Open days

Students at open day

If you want to get a flavour of what ULaw is about, you should come to one of our undergraduate Open Days.


It’s a great way to find out about how our courses are taught, meet our tutors and current students, and learn more about our Careers and Employability team. But importantly it gives you an opportunity to get a feel for the campus, and the surrounding location. There’ll be talks, taster sessions and tours, so you can check out our facilities and soak up the atmosphere, whilst getting a chance to ask your questions.


From time to time, we’re also offering Online Open Days for our courses. So if you can’t make it to one of our on campus Open Days, you still have the opportunity to find out what it’s like to study at ULaw or The University of Law Business School, and ask your questions, from the comfort of your own home.


For our undergraduate Law courses, we have campuses in up to eight great locations, so visit an Open Day at the location to suit you - you can find out more about our undergraduate locations on our campus locations page.  


All our latest Events and Open Days are found on our Open Days & Events page.
