Situated in a warm and green City on the south coast of England and just over an hour away from London, the University of Southampton offers students a vibrant and cosmopolitan city in which to live and study.
Southampton is a UK top 15 research-led Russell Group University and is ranked 81st by the QS World Rankings 2015/16 and 14th in the 2016 Guardian University Guide.
At Southampton Law School we are proud to be one of the leading law schools in the country with a worldwide reputation for excellence in education and research. We have a strong network of links with business and industry and are home to some of the most prestigious research centres in the world, including: The Institute of Maritime Law, The Institute for Law and the Web and The Institute of Criminal Justice Research.
ourselves on the welcoming and supportive environment that we create for our
students. Support for Canadian students in particular is unparalleled: ranging
from a dedicated Canadian Law Library on campus through to our Canadian Law
Society, Canadian Law Ambassadors, tailored careers support and guidance for
moving back to Canada with your Southampton LLB.
Students are also supported with an extracurricular programme that helps them forge professional contacts and gain work experience through our careers fair, employability skills programme, skills development projects and a variety of Pro Bono initiatives. We are also unique in that we offer our students the opportunity to moot from Year 1 in our newly built state-of-the-art Moot Court.
Southampton Law School is one of very few Law Schools in the UK to offer a 2 year accelerated LLB programme with a JD Pathway. At the heart of this programme is our flagship ‘Canadian Constitutional Law programme’, giving our Canadian students the edge when returning to Canada to prepare for practice.
For these reasons, Southampton has a thriving Canadian student community of around 70 students currently studying with us and we look forward year-on-year to welcoming a new cohort of talented individuals.
