    About the School

    The School of Law at the University of Reading is one of the United Kingdom's leading law schools. We have an excellent reputation for our teaching which draws its strength from our position as an internationally renowned centre of excellence in research. Our high standing as a School has been confirmed by a succession of recent official appraisals and student surveys. Indeed, our School was ranked joint 11th for research among sixty seven UK law schools in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), and is consistently highly rated in terms of student satisfaction by National Student Surveys and the University of Reading's own student surveys. The School is based on the University's Whiteknights campus and is housed in Foxhill House, a grade II* listed building and formerly the home of a Lord Chief Justice that has been adapted for use in the twenty-first century. This building is at present being extended to provide additional space for both students and staff. On this website, you can access information about our undergraduate and postgraduate offerings, our varied research interests, and get an insight into the operation of the School.

    The School not only provides a vibrant academic community; in addition to teaching and research we organise and host a wide range of practical and social activities. We have a strong commitment to encouraging students to plan for their future employment, whether in the legal profession or elsewhere, and provide opportunities for mooting, negotiation, pro bono activities and meeting members of the professions. We pride ourselves on maintaining an active and lively community ethos within the School, wherein students and staff regularly come together to debate, dissect, and better understand the law. The School was founded in 1973, and has grown over the years to an annual intake of approximately 175 undergraduates. In addition we have a twinning programme with Taylor's University College Malaysia and each year we welcome at least fifty students from Taylor's to either part 2 or part 3 of the LLB. We also have an active and substantial community of postgraduate students enrolled on our taught and research degree programmes, and all of our postgraduate students are encouraged to play a full and active role in the life of the School. Our student body includes scholars from across the European Union, virtually every common law jurisdiction in the world, and many other countries as well. There are currently thirty-nine members of academic staff, and seven office and support staff including a dedicated IT supporter and a student support advisor.

    If you need to get in touch with a member of our School regarding any question or inquiry, you will find relevant contact information on this site. My colleagues and I welcome your interest in our School, and I hope that you will be able to come and visit us soon. I am sure that, when you do, you will also want to be part of the unique, lively, and exciting community of scholars based at the School of Law!

    Postgraduate taught courses

    The School of Law offers two kinds of taught postgraduate programmes:
    • Master of Law degrees (LL.M)
    • Masters of Research degrees (MA Res or M Res)

    The LL.M programmes
    • LL.M (Advanced Legal Studies)
    • LL.M (European Union Law)
    • LL.M (International Law and World Order)

    The M Res programmes
    • M Res (Law)
    • M Res (Law and Society)

    The LL.M programmes
    The International Law and European Union Law programmes are associated with major research clusters in the School. The Advanced Legal Studies degree allows students to draw on the breadth of research strengths in the School to tailor a programme that meets their needs and interested.

    In each programme students undertake taught modules totalling 120 credits during the Autumn and Spring terms (October – May/June), and then write a dissertation (60 credits) from May/June until September. To see the modules on each programme, click on the specific programme links above, or you can look at the full list of modules that are offered across the different programmes.

    LLM programmes are especially suited to candidates who are wanting to build careers in areas of legal and government policy; non-government organisations; legal, research or policy positions in international or European institutions; legal practice; and any number of fields which require high-level legal knowledge, a sophisticated appreciation of the relationship between law and its political and social context; advanced skills of critical analysis, and superior research and writing skills.

    The Masters of Research programmes
    The Masters of Research programmes are designed to expand students' knowledge, critical and conceptual abilities, and build their research skills in a way that will prepare them for PhD study and/or research-based careers. These programmes also require students to undertake taught modules and write a dissertation, but the modules will often be undertaken through guided reading and supervision (rather than small group seminar classes), assessment will usually be based upon research essays, and there is a significant focus on the development of the skills require to design, conduct and analyse research.

    M Res programmes are especially suited to candidates who are wanting to proceed to PhD studies, or who are wanting to build a career in a field that requires high-level research skills, such as research and policy positions in government, non-government and international organisations and specialist legal positions (including working as a barrister). The School's Why do your Postgraduate Law degree at Reading? will also be useful for M Res students.
