Welcome from the Dean: https://www.herts.ac.uk/study/schools-of-study/law/about-the-school-of-law
In addition to our innovative teaching and programmes, delivered by dedicated and experienced staff, you will benefit from studying in state of the art facilities. Our purpose-built courtroom provides a fitting forum for our award-winning Advocacy activities. You will have the opportunity to make use of the courtroom and put the law you learn in the classroom into an authentic, real-life context.
You will also have access to a 24-hour Learning Resources Centre and library, unrivalled Sports Village facilities and a large range of student accommodation on the de Havilland Campus. Find out more about facilities at the University of Hertfordshire.
At Hertfordshire Law School, there are a also a wide range of pro bono activities to get involved with alongside your studies to help build your skills. This includes volunteering at Hertfordshire Law Clinic who provide free advice to the local community. You could also provide support to litigants in person through our Support at Court project or design and deliver interactive presentations for schools and community groups as part of the Streetlaw project. You will also have the opportunity to represent the School in both national and international competitions for mooting, trial advocacy, client interviewing and mediation.
As well as embedding key professional skills into your modules, we work closely with the University’s Careers & Employment Service to organise career talks and events to support you in gaining the relevant knowledge, skills and experience needed to enhance your employability in the legal profession and other graduate roles. For example, we have a series of ‘conversation with’ sessions involving alumni and other speakers who share their career journeys and tips for success. We run and participate in graduate and law fairs, as well as hosting our annual law ‘speed-networking’ event with local employers.
We have a dedicated Law School ‘Employability and Career Enhancement’ site with a large number of career resources and up to date information about events and opportunities. We also have a LinkedIn group for Hertfordshire Law School students and alumni. Our University Careers platform ‘Handshake’ gives you access to wide range of support, events, job vacancies and skills enhancement resources. One to one support is readily available with our Director of Employability and the University’s Careers Team, as well as your own Academic Support Tutor.
