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

    Durham University is a university in Durham, England. It was founded as the University of Durham (which remains its official and legal name) by Act of Parliament in 1832 and granted a Royal Charter in 1837. It was one of the first new universities to open in England for more than 600 years, and is generally considered England's third oldest after Oxford and Cambridge (although other higher education institutions also make this claim – see third oldest university in England debate). Durham is a collegiate university, with its main functions divided between the central departments of the University and 16 colleges. In general, the departments perform research and provide centralised lectures to students, while the colleges are responsible for the domestic arrangements and welfare of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral researches and some University staff. Colleges decide which students they are to admit, and appoint their own fellows (senior members). In Durham, "the university" often refers to the University as opposed to the colleges.

    The Chancellor of the University is Bill Bryson, appointed by the University's Convocation on 4 April 2005. The University was named Sunday Times University of the Year in 2005, having previously been shortlisted for the award in 2004.

    The post-nominal letters of graduates have "Dunelm" attached to indicate the university.

    Durham Law - 4* Research and Teaching

    Durham Law School was ranked 4th Law School in the UK in the 2008 RAE, an excellent result, on a par with the 2001 result. The School also returned 100% of its staff in the RAE.

    The ranking is based on the percentage of submissions graded 4* (world class); it is also based on the percentage graded 3 or 4*; we are 3rd based on the percentage graded 2* or 3* or 4*. We were also 4th by Grade point average.

    The School also achieved the top rating of "Excellent" for its teaching in its last inspection by the Quality Assurance Agency and is consistently rated one of the top UK law schools by the Good University Guide.

    Our teaching benefits from our research at every level, and our academic staff, together with our postgraduate and undergraduate students, comprise a dynamic and focused intellectual community. The reputation of our programmes, scholarship and student experience ensures a very competetive application process. We have a diverse student intake from across the world and our graduates are in high demand, with an excellent record of post-graduation employment.
