  • University of Bristol (England) offering qualifying law degrees

    University of Bristol offering qualifying law degrees recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

    The University of Bristol is a university in Bristol, England. It received its Royal Charter in 1909, although its predecessor institution, University College, Bristol, had been in existence since 1876. It is one of the original "red brick" universities. Bristol ranks as one of the top 10 universities in the United Kingdom according to most published league tables and receives more applications per place than any other British University. The University has an annual turnover of £260m and is the largest independent employer in Bristol.

    The University is a member of the Russell Group, European-wide Coimbra Group and the Worldwide Universities Network, of which the University's Vice-Chancellor Prof Eric Thomas is the current Chair. Bristol has around 23,000 students and is one of two universities in Bristol, the other being the more recently established University of the West of England. The University has gained press attention for its high private school intake and the 2003 dispute over its admissions system.

    Bristol awards a range of academic degrees spanning bachelor's and master's degrees as well as junior doctorates and higher doctorates. The postnominals awarded are the degree abbreviations used commonly among British universities. The University is part of the Engineering Doctorate scheme, and awards the Eng. D. in systems engineering, engineering management, aerospace engineering and non-destructive evaluation.

    Bristol notably does not award by title any Bachelor's degrees in music, which is available for study but awarded B.A. (although it does award M.Mus. and D.Mus.), nor any degree in divinity, since divinity is not available for study (students of theology are awarded a B.A.). Similarly, the University does not award B.Litt. (Bachelor of Letters), although it does award both M.Litt. and D.Litt. In regulations, the University does not name M.D. or D.D.S. as higher doctorates, although they are in many universities as these degrees are normally accredited professional doctorates.

    The degrees of D.Litt., D.Sc., D.Eng., LL.D. and D.Mus., whilst having regulations specifying the grounds for award, are most often conferred as honorary degrees (in honoris causa). Those used most commonly are the D.Litt., D.Sc. and LL.D., with the M.A. (and occasionally the M.Litt.) also sometimes conferred honorarily for distinction in the local area or within the University.

    The Bristol University Law School

    Welcome to the School of Law

    We are one of the largest and most successful law schools in the UK, with excellent facilities and an international reputation for our teaching and our research.

    About the School Professor Keith Stanton, Head of School

    "Welcome to the Bristol School of Law's website. We are sure that you will find much to interest you here.

    The Bristol University Law School is one of the largest and most successful in the UK. In the years that I have worked here, it has developed from being a leading UK law school delivering high quality undergraduate teaching into a school with an international reputation for its undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and for the research produced by its staff.

    For those of you who are considering studying with us we offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes which have been designed to develop a student's skills. Our undergraduate and specialist postgraduate programmes enable you to tailor your studies to suit your particular interests. We have well established arrangements which give our undergraduates the opportunity of spending part of their studies in a university in Europe, Singapore or Japan. Our students, who come to us from many different countries as well as from the UK, are much sought after by employers in the legal and other professions.

    The School has over forty academic staff with a range of research interests which extend across doctrinal and socio-legal scholarship. Many of our staff are acknowledged leaders in their fields. We also have a growing body of research students and are currently expanding the facilities we make available to support their work.

    The Law School has a very active student run Law Club which organises a range of social events for students who study at the School and, of course, the University and City of Bristol offer a wide range of social and sporting facilities for those who come here to study."

    Undergraduate Degrees
    The School of Law has a large and vibrant undergraduate community. We are committed to excellence and innovation in teaching, and to ensuring that law students' learning experiences are stimulating and challenging. Academic standards are high.

    The popularity of the School and of the University more generally is reflected in the intense competition for places: each year we receive a total of over 2,500 applications for around 200 places.

    Postgraduate Degrees
    The School of Law has a substantial, international postgraduate community, undertaking a range of taught and research-based programmes under the guidance of the School of Law's expert staff. We are committed to excellence in teaching and learning, and in research. Our postgraduate students benefit from our strengths in both.

    A majority of our taught postgraduate students are enrolled on one of our specialist LLM programmes, which enable students to specialise in areas such as Commercial Law, European Legal Studies, International Law, Maritime Law or Public Law. We also offer a popular fast-track two year postgraduate law degree for non-law graduates, the MA in Law; and the new interdisciplinary MSc in Socio-Legal Studies.
