UCL Faculty of Laws


Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Find out more about our commitments to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and how we aim to create an environment for all staff and students.

UCL Faculty of Laws is consistently ranked as a leading Law School, both nationally and internationally*. To maintain that reputation, we are absolutely committed to ensuring that the doors at UCL are open to the best and most academically able students from across the globe regardless of background. 

This commitment to academic excellence and equality is part of the Faculty’s DNA. The Faculty was the first Law School in England to admit students whatever their religious background, and in 1888 Eliza Orme, the first woman to obtain a law degree in England, graduated from UCL Laws.

At UCL, we believe equality of opportunity and academic excellence go hand-in-hand. Those ideals are at the heart of everything we do. The purpose of our scholarships is to promote equality of opportunity regardless of family circumstances, race, sex, sexual orientation or disability. If you have the talent, UCL is the place for you.
