University Of Bedfordshire Law
The law teaching staff at the University of Bedfordshire have expertise in a wide variety of areas which helps research activities to thrive.
We provide a stimulating and challenging study environment where students are exposed to the latest thinking and developments in theories in the legal sphere.
With a wide range of activities on offer, students will also be given the chance to develop practical skills which are increasingly important as you progress through your legal career.
Our courses which are approved by the SRA include an LLB Law course on both Luton and Bedford campuses. All our postgraduate provision is based in Luton.
As modern students you will quickly learn that you must challenge theories and evidence in order that you can come to a better understanding of the subjects you are studying.
The Centre for Research in Law (CRiL) is the focal point for our rapidly developing research activities.
The centre provides an intellectual setting in which academics, visiting scholars and postgraduate students interested in legal studies can regularly meet, exchange ideas, present research papers and formulate new research strategies.
A Law Clinic opened in 2015 which offers students the opportunity to work with real clients on a variety of issues.
The Refugee Legal Assistance Project (RLAP) has been running for a number of years and allows students to work with real clients. The RLAP is primarily focused upon family reunification and has been recognised for its achievements on a number of occasions.
Our students use the facilities in the Moot Court, refitted in 2015, where apart from seminars and lectures mooting competitions are being held.
Mooting develops legal skills of analysis and interpretation, and also useful personal skills of conducting an argument and public speaking.
