  • Facilities

    The School of Law is based on University Park Campus, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country and is just a 10-minute bus ride away from Nottingham city centre. Teaching and learning in law are heavily underpinned by the use of key online legal commercial databases and hundreds of ejournals. You will benefit from access to an extensive collection of resources, with printed collections that hold over 60,000 items for law including legal materials from the UK, the European Union, Commonwealth countries and the USA.

    Funding and Finance

    Students who normally live in England and have ‘home’ fee status can apply for loans to cover tuition fees and living costs from the UK government. Over one third of our UK students also receive our means-tested core bursary worth up to £2,000 a year. The University’s International Office provides support and advice for international students on funding, living costs, and working part-time, as well as providing support for sponsored students.

    Employability

    In 2015, 95% of law graduates who were available for employment had secured work or further study within six months of graduation (known destinations of full-time home first degree undergraduates 2014/15). Our careers initiatives include an annual recruitment fair, which attracts over 70 legal organisations and is one of the largest fairs of its kind in the country. As well as holding presentations and training workshops, many solicitors’ firms and barristers’ chambers provide additional support to students within the school.

    Societies

    You can choose from over 200 student-run societies at Nottingham, including the Law Society, which has strong ties to some of the UK’s top legal firms, the Bar Society, the Mooting Society, and the Pro Bono Society, which runs a variety of voluntary projects within the local community. There are also opportunities to get involved with Advocate magazine, which is published every semester and distributed for free to staff and students.

    Research

    The School of Law is a centre of research excellence, ranking 6th in the UK for research power in the latest Research Excellence Framework. Our academic staff are experts in their respective areas and their work is regularly cited by courts and other bodies. They are often called upon to offer advice by governments and organisations in the UK and internationally. The school’s research areas include criminal justice, human rights, mental health and public international law.
