The University of Law - eight centres, seven cities, all offering the same high standards. Our facilities are second to none. They provide a first-class, professional learning environment.
Some of The University of Law centres are in the middle of large cities, while others are in campus locations. But all are in thriving commercial areas and offer the same fully-resourced facilities, including well equipped IT suites with PCs for DVD and i-Tutorials, comprehensive law libraries with all the latest legal texts, quiet study areas and places to relax. In fact, our libraries have recently won the LexisLibrary Award for ‘Best Legal Information Service (Commercial Sector)’ 2013, which recognises the excellence of our Library Information Officers across our eight centres in supporting students with their legal research. In addition, you will have access to our online learning resource ELITE. Wireless internet connection is free.
Our centres aim to recreate the professional, modern environments of top law firms and our mock courtrooms provide that extra touch of realism for future barristers. They all benefit from great transport links, making them ideal for full-time, part-time or occasional attendance. They are ideal for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as for qualified lawyers attending professional development training courses.

provide into the daily working of the legal system is invaluable and grounded
