The University of Law’s world-class academic staff

We are the UK’s longest-established law school with more than 100 years of experience. We teach real-world business skills too.

We are pioneers of professionally-focused law degrees designed to teach you to think and act like a lawyer. Our business degrees prepare you for key leadership roles, whether you want to start your own firm or work for a major multinational company.

More than 90 per cent of our excellent tutors are qualified lawyers with real life experience in practice. Our business tutors have all been business leaders. We are proud to have been voted in the top 10 for overall student satisfaction in the 2018 National Student Survey.

In 2017 The University of Law was awarded a gold ranking in the UK Government-led Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The panel judged that ULaw delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students, and it was assessed to be of the highest quality found in the UK.

With a team of more than 250 professionally-qualified tutors, visiting professors and lecturers leading classes across 11 campuses, ULaw offers an established teaching methodology that focuses on the knowledge and practical skills proven to develop a successful career.

All our students are assigned a personal tutor and have regular one-to-one meetings where they can get advice on the course and career aspirations. As regular tutors are based in our campuses they operate an ‘open door’ policy so students can talk to them whenever they need to.
