The University of Law is one of the UK's
longest-established specialist providers of legal education. Its origins can be
traced back to 1876 with the formation of the leading tutorial firm Gibson
& Weldon, and later on, with the establishment of The Law Society School of
Law. In 1962 the two were amalgamated to establish The College of Law. UoL was
the first-ever independent institution to be granted degree awarding powers and
not long after, in 2012 they gained university title.
The University is at the heart of legal
education as the acknowledged leader in innovative, professional legal
education for prospective lawyers and professional development training for
those already qualified. Over the years, we have worked with virtually every UK
law firm to help meet their training and development needs, with many firms
sending their trainees exclusively to us.
The University of Law has students from
over 120 different nationalities who contribute to a thriving international
community throughout our campuses.
We understand that moving to a new country to study is a big and exciting decision and we want to support you each step of
