    How can we help you?

    The University is dedicated to supporting and helping school and college students to make their future decisions. We’re on hand to attend fairs and parents evenings, we run workshops or deliver talks to demystify careers in and the study of law. Find out what’s on offer for your students in our Events section.

    • Our Schools and Colleges Officers are your first point of contact when it comes to arranging any events, talks or workshops with The University of Law (ULaw). Both officers are very happy for you to get in touch to discuss your students’ needs and what we can do for them. Please make sure you get in touch with the correct officer for your region – Gina is based in the south and Jodie covers the midlands and the north.

      Gina Blaxill

      Gina covers school and college liaison in the south of the country. Prior to starting at ULaw she worked in education liaison/student recruitment at Middlesex University for four and a half years where she ran outreach and schools events for Years 6-13 and supported students across schools in London with their UCAS applications. She has also had experience working in an FE college and a variety of non-education based roles within the financial and conservation sector.

      The team
      In addition to our Officers, we have an enthusiastic team on hand to assist in our schools work including past and current students and our tutors. All know law inside out so are well placed to share their insight with your students.

  • I chose The University of Law because it's so focused. It's almost vocational. You're learning to think like a lawyer rather than learning the law.
