The University of Law is one of the UK’s longest-established specialist providers of legal education. With a rich heritage and a reputation for innovation and contemporary teaching practices, they continuously focus on developing the best legal and business minds. The University origins can be traced back to 1876 with the formation of the leading tutorial firm Gibson & Weldon, and later on, with the establishment of The Law Society School of Law. In 1962 the two were amalgamated to establish The College of Law, and in 2012 they were granted a full university title. In 2016 The University of Law launched their Business School, which has since seen expansion across multiple campuses and partnerships with leading international institutions such as GISMA Business School in Berlin.

The University of Law is at the heart of education as an acknowledged leader in innovative, professional legal and business teaching for prospective lawyers and business professionals, both in the UK and worldwide.
