We are housed in a modern teaching block in central Southampton which is equipped with state of the art seminar and lecture rooms. The School also enjoys a bright, modern, well stocked law library and extensive IT facilities, including off campus internet access for our students to most of the major legal resources.

We offer law related courses at all levels of study from HND to PhD, including our popular LLB (Hons) law degree, available as a stand alone or with a non law "pathway". Both the LLB and the LLB "with pathway" are qualifying Law Degrees for the purposes of becoming a lawyer in England and Wales.
