Lancashire Law School is a well-established legal hub in the North West of England with over forty years of providing legal education. It is an exciting and vibrant place to study law offering students innovative courses and a great many extracurricular opportunities to develop their legal knowledge and skills.
Lancashire Law School has been Highly Commended as “Legal Educator of the Year” by the Solicitors Journal Awards 2017.
Our students are encouraged and supported to take part in national and international competitions. Our students have had many notable successes both nationally and internationally with our students winning the award for the best team and the best individual mediator in the National Mediation competition, and winning the regional heat of the National Negotiation Competition.
We offer great opportunities for international travel. Students can study our law degrees at our campus in Cyprus or in Mauritius. The Law School also offers study trips across Europe to places including The Hague, Auschwitz, Brussels and Luxembourg, as well as the opportunity to enhance employability skills with our week-long leadership course in Cyprus. There have been opportunities to travel on exchange trips to Mauritius. Our Study Abroad programme offers even more options to study overseas – in almost any destination worldwide.
In addition, a number of our modules will give our students qualifications additional to their degrees. Students can become accredited Mediators and gain Associate membership of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators significantly enhancing their employability prospects.
UCLan has excellent library facilities and the Law School has a dedicated librarian. The library is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during term time and, in addition, e-resources can be accessed remotely any time of the day or night.
At Lancashire Law School we often welcome guest lectures from across a range of professions to talk to students as we are mindful that not all our graduates will want to enter the legal profession. We aim to expose our students to a variety of professions and opportunities that will be relevant to them, from High Court Judges to a hostage negotiator, all of whom enhance our student’s experience and networking opportunities.
