    Lancaster University Law School

    Lancaster University Law School is one of the country's top 20 law schools, with an outstanding reputation for wide ranging traditional and contextual, interdisciplinary and socio-legal research of international excellence, and for effective, innovative and prize-winning teaching. We also stand out because of our size. With around 25 established academic staff, around 500 students in total, and an annual intake of about 160 undergraduates we are big enough to offer an excellent range of programmes and optional courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, whilst being small enough to keep a personal approach and a sense of intimacy and belonging.

    Students of Lancaster University Law School enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Apart from the many social events run by the student Law Society, students have the opportunity of engaging in competitive mooting including an inter-collegiate mooting competition organized by the society. (There is even a course based around participation in the Jessup International Moot competition, which can count towards your degree – though places are limited and highly sought-after.) Our students also undertake pro bono work through Citizens Advice Bureaux, the Streetlaw Project and the Innocence Project (in which students, under expert supervision assist prisoners who claim to be victims of miscarriage of justice to have their cases reopened and launch appeals). Lancaster law students can enhance their commercial awareness through Lawyers Aware, a scheme forming part of Students Into Free Enterprise and backed by Allen & Overy, one of the world's leading law firms. There are regular careers events and the School has its own careers adviser among the academic staff as well as a law careers expert on the staff of the university's careers service, CEEC, which also organizes commercial awareness events, training in how to give your best in selection centres and interviews, and can provide advice on CVs and on the wide range of careers law graduates can consider besides the legal profession.
