Our school

The School of Law is a community of students and staff that thrives on mutual respect, encouragement and commitment to excellence in research, teaching and student welfare.

We provide world class learning and teaching, and carry out research of global relevance. We aim to be recognised for our engagement with society, as one of the top UK Law Schools. We want to make a difference.
