Our tutors have unrivalled experience of training students for legal careers. We employ a team of over 250 tutors, professors and visiting lecturers across our ten campuses to deliver our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional development training. They are qualified solicitors, barrister or judges, with extensive practical experience and share a passion for law and teaching. Many still practise, which means you’ll learn from their insight into today’s legal world.

Each student has a personal tutor providing one-to-one ongoing support, as well as advice on starting working life, whether in law or another discipline. Resident tutors based in our centres operate an open door policy, so you can talk to them whenever you need.

Here is a summary of the experience of some our LLB tutors.
