It is often referred to simply as "Queen's", or by the abbreviation "QUB".

    School of Law

    Law has been studied and taught at Queens since 1845. The years since have seen many changes and challenges for lawyers in Belfast. Legal and political developments have drawn a great deal of interest to law throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as to the distinctive aspects of the Northern Irish legal system. In more recent years the impact of globalisation has led Queens, in common with law schools throughout Europe, to a growing interest in European, international and comparative law.

    The School of Law received an impressive top-ten ranking in RAE 2008, finishing 7th in the UK, with a weighted average score of 2.80. The results show that 95% of research in the School is of international quality and above (4*, 3* and 2*), with 60% of research rated as world-leading or internationally excellent (3* and 4*).

    Those of you interested in studying law at QUB will find in these pages information on the wide range of courses we offer. At undergraduate level this includes courses in law with languages, and law with politics, as well as the LLB degree.
