About University of Birmingham Law

For almost 100 years Birmingham Law School has led the way in legal education and research. One of the world’s finest law schools, we continue to provide our students with innovative, challenging and research-driven education.

Our research contributes not only to the legal profession, but also to business, governance, public policy, NGOs, and the arts, as well as to the discipline of law per se. Located in the country’s first civic university, we are a global, diverse and civic law school committed to excellence in all of our endeavours.

We provide an expansive range of programmes, for both undergraduate and postgraduate studies and employ a range of approaches in our teaching and our research, from the theoretical and doctrinal to the empirical and applied. Our research is recognised on a global stage, and our academics are frequent participants in legal debates and contribute to the policy-making process. We provide students with more than just a degree, and enable them to develop the skills required to enhance their employability.

Our Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research (CEPLER) presents students with opportunities to increase their knowledge of law in action through Pro Bono, Mooting and over 50 law-specific career events each year. CEPLER’s work is one of the many things that have led to Birmingham being recognised as the University of the Year for Graduate Employability in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016.
