UCL Laws was ranked the top Law department in the UK for research environment in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, REF 2014. Bentham House, the historic home of UCL Laws, is based in the heart of legal London - giving our students a unique opportunity to draw on the resources of the centre of the UK’s government, legal and financial communities.
