The University of Law
London, EC1N 2HS
We are one of the UK's longest-established specialist providers of legal education. We can trace our origins to 1876 with the formation of leading tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon, and in 2016, we opened our leading Business School.
What really sets us apart from other universities is the guiding principle that future lawyers and business leaders should only ever learn in a realistic, professional and contemporary context with plenty of practical, interactive engagement. That's why we keep our contact hours high and our teaching groups small.
All of our courses – from our undergraduate law degrees to our diverse range of business courses and postgraduate programmes – are designed with a unique, varied and innovative learning approach that’s proven to deliver self-reliant professionals who can compete in the fast-changing professional world. With a focus on developing skills in problem-solving, weighing up arguments, critical thinking, and commercial awareness, our courses are designed to prepare you for the real-life challenges of the working world.
Our track record of excellence in learning and development has helped us establish worldwide connections within the legal and business industries. This is why many leading global law firms and businesses work exclusively with us to develop their people, and why employers of all types want to meet our students. It’s why law schools and professional bodies around the world choose to enter into strategic alliances with us.
We also have many international partnerships that allow us to provide a rounded, global outlook to business and law.
