Excellent, self-contained, facilities: a place to 'belong'

The 2008 teaching audit report praised the "physical identity and coherence of the school."

This is achieved by offering self-contained high quality, teaching and learning facilities in the School. This enables students to identify closely with the School as their "academic home." Our "collegiate and welcoming" (2008 teaching audit report) environment reinforces this sense of identity and belonging.

  • Our teaching accommodation is well equipped and comfortably furnished. Our Law Alumni Lecture Room, for example, is a well presented 230 seater lecture theatre with excellent IT facilities. Our five seminar rooms are similarly provided.
  • Our purpose-built Mooting Room provides the perfect environment for our students to hone their advocacy skills.
  • Our Student Common Room provides a relaxed and informal space where students can meet up and chat, at the heart of the Law School.
  • All academic and support staff offices are in the Law School building making access by students easier.
  • The Law Library was rated as excellent in the 2008 teaching audit report. This commendation reflects not just excellent stock and an excellent environment but also excellent Library staff.
  • The Law School has extensive wi-fi provision and an IT cluster in the Law Library.
