What we offer

UCL Laws is home to an intellectually diverse and dynamic community of legal scholars

This multi-disciplinary approach to research is reflected in our teaching, and in the range and breadth of programmes we are able to offer to our students.

You will be able to take advantage of a range of teaching methods as part of your learning, and during lectures, seminars and tutorials, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the principles of law, and to understand its role in governing the relations between the individual, the state, and society.

Through discussion and debate with your classmates and tutors, written assignments and role-playing exercises, you will develop your ability to communicate in a clear and effective way, sharpen your powers of reasoning, and gain the technical expertise to solve legal problems.

All of our undergraduate programmes are recognised as qualifying law degrees by the two main legal professional bodies, the Bar Council and the Solicitors Regulation Authority, for the purpose of exemption from the academic stage of their professional examinations.

"The UCL Laws experience is a powerful one"

"It promotes the pursuit of academic excellence alongside the abundance of the university experience, all taking place within our tight-knit community. Our time at UCL Laws is truly a preparation for life."

Shawn Siah, UCL Laws Undergraduate Law Society President 2018-19
