City University London For Law
The City Law School is one of London’s major law schools offering an impressive range of academic and professional courses.
We are the first law school in London to educate students and practitioners at all stages of legal education. With three levels of study – undergraduate, postgraduate and professional – we offer courses suitable for everyone interested in following a career in law no matter what stage they are or where they are from. In addition, the School also offers a wide range of tailored CPD courses for qualified lawyers and those in associated professions.
The City Law School, incorporating the former Inns of Court School of Law, was the first University Law School in London to educate students and practitioners at every stage of legal education.
We were one of the first law schools in London to educate students and practitioners at all stages of legal education and have a rich heritage as a legal education provider.
The School incorporates the former Inns of Court School of Law (ICSL) – the original provider of bar training. The name Inns of Court School of Law was discontinued in 2008 when the School simply became The City Law School to reflect the breadth of academic, postgraduate and professional education that we provide.
As well as being the original provider of bar training, the School also was one of the first providers of the Graduate Diploma in Law. Started in 1976, our GDL is one of the most respected conversion courses in the country for non-law graduates.
The School is part of City, University of London. Founded in 1894, City in the top 4% of world universities according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016.
Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. As students of City they will continue to benefit from its array of student-focused services, facilities and activities, as well as from our connections with the practising bar and from our outstanding graduate employment record.
