UCL Faculty of Laws


UCL’s Inclusive Law School

We pride ourselves on the collaborative, inclusive and welcoming atmosphere of UCL Laws.  We recognise that we must move beyond expressions of solidarity to look at what additional practical steps we can take to improve access to UCL Laws and in the wider legal profession

Message from Professor Piet Eeckhout, Dean of UCL Faculty of Laws

Piet Eeckhout

Our vision is of a faculty which provides a diverse, inclusive and deeply non-discriminatory home for both staff and students – competitive as well as caring to achieve excellence and to allow all its members to flourish.  We are committed to diversifying our community, in particular, supporting students  from low-income families, care backgrounds, low participation neighbourhoods, from Black and minority ethnic groups, or students with disabilities to complete a degree in Law and develop a career in the legal profession.  In doing so we work with alumni and associated external bodies to assist in the progression towards a more diverse and inclusive legal environment, both academic and professional.

As Dean of UCL Laws, I am committed to upholding the values of openness and inclusivity upon which UCL was founded. As a faculty we are always thriving to do better, and we continue to develop a range of practical opportunities for prospective students who would like to study with us. We offer masterclasses and summer schools for Year 12 and Year 13 students from underrepresented groups, we have revised our contextual offer for undergraduate students eligible for the Access UCL scheme and we offer a range of means tested scholarships for talented and gifted undergraduate and postgraduate students who may otherwise not have the means to access higher education.                    

We understand that the path to higher education can seem out of reach for many and we are determined to changing this.
