  • I think the Moorgate campus is brilliant. It is based right in the heart of the city and it is very fascinating to see what goes on inside a magic circle law firm which is directly opposite the campus.

    • There are many extra-curricular activities at The University of Law London Moorgate to help you enhance your commercial awareness and increase your business skills. As well as being interesting and fun, the opportunities provide an invaluable source of information to draw on for interviews and as you further your career.

      The Forum

      The Forum is a combination of two distinct forums at Moorgate, the Law and Justice Forum and the Commercial Awareness Forum (CAF), which have been running successfully for many years at the University.

      Commercial Awareness Forum (CAF)

      CAF exists to increase students’ awareness of business, commerce and finance. It is run by London Moorgate students for the rest of the students, with lecturers acting as facilitators who provide administrative support and guidance on how to invite speakers. CAF invites speakers, not all of whom are lawyers, to speak on topics of general interest. As it is an extracurricular activity, it aims to be fun and to avoid formal 'law lecture' type presentations.

      Recent CAF topics and speakers include:

      • Tim Carter, Legal Counsel at Google UK - life as an in-house lawyer at Google and what the key legal issues are there
      • Dennis Turner, Chief Economist at HSBC - 'How long, how deep?' presentation and discussion about the economic downturn
      • ‘How the City Works’
      • 'The Effect of the Credit Crunch on Litigators’.
      Law & Justice Forum

      The Law & Justice Forum provides an opportunity for students and staff to meet and consider issues of social justice. The Forum complements the specific subjects and areas that students study on both the GDL and LPC. The forum provides an opportunity to consider some of the big issues, many of which are strong motivators for people to become lawyers.

      Here are just some of the topics covered:

      • ‘Gender and the Law’ - Baroness Hale of Richmond - the first and only female Law 'Lord' and HHJ Judge Case, a family law judge and treasurer of the UK Women Judges' Association Discrimination Law Committee
      • ‘Honour Killings’ - Lynne Townley, Senior Policy Advisor to the CPS
      • Cherie Booth - County/Crown Court Recorder, practising QC and as of 2009 Vice-Chair of the International Bar Association's Officers 
            Making a Pitch – Confident, Cool and Legal

            You’re joining a big law firm. A bit daunting – you’ll be talking to senior people in the firm as well as important clients almost from day one. You’ll be representing your firm too. It’s all about confidence – knowing what to say, and when to say it, even when you feel out of your depth.

            Discover the secrets of:

            • Business networking for beginners
            • The elevator pitch
            • Office etiquette
            The Business Game

            How well can you work in a multidisciplinary team? Can you really communicate your ideas?

            The Business Game competition gives you the chance to push your limits. As the Director of a fictional PLC you will have the opportunity to get a feel for the pressures and challenges that Directorship brings. You will need to analyse the market place, prepare a strategy and fight off the competition, while at the same time shaping the culture of your company and communicating your views to your employees.

            Working as part of a team, you will need to establish the strengths and weaknesses of your fellow Directors so work can be allocated efficiently.

          • Careers

            The University of Law London Moorgate provides a first-class careers and employability service that includes a team of legal careers consultants. For detailed information see our Careers and Employability Service.

            Pro bono

            The University of Law has an award winning pro bono service. Students studying at our London centres can access the full range of pro bono opportunities offered across both sites. Below are details of some of the schemes we have run across London Moorgate and London Bloomsbury. There are changes year-to-year, but we will always provide a range of options designed to enhance the employability of our students.

            Intellectual property letter writing clinic

            The University works with Own-it, an organisation supporting start-up businesses in the creative industries.

            You will draft materials for Own-it’s website, this includes letters of advice to individual queries. 

            You will have the chance to use your drafting, analysis and teamwork skills. This is supervised by external solicitors and our own academic staff.


            Streetlaw is public legal education and can cover anything from children’s rights to police powers. 

            At The University of Law London Moorgate we work with local community groups to provide interactive workshops on their chosen legal topic. You will practice teamwork, client care and research and presentation skills.

            The RCJ Personal Support Unit

            University of Law students at the Royal Courts of Justice Personal Support Unit will be trained in a McKenzie friend capacity to assist litigants in person, witnesses’ family members and other members of the public with understanding their court documents, where to go, what fees to pay and accompanying them to court when they need some extra support. Students really enjoy this experience as they are in the heart of the legal system and can see the law in action.

            Legal advice clinic (LAC)

            This is a free legal advice service run by student advisors inside the University for members of the public under the supervision of solicitors experienced in social welfare law. Areas covered include housing, leasehold disputes, employment, family and welfare benefits.

            Working in the legal advice clinic gives students an insight into the workings of a legal practice, a chance to work as a member of the team, and to give much needed help to members of the community.

            University of Law students interview clients in pairs or threes, to obtain details of the case and then work together to produce a letter of advice. Students will gain interviewing, legal research, case analysis, drafting and file management skills through this hands-on experience.

            Our telephone advice for family and employment involves obtaining details from the client before the session for the solicitor who then gives the advice. Following this the student writes an attendance note.

            National Centre for Domestic Violence

            NCDV is a national organisation providing assistance to people suffering domestic violence. NCDV volunteers work in the legal advice clinic to assist victims of domestic violence to obtain emergency injunctions.

            University of Law students gain an understanding of relationship breakdown, domestic abuse, and basic family law. Students interview clients over the phone under difficult circumstances, and gain experience of preparing witness statements and court documents.
