  • UK: University of Derby offering qualifying law degrees

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

    The University of Derby is a university in the city of Derby, England. The main campus is on Kedleston Road, Allestree in the north-west of Derby close to the A38 opposite Markeaton Park. The university additionally operates a site in Buxton, Derbyshire, known as the Devonshire campus, a grade II* listed building which dominates the local landscape and has a dome which is over 145 ft (44 m) in diameter, bigger than that of St Paul's Cathedral in London. It was formally opened by Prince Charles in February 2006. A contemporary-styled building for Arts, Design and Technology students on Markeaton Street in Derby was formally opened in early November 2007 by Richard Branson. Courses are also housed in the Britannia Mill campus in Derby and the Chesterfield Centre for health education.

    The university provides nearly 300 study programmes at the undergraduate level. Undergraduate programmes as well as short courses, foundation degrees, and postgraduate degrees are generally superintended by individual faculties/research groups and cover most popularly-recognized academic disciplines and subdisciplines. The university's Joint Honours Scheme allows students to combine over 40 subjects from across all four university faculties.

    The university offers a variety of resources and facilities to its students, including computing laboratories, a Spa (Buxton), two computer games development suites, a life-like Hospital teaching environment with robot patients, a well-stocked Learning Resource Centre (opened in 1997) at the Kedleston Road campus, a restaurant run by culinary students, a university bus system, conference and/or colloquium settings, multi-functional lecture theatres, art and culture venues, concert venues, recording studios, sport centres, sport halls, fitness suites, outdoor pitches, student union bars and cafes, meditation/prayer rooms, natural/park environments, and frequent exhibitions by local, national and international organisations, businesses and product vendors.

    School of Law and Criminology

    The National Student Survey recently rated Derby's law course number one in four categories including overall. This small teaching institution prides itself on getting students to practice their law skills. As a result, it provides considerable support for pro bono legal work in the community. Its work in criminology has a similar practical feel, with an emphasis on encouraging justice and diversity in the Criminal Justice System. It provides Masters study in Commercial Law; Information, Media and the Arts, limited PhD opportunities, qualifying and non-qualifying law degreess and specialist undergraduate study in Crime and Justice. Notable research holdings include the private papers of Sir Gerald Fitzmaurice and the travaux preparatoires of the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi.

    In the latest Guardian Law league table, Derby was the highest-placed New University and joint first in teaching and value added. However, it is profitable to note that the university as well as many others frequently argue the validity of university rankings. See Criticism of college and university rankings (2007 United States). A wide range of law related subjects are on offer.
