Faculty of Laws

UCL Laws is an agenda-setting community of legal scholars: outward-looking to its core, with a deep and pervasive interest in “laws” (plural), including those of other jurisdictions and international and European law. It is a faculty which pursues international research collaboration with other outstanding institutions; which enables its students to study abroad and has highly selective dual-degree programmes; and which nurtures a global network of alumni.
