward Bramley student law society.
