The School of Law, with its purpose built courtroom and specialist teaching facilities opened its doors to its first cohort of law students in September 2016 with the start of the LLB (Hons) Law programme – a Qualifying Law Degree recognised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board as covering the academic stage of qualification to be a Solicitor or Barrister.
The teaching team is made up of barristers, solicitors and legal academics with a range of research interests and professional experience. All the team are highly experienced lecturers and active researchers in their areas. Students in the School of Law will be taught by lecturers who are not only experienced and highly motivated teachers but also legal academic experts in their fields.
Law at Worcester is designed with employability in mind and students will have many opportunities throughout their studies to take up opportunities such as mentoring, work placements and mini- pupillages. Many of these will be provided through the Law Forum, a body made up of leading legal professionals, designed to provide opportunities for School of Law students. Students will also have the opportunity to work in the School of Law’s Legal Advice Centre that will open in January 2017, giving free advice to members of the public under the supervision of practicing solicitors.
