Ideally situated within Nottingham’s stunning One Royal Standard Place, ULaw’s latest campus will benefit from all the amenities available in the city centre. The central location of the campus also places it in the immediate vicinity of local firms and businesses, which is integral to ULaw’s core objective of building strong local connections throughout the city. Victoria Garrad, Group HR Director at Gateley Plc, said: “We are proud to have partnered with The University of Law for more than eight years as part of our trainee programme and we strongly support the opening of their Nottingham campus. 

“Every year we take on a new cohort of trainees across all of our offices and currently our Nottingham and Leicester-based trainees have to travel to The University of Law’s Birmingham campus to complete their LPC and GDL courses. We have a strong presence in the East Midlands and it’s important that our trainees begin to develop their professional network in the area early on in their careers, as well as focusing on their studies; therefore having access to a campus in Nottingham will be highly beneficial for our future East Midlands trainees.”

ULaw will bring its renowned courses, which have had consistent success nationwide, to Nottingham and the surrounding areas. On launching next year, ULaw will offer the Legal Practice Course (LPC), Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and MA Law. ULaw Nottingham will also be a tech hub with the launch of an LLB with Legal Innovation and Technology, as well as the MSc Legal Technology.

For undergraduates, ULaw Nottingham will offer distinctive and unique LLB courses including a two-year accelerated LLB. With ULaw’s unique ‘Switch It Up’ offer, students are able move from one ULaw campus to another, should they wish to experience life in more than one city or switch courses to ULaw.

The University’s Business School, launched in 2016 with a view to providing innovative courses to equip students with real world business skills, will also offer a range of programmes in business and accounting at both undergraduate and postgraduate level at the new Nottingham campus, from 2020. Additionally, the campus will provide professional development courses to law firms and executive education more widely.

To celebrate the inaugural year in the City of Nottingham ULaw is also launching the ‘Nottingham Postgraduate Award’, available to all postgraduate students starting at the Nottingham Campus in September 2019. The £1,000 award will be offset against the course fee.

Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and CEO at The University of Law, said: “We are constantly looking for ways to grow and innovate. This innovation will be showcased at our Nottingham campus, where we will launch unique courses covering topics beyond traditional law and business, such as technology and criminology. The way in which we will deliver the courses is designed to cater to a diverse range of students too, with flexible learning, modular delivery, block learning and work-friendly teaching models all available.”
