  • UK law degrees: Cardiff University

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

    Cardiff University (Welsh: Prifysgol Caerdydd) is a leading university located in the Cathays Park area of Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom. It received its Royal charter in 1883 and is a member of the Russell Group of Universities.

    In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, almost 60 per cent of all research at Cardiff University was assessed as world-leading or internationally excellent - 4* and 3* the top two categories of assessment.

    Ranked number 133 of the world's top universities, Cardiff University celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2008. Before August 2004, the university was officially known as University of Wales, Cardiff (Welsh: Prifysgol Cymru, Caerdydd), although it used the name Cardiff University publicly.

    Cardiff Centre for Ethics, Law and Society - About

    Led by Cardiff Law School and based at Cardiff University, this virtual centre connects researchers and practitioners in medicine, science, information technology, the social sciences and humanities.

    The Centre was launched in January 2003 and is committed to providing a virtual learning environment for the cross-disciplinary teaching of ethics. In March 2004, Professor Søren Holm joined CCELS as its new Director.

    • Business & Professional Ethics;
    • provide a resource which is both useful and attractive to academics, professionals, policy makers and citizens;
    • provide a resource for researchers seeking partners to address the ethical, social and legal aspects of their work;
    • provide a resource for policy makers seeking expert advice;
    • provide an educational resource.

    Cardiff Law School

    Cardiff Law School is a large, well resourced centre of excellence which plays a full role in serving the University in its mission as one of the UK's leading research institutions. The results of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) recognise Cardiff Law School as one of the UK’s leading legal research bodies, placing it 7th in the UK. The results class 60% of the School’s research activity as world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*). The School's international reputation is reflected in the number of distinguished academics visiting from all over the world, a number of leading law journals based and edited in the School and it being the home of a range of highly regarded research centres such as BRASS and the Centre for Law & Religion.

    We have a large number of academic staff, including eighteen Professors and six Senior Lecturers. Individual research interests are detailed in the staff list.

    The School offers a range of undergraduate (LLB) and postgraduate (LLM) programmes, while the Centre for Professional Legal Studies runs the highly successful Legal Practice Course, and Bar Vocational Course. As an institution we receive a significant number of our students at both undergraduate and postgraduate level from other jurisdictions, making this a cultural diverse and friendly environment in which to study. Our teaching staff include top names in various fields of expertise. In an increasingly 'globalised' world which emphasises specialisation in the international context you can be assured studying at Cardiff Law School will help prepare you to play your part and also provide you with the skills to be able to adapt within the changing legal profession.

    The Law School occupies a substantial building on the University site in the city, close to courts and major law firms. There is also a dedicated Graduate Law Building next to the School building where the postgraduate office and facilities are situated and where much of our LLM teaching takes place. Cardiff's architecturally renowned public buildings are complemented by a vibrant commercial centre and the Cardiff Bay redevelopment. The University's location in the magnificent Civic Centre is adjacent to the home of many of Cardiff's cultural and sporting activities, including the National Museum, the Welsh National Opera, the world class St. David's concert hall, Cardiff Castle, and the Millennium Stadium.

    The Law School has an outstanding library close to the building with 70,000 volumes, 296 serial publications and a stock expenditure of ??£130K per annum (more than twice the median for UK Law Schools).

    Excellent IT provision enables all staff to have individual use of networked (LAN and Internet) PCs with access to Lexis/Nexis, Westlaw UK and many other services.
