During your Law programme you’ll be taught by leading academics whose research has global impact and directly influences the curriculum and course content. Your learning is supported by excellent academic facilities and study areas, including a large library which holds copies of essential texts and is open 24 hours a day, 363 days a year.

York Law School is a radical modern law school which delivers innovative programmes designed to provide you with the intellectual challenge of an academic discipline while simultaneously preparing you for the world of work after the completion of your course.
A large part of the teaching programme is delivered through problem-based learning. In small groups, together with a staff tutor, students take on the role of a member of a ‘law firm.’ Each firm is presented with different problems - often brought to them by ‘clients’ in a simulated practice setting. This method of teaching and learning require a great deal of work and interaction with peers and staff. The result is a demanding programme which facilitates a much deeper understanding and appreciation of the law.
York Law School has an extensive Careers Programme, designed and delivered by a full-time Law Employability Tutor. This includes collaborations with leading law firms, as well as skills sessions and one to one meetings to support your personal development. Graduates from the York Law School have an excellent record of securing employment across a variety oflegally-related careers worldwide.
