  • UK law degrees: University of Leicester

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

    The University of Leicester is a research led university based in Leicester, England, with approximately 20,000 registered students - about 13,000 of them full-time students and 7,000 part-time and/or distance learning. The main campus is a mile south of the city centre, adjacent to Victoria Park and Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College.

    On 23 October 2008 the University was named University of the Year by the Times Higher Education at their annual awards celebration.

    University of Leicester

    The University is organised into six faculties.
    • Faculty of Medicine and Biological Sciences
    • Faculty of Arts
    • Faculty of Law
    • Faculty of Science
    • Faculty of Social Sciences (expanded in 2004 to include the Faculty of Education)
    • Faculty of Engineering

    The Faculty of Law

The Law School has strong formal relationships with top law schools in many other countries such as France, South Africa, Singapore and Australia. It also has a number of leading academics who provide consultation to a number of legal and governmental bodies such as Professor Erika Szyszczak, Professor Chris Clarkson and Professor Malcolm Shaw QC.

    In July 2007, two undergraduate law students, namely Steven Meltzer and Michael Weinstein won the International Negotiation Competition in Singapore, which is only the second occasion that a team from England and Wales has won the competition. As a result of this win, the law school will be the hosts for the 2008 National Negotiation Competition, which is sponsored by the College of Law and CEDR.

    The Faculty maintains links with many top law firms, including the Magic Circle firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, who offer a one year scholarship to a Leicester student studying for the dual Law and French degree. The Law School is very proud of its flourishing Student Law Society which plays a central role in the life of the student body. Many law graduates at the university go on to follow careers in the City as commercial solicitors or barristers and so law at the university remains a popular choice and is always over-subscribed.

    According to the Times Online Good University Guide 2009, the Faculty of Law is ranked 8th, out of 87 institutions, making it one of the top law schools in the country.
