We value teaching excellence, with the University of Nottingham recognised as delivering a Gold standard in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The school provides a supportive, modern teaching environment and delivers innovative, research-led teaching.
The school continues to attract diverse, motivated and high calibre students who engage with and enhance our rich intellectual and social life. We offer our undergraduate students qualifying law degrees which encompass the foundations of English law through core modules covering tort, trusts, contract law, public law, criminal law, EU law and land law.
The school is committed to being an international hub and offers students the opportunity to spend a year abroad with our LLB and BA Law degree programmes. Our students have options to study across the globe in countries including New Zealand, Canada and Singapore. Students can also choose law with languages, which includes a year studying abroad.
Our postgraduate programmes enable students to develop advanced understanding and conduct innovative research of their own. They align with key research areas and enrich our research strengths. Taught courses include LLMs in International Commercial Law, Human Rights Law, Criminal Justice, Public International Law, and Public Procurement, whilst our six research centres and links to leading institutions around the world make the school a dynamic centre for PhD study.
