The University of Sheffield
School of Law

History

Portrait of Edward BramleyIn 1899 a solicitor called Edward Bramley gave the first of a series of law lectures in what was to become the University of Sheffield's School of Law. Building upon past successes year after year, we have developed into a large law school with an international reputation for excellence in research, for the expertise of its staff and the achievements of its graduates. With excellent ratings for research and teaching you can be sure you'll be joining one of the UK's top law schools.

Location

Picture of GargoyleJust a couple of minutes' walk away from Western Bank, the University of Sheffield's main campus, is Bartolomé House on Winter Street. Built at the beginning of the 1900s, Bartolome House is an impressive red-brick building forming three sides of a square, with graceful arches, gargoyles and decorative wrought-ironwork. It's a distinctive building with real character.

Facilities

From the old exterior, to the modern interior - we have excellent IT facilities, seminar rooms, student common rooms and our own Moot Court so students can practise their advocacy skills in a realistic setting. There is also wireless internet access throughout the building.

In addition to the facilities in Bartolome House, students have access to all the resources and services provided by the University Library. Access to online legal research resources is available at any time from any internet connection via the University Internet portal.
