Information

About The University of Law

The University of Law, formerly the College of Law, is a private teaching university in England which specialises in providing legal education. The Open University is affiliated with the institution, meaning that the University runs a number of distance learning programmes, including the Open University's LLB degree programme. However, given the nature of the subject, students require significant amounts of teaching and need to be enrolled at one of the 8 centres, in seven different locations, across the UK.
  

Background and History

The University of Law is the UK's oldest specialist provider of legal education and training. Formally established as The College of Law by the Law Society in the 1960s, the University's roots in the profession stretch back over 100 years.The institution has remained at the heart of legal education ever since, developing a national presence as the acknowledged leader in innovative, professional legal education for prospective lawyers and professional development training for those already qualified. Over the years, the college worked with virtually every UK law firm to help meet their training and development needs, thus developing strong links with the industry. In 2006, the college became the first independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers, leading to the development of professionally-focused Bachelor and Master of Laws degree programmes. Then, in 2012, the institution was granted the full university title and changed its name from The College of Law to The University of Law.

Facilities at The University of Law

Academic Facilities

All of the university's centres have modern, well-equipped facilities designed to provide a comfortable and stimulating learning environment. Due to the specialist nature of the centres, each campus benefits from its own library, fully stocked with textbooks, journals, encyclopaedias, law reports and statute books.  

Other on-site Amenities

In addition, the centres offer state-of-the-art IT suites, with high ratios of networked PCs to students and widely available Wi-Fi internet access. Furthermore, all of the centres are located in cities where nearby food and drink vendors are always close by.  

Social and Medical Care

As well as all the social activities, clubs and societies going on at the University centres, students will also hold free associate membership of your centre's local university students' union. This means that students have access to all the facilities, clubs, societies, events and employability programmes that your local students union offers, as well as providing the opportunity to meet other students studying at universities across the city. The centres also provide support and guidance if help is needed while you are studying. Each centre has a confidential counselling service and learning support team, and students have the opportunity to register with a local GP during the first term. Each centre's Student Services team is also on hand to give advice on a wide range of issues.

What's on in the Area

Wherever you're studying, the cities of Birmingham, Bristol, Chester, Guildford, London Bloomsbury, Manchester and York have lots to offer to keep you entertained, from cinemas, galleries and theatres, to live music, shopping and restaurants.
