My tutors, who are all qualified lawyers, barristers, and judges, were fantastic – intellectually sharp, organised, and offering strong content packed lectures based on their own lived experience of practicing law. They are also really supportive and always available for a chat. The Uni also has a wide range of electronic resources and journals that are incredibly helpful. There plenty of opportunities for practical placements, thanks to its connections to all the major City of London law firms, which is invaluable experience in starting a legal career. The career support and legal vacancy database available is incredibly helpful.
