Birmingham is one of Europe’s most vibrant cities; a great place to live and work, it boasts one of the largest concentrations of law firms and lawyers outside of London.
Our Birmingham campus is located in the city’s Jewellery Quarter, just a short walk away from the centre of the city and other universities – making it a great place to study. The campus has a café, allowing you to grab hot and cold food whilst on the go and, with great transport links and the Birmingham Snow Hill Train Station just round the corner, you’re never far from the rest of the UK.
The campus has an extensive law library that has a vocational and practitioner focus, affording the best tailored support for your studies, whatever your course. You can either study in our comfortable, user-friendly space or access books online when studying from home. Our courses feature regular workshops that enable you to interact with your fellow students and tutors, bringing a collaborative approach to learning.
What sets this campus apart is the availability of real law court room furniture, giving you the chance to practise, get hands on experience and feel a part of the law profession before your career has even begun.
The iconic Birmingham Bullring shopping centre hosts all your favourite brands if you’re looking for some retail therapy, and the city itself is packed with bars, restaurants, theatres and sporting facilities for you to socialise in. You will have many opportunities to get involved in a rich sporting and social life at The University of Law Birmingham and have the option to start a society yourself.
Via our dedicated employability team, work experience opportunities are available to every student to help you boost your CV. The campus is close to leading law firms and chambers and we have strong links to both the business and legal community in the city that you can utilise.
We have reserved accommodation for undergraduate students in Birmingham called Canalside, which is positioned in the heart of the historic city, close to a wide variety of shops, students from other universities and a bustling nightlife.
At Birmingham, our tutors and staff pride themselves on delivering the highest quality of legal and business education and are dedicated to helping you achieve your career ambitions. Our tutors are industry professionals that will teach you the practical skills needed to kick start your career.
