Studying at our Chester campus provides you with the perfect combination of a historic city with modern amenities, and the campus is just 10 minutes from Chester’s city centre. The cobble stone streets of this Roman-walled city are home to a range of great restaurants, bars and pubs to keep you entertained day or night. The campus will remain on its current site in Christleton until the summer of 2021.
Our library at Chester gives you access to software that makes it easier for you to find the legal journals, cases and articles you’ll need during your studies. All workshop rooms are designed to encourage classroom discussions and debates, using technology to allow interactive, engaging sessions to be delivered across all our courses.
